Headteacher's Welcome

Stanwell School

Welcome to our website. Here at Stanwell we are very proud of the way in which staff, students and parents work together to create an atmosphere of purposeful learning. We promote the value of a disciplined environment and believe that this is a strong foundation for the successful running of our school. It is clear that we are succeeding in our aims, as proven by our outstanding examination results and inspection reports.

Stanwell pupils are offered a wealth of extra-curricular activities which are in evidence throughout our website. We are also proud of the way in which our students take the opportunities offered to them and benefit from their participation in subject-based trips and activities.

We look forward to meeting you at Open Days, Parents' Evenings and other events held throughout the school year.

Derek Jones, Headteacher.
