St. Andrew’s CE Primary School is a one-form entry, voluntary aided primary school in Stockwell. We are a small, friendly and successful primary school. We are known locally for our enthusiastic welcome and our family atmosphere. We have excellent relationships with our families and we know our children very well. Our aim is to ensure that all our pupils enjoy their time at St. Andrew’s and that they develop a lively and enquiring mind.
We value each other and every child as an individual.
Our curriculum at St. Andrew’s reflects the cultural diversity of our school and is designed to be exciting and interesting. Our aim is to ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential through a wide range of educational experiences. Our location in the heart of Lambeth means that the whole of London is on our doorstep. Our children frequently visit art galleries, museums and theatres. We regularly work in partnership with professional artists and musicians and have links with the National Theatre and the Royal Opera House.
We promote enjoyment for learning at all times and encourage children to be independent, reflective learners through the development of thinking skills.
In 2016, St. Andrew’s joined forces with another local primary school, Christ Church SW9 and together we form the SW9 Partnership. Our federation is an excellent place to start or further your career. We are dedicated to staff development and all members of our team have access to high quality in-house and external training opportunities. We also offer the opportunity for our staff to work towards a qualification such as the NPQML, NPQSL, NVQ or other accredited course. As a member of the St. Andrew’s team you will not only be given support in your current role, but you will be encouraged to develop your potential.
We currently hold the Investors in People Gold Award and in 2016, we also achieved the Professional Development Quality Mark (Gold). We are very proud of our successes and the strength of our school team. Our staff are understanding to each other and there is a genuine culture of mutual respect and support.
“There is a collegiate approach to the day-to-day running of St Andrew’s School. Although people are clear about their role, there is a strong sense of teamwork, which helps to ensure that people are supportive of their colleagues. This is effectively modelled at a high level, with senior leaders being approachable and willing to share their expertise on an ongoing basis.” (Investors in People 2016)
At St. Andrew’s our expertise does not just remain in our school, but is widely shared. We are a lead school for the School Direct programme and offer placements via the London Diocesan Board for Schools, several members of our staff team are Specialist Leaders of Education and we are also a strategic partner in the Lambeth Teaching Schools’ Alliance.

Holmewood Nursery school is situated in Central Lambeth, off Brixton Hill. The school is located in a densely populated area of contrasting households in terms of culture, ethnicity, and socio-economic status.
Holmewood provides education for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), with 95 full time equivalent places in the main nursery (2 - 4 year olds) and 12 full time equivalent places in the two year old provision. The school's intake is very culturally diverse with a high percentage of children from mixed, or Black-British / Caribbean / African backgrounds. Nearly half of the children speak English as an additional language, with many at the early stages of learning English.
Holmewood is federated with Maytree and Triangle Nursery Schools. As a Federated Nursery School, Holmewood is led by an Executive Head Teacher, Head of School and teachers working with other qualified early years practitioners. Holmewood offers highly inclusive education with qualified and caring staff. It has rich and varied indoor and outdoor learning environments that allow children to play and be active in developing and acquiring new skills and knowledge; children are well motivated and are thoroughly absorbed in their learning.
They are encouraged to experiment and explore and children are very well challenged to enable them to take risks safely and develop their own problem solving skills. Outdoor learning is supported through the Natural Thinkers curriculum and an extensive allotment.
Each child is allocated a Key Person, one of our skilled early years educators or teachers. They get to know the children in their group very well and work in collaboration with their parents. Teachers and practitioners support, encourage and facilitate learning opportunities so that children are happy, confident and independent learners.
All teachers and practitioners have a thorough understanding of children’s early learning and development and the early years foundation stage and understand the importance of working together with parents and other professionals.
At Holmewood, we believe in investing in professional development and bespoke training to meet individual needs so that all teachers and practitioners feel motivated and committed to the continuing success of the school.
Visits to the school can be arranged by contacting the school office.
