The pastoral strength of Sandroyd comes into its own when supporting children of military families, especially when one or both parents are posted overseas. We have a number of Pastoral Staff who are from military families and indeed the Headmaster is from a military family!
Our experienced Houseparents have supported military children when their parents have been in danger zones, on extended exercise or simply moving house for the umpteenth time – their wellbeing is crucial and we provide the hugs, words of comfort and family support that is so essential.
Whilst we have a number of military families at the school, they form a small proportion of our community (between 8-10%), meaning that your children will have a wide circle of friends, not just those on the same “patch” as you!
Bursaries are available for military families, subject to means testing, in addition to the CEA allowance so that a Sandroyd education is affordable. If such assistance is required, please discuss this with the Headmaster when you visit.
