Sandon JMI is a small school with over 90 pupils. We are linked with Knights Templar School, in Baldock; and are part of the North Hertfordshire Sports Partnership Scheme. We have a team of dedicated staff, delightful pupils and supportive parents. The idyllic setting, which is in the middle of the village, has well equipped play areas, garden and wildlife sections, with fields beyond. We are a Forest School and these grounds provide the perfect setting for sessions. Everyone who visits the school agrees that it is a very special place.
