St Andrew's High
Welcome to St Andrews high school, Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire.
St. Andrew's high school opened in August 2006 through the amalgamation of Columba high school and St. Patrick's high school, as an integrated, socially inclusive, community, Catholic high school, in the Diocese of Motherwell. We relocated to our new school building in October 2006. The school was built for 1350 pupils and has a community wing and sport centre. Our current roll is approx 1254.
St. Andrew's high school is a faith community based upon Christian values, and sets high standards in the service we provide. Our aim is to be a centre of excellence through the provision of high quality academic, vocational, personal, social and health education.
We are pleased to welcome young people of all faiths, whose parents share and support our aims.
In meeting the identified needs of our young people we work in close inter-agency partnership.
We foster an ethos and culture in which all pupils, staff, parents and members of the wider community feel that are valued as individuals and enable our young people to become confident individuals, successful learners, responsible citizens and effective contributors to society.
Our aim is to create a culture of high achievement and caring. Pupils are encouraged to develop a a sense of responsibility and to respond positively to the challenges they meet.
The new accommodation is excellent. Our facilities, resources and equipment, offer opportunities for greater diversity and flexibility in our curriculum.
We actively set and expect high standards from everyone in our community.
The school has already achieved a silver award for health promotion, a bronze award as an ecoschool, a charter mark from the cabinet office and the executive director of learning and leisure award for outstanding achievement.
We are a vehicle to raise achievement, promote and support social inclusion, and encourage community involvement, by offering the wider opportunities for lifelong learning, recreation, and leisure.
As a sports comprehensive we offer many extra-curricular activities at lunchtime and between 3.30pm and 6.00pm including football, athletics, badminton, volley ball, dance, netball, etc. Our outdoor, all weather, floodlit football pitches are the most modern in Scotland. We have many local clubs based in our sports centre.
We also have flourishing school band and choir.
There are nine associated primary schools, St Bernard's primary, Corpus Christi primary, Our Lady's and St Josephs primary, St Stephens primary, St Mary's primary, St Monica's primary, St Patrick's primary, St Timothy's primary and Alexander Peden primary in Harthill.
