Guiding Philosophy

Working hand in hand with our community, embedding a culture of learning and inquiry to stimulate and sustain an ethos of global citizenship.

St. Andrew’s International Primary School educates and inspires children to value equality, emotional maturity, and independence of thought, work, and play. We nurture the whole person, including our students' physical and emotional well-being.


We value diversity, as learning and growth arise from open-minded engagement with other cultures and opinions. Our students aspire to be tolerant, caring and responsible citizens who uphold and model the school's core values.


We provide a challenging, internationally recognised British education where excellence in the English language is central. Intellectual curiosity, creativity and a passion for learning are shared by students and teachers as they strive for the highest possible achievement.

As a learning focused, non-profit making organisation, we are unequivocally committed to making a difference to our students; guided in our planning, development and educational processes by a clear strategic vision and fundamental principles. This clarity provides direction and certainty of the priorities and values of the school.

Values are the important and enduring beliefs or ideals shared by the members of a culture about what is good or desirable and what is not. These values exert a major influence on the behaviour of an individual and serve as guidelines in all situations. 


Our core values timelessly guide and influence decisions, acting as guiding beacons in the daily workings of SAIPS. 


The Core Values that St. Andrew’s champion and hold as fundamental are:

  • Respect

  • Integrity

  • Creativity

  • Collaboration

  • Empathy

  • Endeavour

The aims of St. Andrew’s International Primary School are:


  • To provide an education, cultural understanding and international awareness based on standards set for British schools.


  • To provide pupils with a wide range of educational experiences and learning opportunities that will prepare them for adult life with confidence.


  • To promote the school’s Core Values so that the school community feels secure and happy, and where all relationships are based on co-operation, tolerance and mutual respect.


  • To celebrate diversity within the school, local community, and wider world.
