History

The Old Sandbachians Association has been in existence for more than 100 years, with references to the organisation in copies of the Sandbachian magazine from before the First World War. It has always been a means of staying in touch, networking and supporting Sandbach School.

In years gone by, many pupils of the school would stay local, establishing or working in family businesses or great industries synonymous with the history of Sandbach and surrounding area in the 20th century, like Foden’s, ERF, Roberts Bakery to name a few. Other old boys would travel further afield with careers in politics, the armed forces, sport and education.

In the 21st Century the OSA is still going strong and former pupils are even further afield. We have contacts in Australia, USA, the Middle East and Europe. We all share a great heritage of being a former pupil of one of the best schools in the country, and the OSA remains committed to supporting Sandbach School as the OSA has for over 100 years.
