No doubt that the main focus of this very busy week has been the completion of UCAS applications. Students, form tutors, subject teachers and Mrs Gilligan have been working hard together to make sure the applications are first class.  I have to say, reading and writing references is, once again, a real pleasure.  Some students [...]

A superb week that started and finished with rather special events. The week got off to a fabulous start with our current Year 12 students returning to main school to collect their richly deserved certificates and awards during their GCSE presentation evening.  A lovely evening, full of smiles, celebrations and plenty of pride. The week ended [...]

The summer weather may be frustrating but there is plenty of summer spirit around College at the moment.   This week saw our College students playing an integral part in two fantastic evening events.  Firstly the Summer Music Concert - performances by our super talented Year 12 and 13 students left me speechless.  From Jonathan Vu and Caitlin [...]

Lots to feel very proud about for us here at Sandbach College this week.  Three of our students made it through to the Teen Tech Finals.

By far the highlight of last week was the appearance of our Yr 12 Economics Students on BBC Northwest being interviewed about their views and opinions on the EU referendum and how being 'in' or 'out' is likely to impact on young people. Thank you to Mr Shaw who was very determined to make sure the youth [...]
