Welcome to Sandbach School Sixth Form! We are a growing and dynamic sixth form enrolling boys and girls from 16-19. Our primary aim is to provide outstanding opportunities for our students both inside and outside of the classroom and to maximise their potential. As one of the leading post-16 providers in Cheshire East, we have a proven track record of students achieving the best possible outcomes to best prepare them for life beyond school. In 2013 our consistently excellent A Level results were recognised by ALPS (A Level Performance System) as being in the top 5% of post-16 providers nationally.

Achievement at Sandbach School goes beyond the academic excellence that we all strive for. As you will see in the following pages, students in our sixth form are developed as people through a broad range of extra curricular opportunities and a student leadership programme. Whether you are successful in getting onto the Senior Student Team, or work as an learning mentor for younger students, you will be supported in your own personal leadership goals. Students’ long term aims and ambitions are also supported and developed through a program of advice and guidance that ensures all students are well informed to make decisions about their future.

As a prospective student, or parent, I hope you will find this website useful as you make your choices.

We look forward to welcoming you into our sixth form!

Head Boy Will, Welcomes Year 12

Welcome back after a long Summer break and congratulations on some of the best GCSE results the school has ever seen!Alex 161161

The move from GCSEs to post-16 study can seem very daunting, but everyone in the Sixth Form is here to support and guide you if you need any help or advice.

Whichever post-16 courses you’ve chosen, my advice is to work hard from the very start of term and make the most of the resources and facilities available to you in school. Use free time wisely, try and read around your subjects, make new friends and, above all, make sure you enjoy your time here. 

With a new year comes new opportunities, and I advise you to take advantage of what is available to you. Whether this is applying to join the Head Boy/Girl team, taking part in Aspire after school sessions, or representing the school in sports or the arts, there is something for everyone in the Sixth Form.  Who knows, I may be speaking to the next Head Boy or Head Girl of Sandbach School!

I hope you enjoy your time here at Sandbach School Sixth Form and that you achieve your aspirations both inside and out of the classroom.

Will Bloor, Head Boy.
