Our Learning Community
Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College enjoys a pleasant situation in the historic market town of Sandbach. As a community we work together to create a secure and friendly environment in which individuals can grow intellectually, emotionally and socially.
We take pride in being a caring and well-ordered community where everyone is encouraged to develop self-awareness and personal responsibility and play a full part in the life of the school. Our Code of Conduct is based on respect, courtesy and consideration. We make sure that students who work hard, help others and show responsibility in their behaviour are properly recognised through our awards system. Commitment and success in sport or music are celebrated in the award of distinctive colours badges.
Our extensive curriculum is broad and balanced, giving all students the opportunity to develop their potential. A wide range of learning and teaching strategies is used to actively involve students in the learning process. Progress is carefully assessed and monitored.
Young people entering Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College join a community which aims to put their wellbeing first. Students have a dedicated Pupil Reception area and on-site careers advisers as well as access to specialist counselling services and health professionals.
Each year group is guided by a team of form tutors led by an Achievement Coordinator. Their aim is to ensure that every individual makes progress in their achievement and personal development.
We listen to the views of our students. An extensive student questionnaire is used to inform school improvement planning and members of the school council play an important role in representing the pupil voice and contribute to the decision-making process.
Students were consulted about changes to the school uniform and the findings of student voice projects about learning and teaching are influential.
Our extensive programme of enrichment activities provides further opportunities for students personal development.
Outside the classroom.
We believe that a full involvement in school life fosters confidence, self-esteem and positive attitudes so we offer a very varied programme of extra-curricular activities. These take place at lunchtime, after school and in the holidays. We also encourage involvement in fundraising and other community projects and are proud of our students record of helping others.
