St Andrew's School - a primary school in an idyllic setting


I wasn't initially aware of St Andrew's School, until its Headmistress, Marianne Dalton, contacted me via my "feedback" page.

I am more than happy to include details of her school here and thank her for letting me know.

You see, folks, the "feedback" form does work!

This small primary school, situated in the charming, north Tenerife village of El Sauzal, has been educating children since 2003.

Employing qualified, experienced, English teachers, the school follows the British Curriculum and is for ages 3 to 12.

Classes are kept to a reasonably small size, to encourage a close teacher-pupil relationship.

The school consists of three classrooms and a playground

The first room is for Pre-school and Nursery children, ages two-four and is stocked with a computer, a laptop plus lots of games and puzzles. There is also a "house", a dressing up area and a reading corner.

Secondly, there is a room catering for Reception and Year One, which is a touch more formal. It features reading corners and computers.

The third is for years 2-6 and here the accent is on even more formal teaching. With ample resources, pupils can develop ICT skills and are encouraged to learn by research, using the library and the internet.

The playgound is a large, supervised area, featuring various items of equipment and outdoor toys.

The School Day

For the younger children, the day begins at 9:30 and ends at 3:30. The older classes begin at 9:00, but also end at 3:30.

There is a mid-morning break - 10:30-11:00 for the older children, 10:30-11:15 for the younger, when the pupils may eat any snacks they have brought with them.

Lunchtime occurs 12:30-1:30 for the older children, 12:30-2:00 for the younger and a hot meal is served.

The school opens its doors at 8:00 and, for parents who have to get to work, children may be dropped off at the school any time after that.

There is a selection of after-school activities on offer (for a small extra fee).

  • Monday - Arts and Crafts
  • Tuesday - Sports
  • Wednesday - German Classes, Board Games
  • Thursday - Stories and Drama

Extra Information

There is a weekly assembly, bringing the whole school together.

There is a sports complex situated a five minute walk from the school premises, which the pupils may use.

There is a uniform, items of which may be purchased from the school.
