Book for our Discovery Mornings

Discovery Mornings are a chance to explore the Schools on a normal working day.

You and your family will tour the School in the company of one of our pupils and will meet the Principal and senior team over tea and coffee.

Junior School (Reception – Year 6):
Wednesday 15 May 8.45am – 10am

Senior School (Year 7 – Year 11):
Wednesday 15 May 10am – 11.30am

Spaces at a Discovery Morning are limited so that you can have as much time as you need to see the School at your own pace and discuss your child as an individual.

Natural Spaces Around Us

The Grounds Team are looking to spread their knowledge of how important nature is, and wanted to showcase what the Schools are doing to support wildlife.

Looking after the grounds at Stamford goes beyond maintaining classic stripy lawns, cricket pitches and our 60 acres of sports fields. The Grounds Teams continue to work to support nature and improve the range of opportunities for wildlife to thrive around the sites; and it’s time to celebrate our mini nature reserves.

There isn’t much Bob Carder (Head of Grounds) does not know about sports pitches. He and his team are responsible for some of the most striking parts of the Schools, year in, year out. But what most people do not know about Bob, is that he has a huge amount of knowledge and interest in nature.

Richard Taylor (Gardens Supervisor) has a great passion for wildlife and nature, as well as a great deal of knowledge about which plants are of most benefit to the natural world around us, leading to many of the beds around the Schools being replanted, with more useful plants for wildlife.

Many different bird boxes have been set up around the Schools, including an owl box at Stamford Junior School. In addition there are bat boxes and solitary bee houses, as well. Log piles have been created in the outdoor area at SJS and mounds have been created in the site behind the old swimming pool to provide a habitat for mammals and other creatures.

Whilst not every part of the Schools can be a permanent home for nature, allowing certain areas to grow up for certain periods of the year can be extremely beneficial. For example, the Grounds Team may deliberately not mow a bank for a few months in the summer to allow the flowers to come through and provide habitats for insects, which in turn provides food for birds. Equally, the gardeners may leave some of the plants in a border standing over the winter, so that insects can shelter in the hollow stems. They will then be trimmed back in the spring as the new growth arrives.
