Leadership in the School

St Andrew’s has a vertical leadership structure, offering staff and learners the opportunity to serve in various ways in the best interest of all.

The school is managed by the SGB, a body of elected members from the school community (see School Governance).

The Senior Executive of the School manage the executive, planning and policy decisions of the school and The Headmaster and Deputy Heads of each school sit on the School Management Team (SMT) which oversees the day-to-day running of the school. Each school is then in the privileged position to have 2 HOD posts.

Within the learner body, there are also leadership and mentorship roles.


The prefect boys is democratically elected by the Grade 10, 11 and 12 learners annually. The prefects play a vital role in the day-to-day running of the school. They not only ensure discipline is maintained, but also undertake a number of projects to benefit the pupils and staff of Saints. They are the custodians of our proud traditions and ensure that the values and ethos of the school are transferred to younger generations of boys.

Prefects play an important role in the Hostel, as house prefects and mentors to the boarders in their house. The Head Boy lives in the hostel for the year, enabling him to keep abreast of the whole school and the day to day activities.


The Representative Council of Learners are elected at the beginning of each year by the high school learners. Two representatives are chosen from each grade to represent them on the leadership structures of the school.

These learners are responsible for building unity in the school, addressing issues and needs of all learners, encouraging good relationships within the school between all parties, promote the best interests of the school and set an example with regards to loyalty, discipline, respect, punctuality and active participation.
