Welcome to St Andrew's School


Parent/Carer Notices:

This is a notice to all Parents / Carers that school will be shut to all students every day next week between 7am and 1pm due to Industrial Strike Action.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused for parents and carers and we have looked at ways to partially open the school during the strike hours but due to extremely low levels of staffing on site during the striking hours, this is not possible due to safeguarding our students.

School will be open to all students from 1pm each day until normal school finishing time at 3.25pm.

Residential students have been contacted seperarely by the Residential Team with their arrangements. 


On behalf of the students, staff and governors I would like to welcome you to St Andrew’s School.

St. Andrew’s School is a special school in Derby City offering education for secondary aged students. We are an inclusive school that has the specialist knowledge and skills to meet the needs of students aged 11 – 19 years with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. This includes those with Moderate Learning Difficulties (MLD), Severe Learning Difficulties (SLD) and Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

St. Andrew’s School offers high quality learning experiences to all students, with increasing priority being given to the development of skills that will be useful in adult life. We aim for a school community that enjoys learning, engages in a fun and exciting curriculum, and develops the confidence and skills that will support students for the rest of their lives.

We hope that you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a ‘flavour’ of the life of our school and the excellent work of our students and staff team. In addition to viewing our website, we warmly invite you to come and visit our school to find out more. To arrange this please telephone the school office.
