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.

Sandbach Day of Dance - Saturday 9th September

Day of Dance with a Spanish twist!

 

Sandbach ‘s Day of Dance will have an international flavour this year when Danze de Sans Chuse, a dance group from Zaragoza, Spain arrive to join in the fun. Danze de Sans Chuse will perform spectacular dances from the Aragon region accompanied by traditional Spanish music.

 

The organisers of Sandbach Day of Dance are absolutely thrilled that Danze de Sans Chuse have confirmed that they will be here on 9 September to dance alongside the ten English Morris Dancing teams. The colourful Spanish costumes and wonderful traditional music will add to the variety already on offer from our Cotswold, North West and Border Morris groups.

 

All of the teams will perform from 10:30am to 3:00pm by the Cobbles, Market Hall and Old Hall.  As well as watching the dancing, visitors can have a go themselves at free ‘Give it a Go’ sessions in St. Mary's Church Hall. No experience is needed since the Morris dancers explain what to do. (Look out for the timing of these sessions on the information boards outside the hall on the day.)

 

When not watching the dancers, you can browse the Town's wonderful Indoor and Outdoor Markets, enjoy the BBQ at the Old Hall or the light refreshments in St Mary's Church Hall. Let’s hope the Spanish team bring some sunshine with them!
