About our school

 

St Andrew's School, in Burnham on-Sea, was established in 1856 and is a co-educational day school for pupils aged from seven to eleven. It is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England school, which means that the Church is represented on the Governing Body. We have a close relationship with the parish church of Burnham, which is also dedicated to St Andrew.

The original St Andrew's School occupied a site at the top of College Street on the sea front. The school moved to its present site in 1973 and is now housed in a modern building standing in its own grounds between Dunstan Road and Love Lane.

 

The school is built in a ring shape around a central courtyard. There are eleven classrooms, each with carpeted floor and sink area. The courtyard is pictured above. The figure in the foreground is the school’s founder, George Reed, and mounted behind him is the plaque from the original building.

 

In addition to classrooms there is an ICT suite, four group rooms, a base for Special Educational Needs and two toilet blocks. The main hall is used for PE, music and drama as well as for Collective Worship and as a dining area. Off the hall there is a therapy suite with full access toilet, and storage areas for dining furniture and PE apparatus. The school has been entirely renovated, and facilities as a result have significantly improved.   

 

The school grounds are extensive, with a large field, marked for football, athletics and rounders in season. There are two playgrounds with netball courts and other markings. Playtimes operate on a zonal basis, with areas designated for activities, some of them quiet! The School Association has provided equipment for these zones, which have been organised by the School Council. Access at the beginning and end of the school day is by the pupil entrance in Love Lane or the main entrance in Dunstan Road. Please note that, for security reasons, the Love Lane gate is kept locked during the day.
