Senior School 11-16yrs
A dynamic, vibrant, modern and exciting school,
built on the strengths of five centuries of learning.
"Stamford strives to offer an outstanding, contemporary education in which students develop the ability to think for themselves and to interpret the world around them."
Head of Senior School
At Stamford we have been educating students since 1532.
Academically, our focus is on thinking and communicating creatively, and collaborating with others to solve complex problems.
Teamwork is at the heart of all we do, encouraging students to bring out the best in others and allowing every single student to thrive in our kind, inclusive and welcoming community.
In our modern teaching spaces, our students learn in an environment designed to develop and further their intellectual curiosity, as well as their practical and social development.
We want our students to be determined, hard-working and eager to get involved with everything we offer. We enable them to grasp each and every opportunity, and to be the very best they can be both in and out of the classroom.
Within a sound framework of pastoral care and continuous development, Stamfordians are filled with the skills and confidence to face the future as rounded and grounded young adults.
At Stamford we give every student opportunities to thrive; and while our Schools have a long and prestigious heritage, everything we do now is focused on preparing young people to lead happy and fulfilling lives in the 21st Century.
Every student at Stamford, from Nursery through to Sixth Form, is encouraged to be an independent thinker and to have the opportunity to thrive, to help them become the best version of themselves.
There is an extensive range of co-curricular activities, from CCF and debating, to photography and cooking, which promote a love of learning beyond the academic programme.
We are proud of our School's strong links to the local community, with our buildings threading through the town of Stamford, whilst also retaining 60 acres of beautiful grounds including Astroturf pitches, cricket nets, netball courts, rugby pitches, two swimming pools and specifically tailored outdoor learning facilities.
Located in the town centre, and containing the oldest part of Stamford School, the Chapel, St Paul's contains a swimming pool, rugby, netball and hockey pitches and tennis courts, as well as state-of-the-art teaching facilities.
The range of subjects we offer allows each individual to play to their strengths. Lessons are engaging, and challenging to “stretch” and inspire students.
