Life at Sancton Wood, Cambridge

Sancton Wood aims to make an outstanding contribution to the social, emotional and academic development of each child. The school has a reputation for instilling good manners, reliability and self-discipline into every child that comes through its doors in Cambridge.

We have small class sizes across the school and this excellent pupil: teacher ratio is a key to the educational philosophy that focuses on the provision of a tailored educational programme for each pupil.  The staff chosen to work at the school are all highly qualified and committed teachers, who endeavor to make each pupil aware of his or her innate qualities and skills, and to develop these to full capacity.  The school is also known for its excellent academic results.

This is reflected in our regular position at the top of the league tables for GCSEs for Cambridgeshire and our 100% GCSE pass rate. We are regularly placed in The Times Top 100 Schools and recently placed top of an ISA table of points per pupil. The Sunday times featured us in their ‘Parent Power’ list of top independent schools. In 2018 a Head Boy achieved an exceptional haul of 10 Grade 9 GCSEs, evidence of the wonderful educational provision at the school.
