Junior School (K-6)
Welcome to our Junior School
St Andrew’s Junior School is a place where all students are known and valued, where a strong emphasis on quality teaching and learning spans from the very first days of Kindergarten to the final days of Year 6, and beyond.
A School in the Heart of Sydney
There’s something special about attending a coeducational Junior School in the heart of Sydney’s CBD Easily and safely accessible, our Town Hall setting means we have a diverse intake, with families coming from all over Sydney. Our students experience vibrancy both in and out of the classroom: with a specially designed semi-open plan learning space and city excursions that range from visits to the many galleries and museums at our doorstep, to expeditions through the historical precinct of The Rocks or outdoor discovery in the Botanical Gardens and Darling Harbour.
Engagement, Growth and Opportunity
We pride ourselves on offering true excellence for every student, with an intensive focus on best practice in teaching the fundamentals of Literacy and Numeracy. Our commitment to genuine engagement is complimented by specialised teachers and support staff and programmes offering growth and opportunity across Sport, Music, Drama and Language, as well as Outdoor Education (from Year 3 onwards). Christian Education and values of integrity and tolerance are folded into the framework of daily life. We share our rooftop playground with Gawura, a K-6 school within our school that caters for Indigenous students.
We seek to enable all students to experience broader skill development, confidence in self-expression and a sense of genuine belonging. We believe in a team approach to teaching – using School staff across Gifted Education, Learning Support and Counselling, as well as consulting outside experts, to ensure students received the most individualised and supportive learning opportunities.
