Welcome to Sands School, Ashburton; The alternative face of education...

What ‘Sands’ is All About!

No uniform, no bells, no silly, petty rules: freedom to be yourself, go at your own pace and make your own choices.

Democratic Education?

Everyone has an equal say - students and staff decide things together.

And it really works!
