About us

The Link @ Sandbach School is a body of people employed by the school to hire out the facilities. The money raised goes towards replacing equipment and enhancing the students learning environment. We offer facilities for sports and course/conferences.

Our Story

The Link form a commercial arm of the school, allowing organisations and members of the public to use the school facilities after hours and at weekends. The Link is non-profit and funnels all funds back into the school to provide better equipment and facilities for the students.

Our facilities include badminton courts, table tennis tables and tennis courts (from the spring). There is also a large sports hall which includes a full-size netball court. Our pool is used by a host of local competitive swim clubs as well as local swim academies teaching children how to swim.

The facilities also include a variety of studios and halls. Perfect for everything from keep fit, acting and dancing clubs, to business events, conferences and meetings.

If you are looking to host anything, from teaching a course to putting on a concert or play then get in touch as we may be able to help you.
