From the Headteacher:
We are proud of our students and what they achieve both in and out of school.
We enjoy an unrivalled setting with modern facilities which are being constantly updated. Beyond the bricks and mortar though, our innovative approach to curriculum design and partnership working enables us to offer diverse and tailored learning for all year groups.
Outside the classroom, the dedication and commitment of staff supports an unparalleled range of extra-curricular activities. Every Wednesday, our formal timetable ends at 2.00pm and this provides a unique opportunity for many students to broaden their outlook and develop new skills and talents. Present options include: Art, Drama, Life-style Cookery, Photography/Film Making, French, Textiles, Homework Club and a variety of Sports.
In return, we expect the best from all students. The school motto is Tene Virtutem (keep hold of that which is good) and great emphasis is placed on the core values of rights, responsibilities and respect. We apply these core values to all aspects of school life: from courteous and respectful behaviour around the site, to purposeful and responsible attitudes both to study and to each other. In addition, students are encouraged to demonstrate a genuine understanding of the local, national and international community.
Above all, we want students to embrace the opportunities available at Stowupland. We want them to enjoy the challenge of learning and to be excited by the choices that educational achievement can bring.
The experiences we provide at Stowupland prepare all students for highly successful and fulfilling lives in an increasingly complex world. I thoroughly enjoy leading the school and hope that you will share my enthusiasm for our work and will want to be part of it.
I look forward to welcoming you to Stowupland.
