Stanwell was inspected in May 2015 and awarded the highest rating of Excellent for all key questions by ESTYN. Inspectors praised the school’s outstanding teaching and learning ethos and provision. The full report can be downloaded from our website: Estyn Report 2015.

We also achieve consistently excellent examination results. In 2015, 87% of pupils achieved 5 GCSE grades A*-C, inclusive of English and maths (Level 2+) with 96% achieving 5 or more A*-C GCSE grades. 92% achieved a C or above in English GCSE and 89% in maths. 87% of pupils achieved the core subject indicator (A*-C in English, maths and science). Results in the Sixth form are equally impressive, with A* to B grades (65% of entry), which increases to 71% of entry when the Welsh Bacc is included. Estyn states that “pupils performance in the Sixth Form is well above that seen in similar schools.”

Extensive extra-curricular opportunities are also provided, with music, drama and sport all flourishing at Stanwell.

We invite all prospective pupils and parents for Year 7 and Sixth form to visit our open day on Tuesday 6th October 3pm – 6pm to meet staff and pupils and take part in activities.
