Childhood should be relished, enjoyed and remembered fondly. That’s why pastoral care is absolutely central to everything that we do at Sandroyd. Our friendly and nurturing boarding environment equips children with the confidence and skills to really challenge themselves, to be happy, and to succeed. Sandroyd pupils do stand out from the crowd – or at least that’s what Senior Schools tell us. We’re repeatedly told that our pupils are better prepared for the demands of Senior School – both in their academic abilities, but more importantly in the all important ‘soft skills’ of confidence, resilience, self-motivation and organisation.

School description

We are unequivocally proud of being a small school and the benefits it offers to pupils. Our size creates a wonderfully unique family atmosphere, and it allows us to properly focus on the individual needs of each child at every stage of their education.  Indeed, teachers and pastoral staff meet every morning to discuss how to best support each pupil that day. “This is absolutely fundamental to our success as a school,” stresses Headmaster Alastair Speers, because “it allows us to ensure that no child slips under the radar and everyone is challenged on a daily basis.”
Pupils encounter an academically rich and rigorous education that goes far beyond preparing pupils to just pass entrance exams to the country’s leading senior schools. Pupils are encouraged to develop the qualities and skills they’ll need for life beyond their school days. We explicitly teach pupils to reason and think, and our challenging ‘Thinking Friday’ questions encourage them to form and express their own opinions. Sandroyd also inspires interests and develop talents - inside and beyond the classroom - from music, dance and drama, to a variety of sports (which pupils play every day).
