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
