Sandon Twitchers!Jack O’Dell is a member of the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) and visited Sandon recently to talk to the students during an assembly about the RSPB and the work they do with birds.
This assembly was very important as it links to our journey towards our Green Flag Eco Award.
Jack O’Dell, from Grantham’s Fairtrade Committee, came into Sandon School during Lower and Upper School assembly recently, to talk to the students about the school’s Fairtrade work they’ve been doing.
During Fairtrade fortnight, both Sandon and Ambergate Schools worked together to make a Fairtrade recipe booklet and each class submitted a Fairtrade recipe.
Free day out for GANF pupils!
Thanks to The Rotary Club of Grantham, pupils from Beech, Oak & Wembley class enjoyed a fantastic day at Wicksteed Park!
The sun was shining and on arrival to the park we headed straight to the miniature railway. The train ride took us all around the park, the pupils could see all the rides and discussed which ones they wanted to try.
Ambergate Lower School participated in a Dinosaurs & Explorers Day this month. Pupils engaged in a carousel of activities including dinosaur maths, making a dinosaur mask, a dinosaur hunt, making fossils and engaging in an archaeological dig for bones!
During the afternoon, we welcomed Teach Rex, an animatronic dinosaur! Rex came into school for the pupils to engage with and they learned all about the history of dinosaurs, their anatomy and different types of dinosaurs.

Outdoor Classroom Day at GANF
To celebrate Outdoor Classroom Day, GANF wanted to provide every pupil with the chance of an outdoor experience. At GANF Schools we strive to provide outdoor experiences known as 'Enrichment', which help to provide our pupils with a well-balanced curriculum.
What is Outdoor Learning?
Sandon Coffee Shop Success
You are probably aware that students from Sandon School 6th Form (Hospitality Pathways) run a Coffee Shop in Grantham. During this academic year, the Tasty Treats Coffee Shop have updated their menu so they were able to offer something new to their customers.
The drinks menu has been expanded and now offers hot chocolate as well as tea, coffee and juice.
Sandon School has been selected as an outstanding provider of care and support to children.
Caring2Learn is an innovative research project aiming to improve outcomes for Looked After Children (LAC) and young people across the county. The study is about supporting LAC and particularly children in care, to learn in school through developing ‘caring schools’.
Sandon pupils delighted as their chicks hatch!
Sandon School pupils have been learning about the life cycle of hens and following the receipt of funding from the Edina Trust, they were thrilled with the arrival of an incubator and six eggs.
Staff and pupils took delivery of the batch of eggs from Rand Farm in Market Rasen last month, in the hope that pupils would see chicks emerging from their shells first-hand.
