Sandroyd School

Academic Curriculum

Our Curriculum

Sandroyd is an ambitious forward-thinking prep school, well-placed to respond to the ever-changing demands and expectations of new generations of parents and children, built on a heritage of achieving excellence.

We are proud of our record of academic success at both Scholarship and Common Entrance level. The Honours Boards tell a consistent tale of excellence in examinations to all leading Public Schools. We recognise too that not all students will learn at the same rate and for those who need extra help with their studies there is a dedicated Learning Support Unit. Here the specialist teachers reinforce class work, teach learning skills as well as offer advice and encouragement on a one-to-one basis.

The academic side of the timetable is balanced by more practical demands in the form of Art, and Design & Technology. The specialist rooms for both of these disciplines are in almost constant use both during and out of class time and a significant number of pupils have submitted portfolios of their work to Senior schools. A fully equipped computer room keeps everyone up to date with the latest advances in technology and each individual has a personal e-mail address for private use.

It is our aim at Sandroyd that days spent here should be exciting, stimulating, rewarding, and fun. We offer all our children peaks that can just be climbed with higher ones for tomorrow. Wherever their talents lie we strive to develop them to the full and thus help them to make their way into the competitive world with confidence.
