Welcome to Sandye Place Academy

Introduction

Sandye Place is a co-educational comprehensive Academy of approximately 500 children in the 9 - 13 age range, fed mainly from four lower schools in Sandy. The children are arranged in mixed ability forms in four year groups.

Class sizes are kept to a minimum to enable good pupil/teacher contact. As children progress through the Academy there is a gradual increase in specialist teaching to meet National Curriculum requirements.

The Academy also operates a House system where each pupil is assigned to a colour and House team (Challenge, Discovery, Endeavour, Pursuit, Venture). Pupils remain in the same team throughout years 5-8, to provide consistency and security, essential for all students.
