Our story so far …
St. Andrew’s Montessori School has been open since 1996. In the early days it consisted of two classrooms and 14 children. Word of mouth and support from local families has helped the school go from strength to strength, and it’s now a thriving, busy little gem in the heart of Islington.
It has always been the main aim for Samantha Rawson (School Principal) to create an environment where children are viewed with respect and treated as individuals. At St Andrew’s, families are welcomed into a warm and nurturing atmosphere where we all have a great deal of fun together and learn a huge amount too.
Samantha cares not only for the wonderful families that attend the school but also for her amazing team of teachers. As the school has grown, so too has the staff; the members of which are dedicated to creating and maintaining this very special school. The experience and commitment of all our teachers mean that we have a very low staff turnover.
Being a mother of two, herself, Samantha knows firsthand the importance of finding a school that you can trust, communicate with and be a part of. In her own words St. Andrew’s Montessori is her third baby. The school has embraced change and growth over the years and we look forward to the new families that will join us in the future and the journey we will have together.
