Sanders School

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'
