Sandhill View is a popular Academy with pupils admitted each year from across the entire City of Sunderland. We invite and advise parents of children with disabilities to make a preliminary visit to help them to decide if we can make suitable provision for their child. Individual risk assessments and management strategies are provided for school trips and visits. You do not have to be from one of our feeder schools to attend Sandhill View Academy.
Please contact the school office to arrange an appointment. Tel: 0191 594 9992
