Welcome to Sandbach School from the Headteacher, Mrs Sarah Burns.
Sandbach School is an 11-18 Comprehensive School for Boys that serves the communities of Sandbach, Haslington, Elworth and surrounding parishes in South Cheshire
We are a Free School/Academy committed to using the positive dynamics of the Arts and Sport to maximise the personal and academic potential of our pupils. We are determined to recognise the entitlement of all pupils to a quality and equality of experience, provision, care and support. We endeavour to marry all that we see as best in educational development with all that is desirable from the traditions of our past.
The school provides an inclusive education which goes well beyond curricular provision: blending traditions with innovation via both Year cohorts and a House system; prefects and a rigorous "colours" system; peer mentoring and a strong pupil voice in an active School Council; Commemoration Day and Awards Ceremonies.
The range of extra-curricular provision is outstanding, encompassing sport, the Arts, Combined Cadet Force and myriad clubs and activities. Extra-curricular relations are used positively to enhance in-class dynamic.
It is our belief that progress in all aspects of learning is affected by the quality of relationships forged within the school community, and that such relationships are unlikely to be maximised solely through the teaching situation.
The School has held the Investor in People Standard for the past decade. We seek to develop and equip our staff to enable them to meet the creative challenges of teaching and learning in the 21st century. The school was re-awarded with the Investor in People standard in March 2012.
