As a relatively small secondary school, we have the opportunity to know each of our students as individuals.

Family and friendship is at the heart of what we do and we understand children learn best when they are happy, safe and secure.

Our key values of Teamwork, Hard work and Transparency guide us. Our students look 'To be the best we can be, by being true to our values'


Message from the Headteacher


At Sanders, we are incredibly proud of our inclusive approach, which is informed by the principle that a stimulating and personalised education is an entitlement for every child. The harmonious ethos and relationships underpin all that we do and provide the foundation success. We are proud to be a member of the success for all education trust as this feeds into our ethos os success.

We know that having a good education has never been so important. Our core role is to develop and support young people to become successful, academic, independent learners with excellent communication and employability skills. Part of this is ensuring students partake in truly memorable experiences which allow them to find their passion.

The support of our whole school community; children, families and the school is vitally important.

We look forward to welcoming you to our Sanders family.

Mr S Brooks
