St Andrew’s Prep boasts a truly international presence and over the last three years, more than 14 countries have represented by its pupils including China, Colombia, France, Holland, Hungary, Hong Kong, Italy, Kazakhstan, Nigeria, Russia, Spain, South Korea, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.

Support with Extra English

To help international students become stronger in English, and to benefit fully from all the educational opportunities on offer, St Andrew’s offers extra English lessons to all our overseas students. The programme is tailored to suit each child. Children are assessed on arrival and recommendations are made to parents through their agent or guardian.

Assisted transfers

A local taxi company offers the school a personal service using regular drivers. Arranged through the house parents, the taxi company offers assisted transfers to airports (Gatwick and Heathrow) for pupils at the start and end of each term, half terms and other occasions. Drivers accompany children to the check in and will personally hand them over to a member of the airport staff or will collect children from the airport staff and personally deliver them to St Andrew’s.

“The thing I’m most proud of having achieved at St Andrew’s is learning a new language,
learning to live without my family
and making new friends.”    


There are always activities arranged over the weekend.
