The Sandbrook Journey

Sandbrook CPS celebrated its eight birthday this September. It is an amalgamation of two former, low performing, local primary schools, Queensway CPS and Hill Top CPS (which was used to film the TV drama ‘Waterloo Road’). It came together because of a declining number of pupils in the Kirkholt area of Rochdale, an area of high deprivation. I was appointed the Headteacher designate in April 2005 and the school opened as Sandbrook in the September. During the five months I had to prepare for the school’s opening, I observed both schools in action and looked at what both schools were achieving.
