Welcome to our school. You will have a glimpse, in these brief pages, of some of the experiences our students are offered as we guide them through their education. The curriculum, which encompasses all that they experience during their school years, is so much more than a collection of subjects.

Welcome to Sandon

Your Journey Starts Here


About Us


To create an inspirational community of learning and achievement with high expectations and high aspirations. This will be underpinned by a success culture that recognises, effort, hard work and practice. We are a forward looking school aiming to combine the highest standards and traditional values with high quality, innovative learning and teaching.


We have a commitment to achieving with honesty, integrity and independence ensuring that there is equality of opportunity for all. We aim to be a modern, innovative school with traditional values of good behaviour and good manners.


At Sandon we put our students at the heart of our learning and teaching, developing a curriculum that engages and challenges whilst being forward looking and inclusive.

Yes, of course we value traditional study, the ability to reason, communicate, calculate, analyse and to learn. We want our students to leave school with the best examination results they can achieve. Highly literate, numerate and articulate young people, with the ability to make their way in the world. But we want much more than this too. Our school vision gives a hint, but how do we make our young learners confident, ambitious and enthusiastic?

Our high expectations of every student are built into our curriculum, balanced with personal choice and creativity so that each can flourish within a safe but challenging framework designed to specifically fit their needs.

Parental Information

Working Together


Effective Partnership with Parents

We strongly believe in an effective partnership with parents and guardians if students are to achieve their maximum potential. There are a number of opportunities to keep you informed and involved. These include:

Parent Voice

Parent voice engages parents and carers by seeking feedback on all aspects of school life and in identifying how it can be improved. Regular parent forums are held in school.

Parent Consultation Evenings

Parents and students have the opportunity to meet with teachers on a regular basis to discuss their child's progress, achievement and general well-being.


Our PTFA is very supportive and is open to all parents (including past parents), teachers, representatives of the local community and indeed anyone interested in the growth development and success of the school.

Making mistakes is an inevitable part of the learning journey. If students slip back on their learning journey we will be there to pick them up and work with parents and carers to help them catch up. We expect everyone at Sandon to give of their best every day. Please come to see what we have to offer, we think you will be surprised.
