The Stanway School is a very popular and successful secondary school, catering for 1400 students in Years 7-11. We are a community in which each and every student matters and every student is accountable to our community. Respect and good manners are important, good behaviour is expected as the norm and learning is productive in well taught lessons.

We want our students to feel comfortable at The Stanway School from their very first day. This is why we hold a Taster Day for prospective students from our feeder schools when they are in Year 6 and an Induction Day for all new students in July prior to their start in September. As a result, the transition from primary to secondary school runs very smoothly.

We hope that the information below helps you in deciding whether to chose the Stanway School for your child. If you would like to visit the school for a tour, please use the Contact Us section of our website for details.
