Wednesday was the first of three induction days for our new year 7 students. It’s been great to see how keen the students have been to try all of the activities in each lesson, all the while learning their way around the school. The year 10 buddies have been brilliant at helping them along and assisting in lessons too.
We look forward to the students arriving for good in September!
On a very hot day a group of year 9 students travelled to the South of England Showground in Ardingly to participate in the South East heats of National Science and Engineering Competition (NSEC). Each of the students had worked all year on a space-based project and had to display their work to thousands of visitors at the Big Bang Fair.
It was a highly successful day for the Sackville students, with Ellie, Jenny, Beth and Izzy winning the SEPNet prize for physics and Nick winning no fewer than four awards. Tristan’s work was also especially commended by a judge.
You can read the full account in the next edition of Sackville News!

We have just received from Oxford Analytics the analysis of the 2014 A level results, and we are delighted to say that they confirm that Sackville is the place to come for A level and BTEC studies.
The progress our students make is compared with other schools in West Sussex and with our group of local schools (Crawley, East Grinstead, south Surrey, Tunbridge Wells and Uckfield). Our mathematics, physics, PE, religious studies and travel results are the best in West Sussex (that’s compared to all schools and sixth form colleges). A number of other subjects were second or third best in the county. For PE, our results were 22nd in the whole country!
In our local schools, our performance was best in art, textiles, PE, maths and religious studies, and second in physics, geography and sociology.
Sackville – the natural choice for sixth form study.
