Once you have installed Mavericks you will be able to see it in the App Store.
It's 19.99usd (think it was 13.99 ukp).

I have upgraded to Mavericks but can't see it in App Store
I do not mean OS X Server, what I'm looking for is Server.app which is part of (free) Server Admin Tools, used to administrator remote OS X Servers
I have found and installed WorkGroup Manager 10.9 but cannot find a 10.9 version of Server Admin Tools

The last version of Server Admin Tools was for OS X 10.7 Lion. It was exclusively replaced by Server.app as of 10.8 Mountain Lion. So, if you want to turn your Mavericks machine into a server, you have to buy into Server.app.

Thanks but I don't want to turn my MacBook Pro into a server - I want to be able to remotely access the 15+ OS X Servers which I administer
I need a version of Server.app which runs under Mavericks so that I can access these servers or it'll be a roll back to Mountain Lion I think

Yeah, you can also run Server.app without setting up your MacBook Pro as a Server. On the startup screen you can choose to connect to remotely control another server.

I know how Server.app works, I have used it or its equivalent for over 8 years
The point is that the version I've been using under Mountain Lion will not start up under Mavericks, just gives an error message
'You can't open the application "Server" because it is not supported on this type of Mac'
It also has a white no entry symbol stuck over the App icon

Then you surely know that Server.app and all of its equivalents in the past were always specific to the corresonding OS X version. You could not run Server Admin 10.5 on a 10.6 system. Alas, you have to install 10.9 Server.app (3.0), if you are running Mavericks on your Macbook Pro.

Here is the App Store link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/os-x-server/id714547929?mt=12

tbh I'd forgotten about the OS Version mis-match problem with Server.app and because I'd found a version of Work Group Manager that ran under Mavericks thought there'd be a version of Server.app as well
As there's no way we will be update all our servers to Mavericks, I'll just have to revert to Apple Remote Desktop and run Server.app locally
Thanks for jogging my memory Semmelroccys about
PS Since Apple stopped making XServes they don't seem to give a **** about enterprise useage
