St Andrew's School is an independent, co-educational, Anglican primary school, located at Walkerville, an inner eastern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. The School was established in 1850 by St Andrew's Church to accommodate local children living in the 40 houses that made up Walkerville. The original School House is still used today as part of the new Gymnasium and Performing Arts Centre. St Andrew's School caters for approximately 400 students from the Early Learning Centre (ELC) to Year 7 with a strong Music Programme and a wide range of Co-curricular electives including Art, Drama, Tennis Coaching, Gymnastics, ICT Club, Chess and Debating.
St Andrew's School is affiliated with the Association of Independent Schools of South Australia (AISSA) and the Independent Primary School Heads of Australia (IPSHA).
For music students the school offers string orchestra, full range orchestra, three concert bands, choirs, handbells and various other ensembles.
Sporting opportunities include the annual swimming carnival, cross country run, sports days, gymnastics, dance, weekly inter-school sport (of which the school offers 12), representation in SAPSASA district and state teams for talented athletes.
From Year 3 students are divided into house groups. The four houses are Eggleton (Gold), Lawson (Red), Browne (Green) and Smith (Blue).
Celebrating 160 years in 2010 Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll was a gift to the students who attended the school that year.
