Principal’s Message


Sanderson Middle School takes pride in offering a student focused Middle Years program that aims to develop the whole child and best prepare students for their senior years of schooling. Our experienced and dedicated staff design programs tailored to meet the needs of students and engage them to continually extend their academic growth.

We are a school community based on the core values of Respect, Compassion, Fair Go and Integrity. Our values are embedded in all aspects of school life. Trained in trauma informed practice, our staff strive to ensure students are taught the social and emotional skills necessary to understand and regulate their emotions, while developing the empathy to be considerate of others. All students deserve the best from us, and we are passionate about helping them to develop socially, emotionally and academically.

As a school community, we aim to build strong relationships with parents/ carers and the surrounding community. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students are supported on site by the Clontarf Academy and the Stars Foundation. The Smith Family have a partnership with our school, and we are always looking to build partnerships to best support our students.

The Sanderson Middle School team of educators works diligently to maintain a safe, positive and happy environment for our students to thrive in.

We are all looking forward to a Sandsational year ahead.

Mr Robert McIntosh
