What the Good Schools Guide says..
Completely non-selective. Looks and feels like a slightly run-down country house: gracious panelled hall and head’s office soon give way to unfortunate, though doubtless durable, red lino corridors, along which purposeful girls scurry, sometimes in regulation navy jodhpurs and fleeces......
What the school says...
A British school with a global perspective, Stonar, near Bath is currently for girls 2-18 and boys 2-11. From September 2016, boys will be admitted into Year 7 and coeducation will be extended through the Senior School. Stonar is also the UK's leading equestrian school with a renowned Equestrian Centre and training philosophy.
As a current parent says: 'We don't think of Stonar in terms of girls and boys, rather as an engaging and nurturing environment in which any child is encouraged to be the best they can be; that's why our son will continue into the Senior School'.
Bringing out the best in each individual child by developing their confidence and learning to value others lies at the heart of Stonars ethos. Our pupils regularly achieve above their expectations both academically and personally. The school's uniqueness is exemplified in the 'can-do' attitude of every pupil. Whatever the question or challenge, each and every girl or boy will have a go. Our pupils do more, and do better, than they ever thought possible. We are known for adding value in academic achievement. ...Read more
