Sixth Form
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 84% achieved a C or above in Maths, 78% an English qualification and 72% gained 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.

Non-uniform Day Tuesday 15th November

We are holding a non-uniform day, Tuesday 15th November, in aid of our long term charity link with The New Hope Orphanage Centre, Kenya. Their boy’s dormitory was condemned early this year. Our initial fund raising has helped the Centre to start the new dormitory building work and now more funds are needed to ensure that this work is completed.

Our non-uniform day will help to ensure that 75 boys are safely and securely housed in the future. If each student simply brings £1 for the privilege of not wearing school uniform on Tuesday 15th November, as a school, we will be able to raise approximately £1000 for the continued building work.

Thank you for your continued support with this very worthwhile and long term school charity.
