What the school says...
A British school with a global perspective, Stonar develops the talents of every pupil through small class sizes, excellent teaching, high expectations, individual support and an exceptionally wide range of opportunities. Our pupils are active, ambitious and energetic – they pack a huge amount in to their busy days. With a well-established culture of care and attention to the individual, Stonar pupils do more, and do better, than they ever thought possible.
We excel at ‘adding value’ to a child’s education, which means pupils generally score up to one grade higher than predicted at GCSE. This puts Stonar in the top 10% of schools throughout the UK in terms of pupils’ academic progress. Those who respond to Stonar’s thoughtful and personal approach know they are doing better than they would at five out of six other independent schools.
Pupils’ achievements shine in many areas – academic, riding and sports, performing and visual arts, community spirit. Our pupils become accomplished in tackling challenges, team working, leadership, building strong relationships and move on to achieve success and fulfilment in a huge range of university courses and careers. As part of NACE Schools, Stonar has international partner schools with whom we collaborate to offer a unique educational experience, including academic projects, exchanges and joint music, drama and sporting festivals.
Set in 80 acres of stunning parkland and gardens, excellent sport and arts facilities include an indoor pool, floodlit AstroTurf, tennis courts, sports hall, fitness suite, dedicated music school and drama hall. A superb Sixth Form and Arts Centre comprises a social centre, seminar room, study centre and art studios. Stonar’s renowned Equestrian Centre offers pupils the chance to ride, whatever their level of expertise, and has stabling for up to 70 horses. ...Read more
