As you step into St Andrews School, Keesara, you are greeted by not only the sprawling campus and cheerful faces, but an infrastructure along with culture and ethos that proves that our school is an amalgamation of the best of both worlds - the traditional and the modern. While qualities like mutual respect, tolerant attitude and value-based education show our respect for our age-old core values, our modern approach to education equip students with the 21st century skills, by instilling in them the knowledge and the attitude necessary to succeed in a technologically advanced world.

Our motto – Reach Out for Knowledge and Truth reflects our understanding and beliefs. Our main objective is to ensure that our students are provided with high-quality learning experiences, which gives them a solid foundation to build on, in an academic rich environment. We aim to offer a secure and happy place where every student is valued, every achievement celebrated and where the varying needs of students are understood and accepted.

We believe in building strong and positive bonds with students so that our students learn to be independent, think for themselves, become confident and responsible individuals who aspire to achieve their full potential and pursue their dreams in this ever-changing world.

Our team is committed to our students. Parents, in turn, you need to encourage and support your child by playing an active role in their education and development, and in maintaining a positive communication with school to develop a strong partnership. We believe that this cohesion will help us achieve excellence in our school.

“Build a dream and the dream will build you. No dream is too big, no wish is unattainable.
