Sandgate School 

Sandgate School Logo

Sandgate is a special school for children and young people between the ages of three and nineteen years of age. Some children join the school at three years old, or just before. Most will join us at a later stage in their education, perhaps at reception class, or at the start of secondary education, after attending a primary school, or at any other point when parents and professionals feel that Sandgate would be the right place for their child. Older pupils, currently from year 10 (age 14) and above, are educated at our Sandgate at the Queen Katherine facility, at the Queen Katherine School on the Appleby Road in Kendal.

Our Vision:

We aim to affirm the right to an outstanding education for every individual and to ensure that right for all, regardless of individual differences, and for students to:

  • Become motivated life-long learners, achieving the highest standard of which they are capable relating to functional life skills, qualifications and quality of life.
  • Have high self-esteem, respecting themselves, others and the environment.
  • Gain technological skills which improve independent learning.
  • Seek to extend themselves in mind, body and spirit.

All pupils attending the school have a statement of special educational need, which describes their needs as being severe, or profound, multiple or complex. Cumbria Local Authority is the admissions body for the school, in consultation with the governors and Senior Leadership Team.
