Employer Details

Sandown Bay Academy

An AET Academy

Sandown Bay Academy attracts students from the bay area, its coastal towns and from across the island. The Academies Enterprise Trust is seeking to provide the highest standards of education at Sandown Bay Academy for each and every student from Year 7 to Year 13.

Sandown Bay Academy is part of the expanding national network of AET Academies and yet is also keen to retain its close working links with other island providers, local employers and the broadest range of community organisations.

In establishing the Academy, we followed a careful timeline; reviewing practice, exploring different approaches to curriculum and maximising the potential of additional resources; all with a clear focus on the progress learners need to make to bring about significant improvements. As we develop, we are committed to address the questions of students and their parents and to promote training for teachers and support staff as they extend their expertise across all years.

We want to meet the needs of our students and work closely with their parents and carers in order to ensure they are challenged and supported to meet their potential. The Academys size, its location and its sports specialism, provide a wider range of opportunities and choices.

We want visitors to continue to comment on the good behaviour and excellent relationships across the site, which these students demonstrate.
