Our School

Sandy Hill Academy was built in 1972.  It is a one form entry primary Academy with its own Nursery unit. Sandy Hill became a founder member of the Aspire Academy Trust in 2011. Sandy Hill was graded Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2017.
The children are organised in eight class units, four Junior (Key Stage 2) and four Infant (Key Stage 1). If you have younger children and want them to attend this school in due course, please let us know as soon as you can and complete an admissions form.  Parents who wish to look around the school when considering sending their children here should arrange a convenient time to visit with the Head Teacher.

Our vision for Sandy Hill Academy is:
For it to be a centre of excellence for teaching and learning for all. We will aim to create an environment that is safe and that enhances and develops children’s desire to learn and to equip them for their future.
Sandy Hill will be a place where children’s individual needs and abilities will be recognised and nurtured, their successes acknowledged and celebrated.

To see Sandy Hill Academy as a place where children are happy, confident and secure in the knowledge that they are valued and listened to, where they can be excited and challenged in an environment that promotes learning at all levels.

To see Sandy Hill Academy at the centre of our community, accessible to all, and identified as a centre for exemplary Primary Practice.
