There is no staff room at Sands School – this added to the general ethos of the school encourages a very close relationship between staff and students. This applies to everyone who works at Sands; both teaching and non-teaching staff.
The staff at Sands come from a variety of professional backgrounds giving them a balanced and interesting set of skills and experiences. All the teaching staff are fully qualified to teach their subjects and were employed by the students for their teaching ability and social compatibility with the ethos of the school. All staff are free of strict teaching guidelines and so can provide an exciting and diverse education.

In addition to the permanent staff listed above details of any temporary or short term staff can be found on the school website.
Every couple of years Sands students are asked to complete a detailed survey gathering their views about each member of staff. This provides really valuable information about how well we are meeting their educational and social needs and helps to identify any areas that the students think could be improved.
