School Information


Sandy Bay Infant School caters for students from 4 to 8 years of age (Kindergarten to Year 2).  We have a dedicated and enthusiastic staff, who inspire our students to become engaged lifelong learners, creative problem solvers and respectful citizens.  Our school is located on the shores of the Derwent River in Sandy Bay.  We are fondly referred to by the local community as the ‘Small School by the Sea’.

We have a close partnership with Lipscombe Community Childcare who share our site and work with us to provide exceptional before and after school care (Monday – Friday 7:45am – 6pm).


Our students have a guaranteed transition pathway to Waimea Heights Primary School for their primary schooling (Years 3 -6) and we work in strong partnership to ensure our curriculum is aligned and this is a smooth and positive journey for them. 


Please see our Information Booklet for Families for more information about our school. This booklet is updated annually to provide the most relevant information to both new and returning families.

We feel blessed to have our children at such a supportive school with a strong sense of community. Our children feel safe and confident to express and grow.

Sandy Bay Infant School exceeded our expectations in every way for four years in a row.

The teachers, staff and principal of Sandy Bay Infant School go above and beyond in everything that they do, and always with a genuine smile.
