Sandringham is a highly popular and oversubscribed school with an excellent reputation both locally and nationally. Over the past years we have been graded Outstanding by Ofsted at every visit to the school. We have been in the 100 top performing non-selective state schools in England for the past 6 years, and are one of the first to gain 'World Class Schools' status. Each year our examination results demonstrate high performance at all levels. Our value added is very high placing the school in the top percentile rankings of all schools nationally. Saying this, there is still plenty of room for improvement and we are working hard to continue to raise standards wherever possible. We support all areas of the curriculum and, in addition, have a strong focus on STEM subjects and the Arts. We also hold International School status and encourage work on an international basis.

Sandringham School is a member of the Alban Academies Trust, together with Verulam School, Ridgeway Academy, Wheatfield’s Junior School and Wheatfield’s Infants’ and Nursery School. We work in a multi-academy trust to share best practice, deliver joint training, promote the highest of expectations and raise achievement for all students. Our motto is ‘Educational Excellence for Everyone’. The trust offers significant opportunities for career development of staff at all levels within our organisation.

Sandringham also co-ordinates the Alban Federation which is a School Centred Initial Teacher Training Provider. As part of the AAT we offer an enhanced induction programme for all our NQTS.  This programme begins at the beginning of July with our 3 week summer induction programme, which attracts an attendance payment of £2,000 and a contract on the main pay scale from 1st September.  Support is provided by subject and senior leader mentors and we offer subject specific as well as general training through ATSA and Herts for Learning events. Please see the attached document for further information. We are also a National Teaching School and run the Alban Teaching School Alliance with Sir John Lawes School in Harpenden and STAGS in St Albans, offering significant CPD opportunities for staff across a large number of schools. All our teaching staff are provided with a laptop and iPad and as our own admitting authority our admissions criteria now includes a children of staff rule.

We deliver a blended learning environment with every student able to use their own tablet device in the classroom. One of our most important and well-established networks is the BeauSandVer Consortium that provides high-quality post-16 education across Beaumont, Sandringham and Verulam Schools. We are an eight form entry school with 1482 students including over 380 in the Sixth Form.

We take every opportunity to develop the campus and are proud of the resources and facilities available to all the young people and staff at Sandringham and have invested over £10m in recent developments.

Staff morale at Sandringham is very high, shored up by an excellent working environment. Central to everything that happens at Sandringham are its students.
