Sandon College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people.
Please note that the college’s Uniform Policy published and shared with parents/carers in May 2014 states:
Coats - Sensible outdoor coat/jacket which is predominantly black or navy. However provided that the coat is clearly an outdoor coat and is broadly neutral in colour, this will be acceptable
All coats must be recognised as an outdoor garment. Fashion items, tracksuit tops/sweatshirts and cardigans are not permitted.
There have been no changes to this policy since then.
Therefore, beginning Monday 3rd November, this policy will be strictly enforced.
Furthermore, students will at all times be expected to wear the full uniform including their blazer at all times, including travelling to and from the college.
Outdoor coats must be worn over, not under, blazers.
The Governing Body which has considerable parent representation, fully supports the Uniform Policy and the need to ensure that it is followed.
If you have concerns or wish to discuss this further, please contact Heads of House/Year at the college, in the first instance.
We work hard to ensure that our students are happy in their learning environment. Here's what they think:
'My advice to new students is to ask the teachers if you experience any difficulties - they are always very understanding and helpful.' -Year 7 student

'Sandon has provided me with some excellent learning opportunities. I was involved in developing our China Links programme with our partner school in Shanghai and was very lucky to visit Zhen Hua School on an exchange visit.' - Year 10 student
