Sandhill View Academy is on the rise and it shows in our results. In the last four years, results have gone from 28% 5+ E&M to 53% basics L4. This year we plan to surpass national averages. Our improvement is about more than rising results. The school has transformed in the optimism of its staff and the aspirations of its students. We have particularly benefited from our close relationship with our trust partner and sponsor Southmoor Academy and an increasing proportion of our students attend The Southmoor Sixth Form. Being part of a larger organisation really gives us the ability to draw in special talent and offer more opportunities to those who join us.
The English team consist of 6 specialists who have mirrored the rising of whole school results. It’s a very supportive team, which places a strong emphasis on mutual support and collaboration. They look forward to welcoming a new colleague.
