Head's Welcome

Sandbach School specialises in educating boys. Every aspect of school life is geared to create the right environment for boys to thrive. Statistically evidence from the UK and around the world demonstrates that boys achieve higher results and make better progress in single sex schools. We make no apology for focusing upon academic achievement and setting aspirational targets for our young men. But we balance this with a co-curricular programme of out of class activities which teaches our boys the need for hard work and effort before tasting success. Results academically are impressive: last year 89% achieved a level 4 or above in Maths, 80% in English and 75% gained the old measure of 5A*-C grades including English and Maths. All students left with qualifications which supported their chosen pathway – many returning to our Sixth Form but others gaining prestigious apprenticeships.

In other areas our boys have also excelled. Our aim is always to support them whatever their talent and passion and so the range of opportunity is truly expansive. We have had elite runners taking part by invitation in the London Mini Marathon. Students who have successfully made the national finals in table tennis and cross country. We are U16 county hockey champions and U14 runners-up. U13 Cheshire football champions and Cheshire County finalists in two other age groups. One of our students made the final of the percussion BBC Young Musician of the Year with another winning the best instrumental soloist at the National Youth Brass Band Championships. These are just a few of the successes from last year!

I hope that the website gives you a flavour of our ethos and values. If you would like to know more we warmly welcome you to visit us.

The Sandbach School Music Department offer a diverse and extensive extra-curricular timetable. There are groups and ensembles for nearly all instrumental disciplines which are run by both our music teaching staff and also by our peripatetic specialist tutors. Each year ensembles and groups are revised to support and accommodate our students and their musical interests.

Clubs are offered every lunchtime and after school. (Please see our current timetable below)

All of the ensembles are featured in our termly concerts throughout the academic year. We provide lots of performing opportunities for all ages and abilities, from beginner standard through to workshops where professional musicians visit the school and challenge our musicians with their expertise.

Additionally due to our facilities at Sandbach School and for being the venue for many of the Love Music Trust ensembles, we have a direct link for our students to be part of county based ensembles on a weekly basis . Please see the Love Music Trust website for further details about their rehearsal schedule:
