"Just wanted to say thank you to SPA. The roll of honour celebrates children of all abilities not just the most able. Children can be rewarded for trying their best even if they don't have the best ability. Thanks for making sure our children have the best values and are more rounded not just concentrating on academic ability."
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.
