Sandwich Secondary has one of the best track and field complexes in southwestern Ontario. Officially named the Robert C. Carrick Memorial Track, it opened in 1993 at a cost of $1.70 million and includes an 8-lane rubberized all weather track, field house, grandstand, football and soccer field, baseball diamond, track and field event area (shot-put, a discus circle, all weather javelin approach, all weather runways for long jump, triple jump, pole vault), and a concession stand. The complex was named after a police officer who was killed in the line of duty in 1968 and is home to the Sandwich Sabres Men's Football team, which is consistently ranked among the top programs in the province. Sandwich Secondary also has an French immersion program for those coming from French immersion grade schools along with an English public schooling.

Its feeder schools, or family of elementary schools, are Sandwich West Public School, LaSalle Public School, Sacred Heart Roman Catholic School, Prince Andrew Public School, Giles Campus and École Bellewood Public School.[2]
