Sybil Andrews Academy opened its doors in September 2016. Our journey over the first four years of operation has seen us triple in size, our three-phased building project develop a state-of-the-art campus and we have seen the first two cohorts of students’ ‘graduate’ from the school with some great results. We are a school that is constantly evolving and developing and shaping our future.

Sybil Andrews offers a broad curriculum, brought to life by an engaging and skilled teaching body. We benefit from a purpose-built school with specialist rooms in a modern, university style campus. Our strong values of kindness, courage and responsibility create a culture of respect, tolerance, and personal challenge.

We strive to be a happy school where students are valued for who they are and what they could be. Strong relationships amongst students, staff and parents provide a sense of belonging and community. Student learning, progress and achievement are our measures of success and our relentless drive to ensure the best for our students is at the heart of what we do.
