As head teacher of Sandbach School I am very proud of our students and the standards that they attain. Our boys develop and thrive to become confident young men in a calm and purposeful environment with wrap around care that allows each student to flourish as individuals.
The school motto ‘Ut Severis Seges’ meaning ‘as you sow, so shall you reap’ is exemplified by our students in so many different ways. Academically, year after year, they achieve high standards. For example, in mathematics this year’s GCSE result of 85% A*-C is the best in Cheshire East and in English a result of 73% is 20% higher than the national average for boys.
However, I have always passionately believed in a holistic view of education which caters for the whole student and gives them the opportunity to develop their talents and passions. The extent of the opportunities available for students at Sandbach School astounded me when I first arrived at the school! Weekend sport and activities is unrivalled within Cheshire East. It wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of our staff that so often go ‘the extra mile’ in support of students.
