St Andrew’s Primary School has become an Academy


St Andrew’s Church of England Primary School in Cobham is delighted to announce that the school became an academy by joining Esher Learning Trust (ELT) on 1 April 2017.


This is an exciting step for the school, providing the school’s leaders with greater freedom in significant areas such as the curriculum and financial control. The move also strengthens the already flourishing partnership with Esher High School.  St Andrew’s School is one of the ‘feeder’ schools for Esher High, which became an academy in 2014.


The plans for ELT are to expand with other primary and secondary schools joining in the future.  However, for the time being, the two schools will work very closely together, giving pupils and staff increased opportunities to share great practice and experiences.


St Andrew’s has established an excellent reputation in the community, recognised for its innovative approach to the curriculum and for its outcomes for all its pupils.  


“The school’s ambition is that every pupil will experience life in all its fullness and we believe this can be achieved by becoming an academy. It will allow us to extend and develop innovative initiatives, like the daily “Activity Hour”, in partnership with Esher High School. The school opted for the Esher Learning Trust because its aims and values mirror our own and we are confident that this bold move that will secure the school’s aims for its children, both now and in the future.”
