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.
