Supportive and Purposeful environment

To be part of The Stanway School, is to enable our students to develop mastery and confidence of their innate talents, enhance the skills needed for success in secondary school and future life, and encourage a curiosity and nurture thoughtfulness that will allow our students to act with humility and humanity long after they leave.

Encouraging curiosity and nurturing thoughtfulness

We recognise and celebrate success wherever it occurs: in the classroom; on the pitch;
in the studio; or in contributions to the wider community.

A community in which every student matters

Our outstanding staff encourage students to develop their own opinions and find
their own voice through a broad and balanced, exciting curriculum.

Stanway School

A thank you from us…

It seems a long time since students came back to school again on Monday 8th March. I have been encouraged by the way the students and staff have adjusted to life back at school, showing confidence and resilience that is making the school such a great place to be again.

I am pleased that cases of Covid-19 across the country are steadily reducing and the number of cases in Colchester is even lower each week. As we head towards the summer, this is encouraging to see.

This week, all schools we emailed from the Department for Education with a message of thanks and perseverance from our PM, in which he wrote:

“I want to thank everybody for continuing to follow the guidance, and to thank parents and families for the incredible work you’re doing to help test pupils through the Easter holidays and to encourage you to keep testing them twice a week as schools return.”

I would like to echo this message, and say a huge “Thank you” to each student and member of staff who have continued to take the Lateral Flow Tests twice a week. This is making the school a safer place to learn, teach and work in.

Thank you for your ongoing support

A Message from the Head Teacher

The Stanway School is a community in which every student matters.

Students respond to our high academic, cultural and sporting expectations. We recognise and celebrate success wherever it occurs: in the classroom; on the pitch; in the studio; or in contributions to the wider community. High expectations for behaviour, attendance and punctuality help our students make good progress and we endeavour to match our teaching to students’ individual needs, interests and aptitudes. All members of the school community are expected to strive to beat their previous best and take pride in their achievements.

Our outstanding staff encourage students to develop their own opinions and find their own voice through a broad and balanced, exciting curriculum. At the heart of our curriculum is a strong commitment to teaching modern British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and belief. Our young people develop informed opinions and are able to play a full part in their school community and are ready for their next stage of education, work or training. Everyone in our school community is valued.

The Stanway School is a trusted and respected member of the local community and works exceptionally hard to provide the very best start for our young people through outstanding teaching and the highest quality guidance and support.

This is a very exciting time as we open our new Creative Arts block; the latest phase of our £7 million expansion project. I hope that you will enjoy your time here and participate fully in all aspects of our school life and become a confident, curious and caring member of our Stanway School.

Mr Jonathan Bland

Headteacher
