School Uniform amendment

From next week onwards there will be an amendment to the pupils’ uniform policy. Both boys and girls will be allowed to wear Ankle style boots/shoes in the winter months (The footwear must not go above the ankle and must be plain) . This is as a result of parental concerns with shoes getting ruined and the material of summer shoes not being appropriate.

Welcome to Sandye Place Academy

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. A Year Co-ordinator is responsible for establishing and develping pastoral arrangements within each year group, while co-ordinating the programmes of work and keeping records. They are assisted in this by form tutors who have direct responsibility for the overall academic progress and welfare of a class group of pupils.


Our History

The academy comprises of a Victorian Mansion House and extensive 1960-style, two-storey classroom and communal accommodation, set in attractive parkland with spacious grounds.
