Our view

Deliberately small and deliciously rural, Sandroyd attracts outdoorsy types looking for the full traditional-prep-school experience. Hold the glitz; here, it’s all about fresh air, building dens, riding ponies and producing happy, spirited children. They score full marks on the academic side, too.

    Sandroyd offers financial assistance to families who would otherwise be unable to take up offers of places. These awards are means tested and subject to a full financial history and annual review. They also offer fee assistance for the sons and daughters of servicemen and women killed or wounded on operations. In the occasion of a successful application, the child will be invited to the School for assessment and interview, after which the decision to award assistance is made by the School.
