It is with a great sense of pride that I welcome you to our thriving learning community here at Sandhill View Academy.
Students here have much to be excited about. We know that each and every one of our young people has huge potential and we want them to aspire to achieve their very best and enjoy learning each and every day. Our most recent Ofsted inspection recognised our ‘unshakeable belief in the potential of the pupils who attend the school’ and identified that our passionate team of teachers and middle leaders are ‘enthusiastic, energetic and up for the challenge of improving the school further.’ We are quickly gathering momentum and to put it simply, we are aiming for excellence in everything we do.
Our vision is underpinned by the belief that a high quality education has the power to transform lives. Our enthusiastic and caring team of staff are committed to ensuring that your child will learn in a warm and supportive environment and will encounter challenging, exciting and enjoyable educational experiences that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Our dedicated pastoral teams get to know every student in their care, understanding their needs and ensuring every effort is made to support their development both academically and as individuals.
Although high levels of academic achievement and progress are very important to us, we place equally high value on providing an impressive variety of exciting enrichment opportunities so that our students become rich in character, resilience and develop a strong moral purpose. Our aim is for all of our young people to fulfil their own dreams and make a positive contribution to the community in which they live.
We believe this can only be achieved by developing strong links with home and we actively encourage parental support and engagement in all areas of school life. We share our parents’ high expectations of their children and take great pride in creating an atmosphere in which we reward and celebrate the unique talents and individual successes of all.
We joined the Southmoor Multi Academy Trust in July 2015 and are keen to acknowledge the transformative effect of this inspiring partnership work. The aspirational and ambitious culture for the school is now embedded and has led to improvements which we are confident and determined will continue.
We are a welcoming and inclusive school and are proud to serve our local area. We think you will agree that our exceptional facilities provide a first class learning environment in which to make all of this happen.
Should you wish to find out more about the school, you are more than welcome to contact the office to arrange a visit, so that you can see first-hand what a special place this really is.
