What the school says...

Stoke College is a Suffolk based independent day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 11-18. Set in tranquil parkland overlooking the River Stour, the school is within easy reach of Cambridge, Bury St. Edmunds, Colchester, Braintree and Saffron Walden, and provides a forward thinking and holistic education.
Steeped in history, Stoke College was originally founded in 1415 as a scholarly institution for priests. Today, students walk the medieval flagstones to their lessons following a modern curriculum that embraces the best of British tradition balanced by an internationally minded and creative approach. They thrive in a setting encircled by the longest Tudor wall in England, enjoying grounds that boast an equally ancient dovecot, a ‘Secret Garden’, an outdoor swimming pool, croquet lawn, orchard, woodland, and a river teeming with fish and water fowl.
Offering a high quality, affordable education, Stoke is academically ambitious yet retains a strong family feel and the ability to focus on each child, ensuring excellent progress. Through a wide range of shared activities, both inside and outside the classroom, children are able to develop their communication skills and nurture empathy between each other. Stoke is a charming school where happy children thrive and achieve.

Special Education Needs

At Stoke College, the LDC works with pupils who have a learning difficulty/disability. The pupils attending LDC have a range of specific learning difficulties and disabilities including: dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, ADD, ADHD, global developmental delay, pervasive developmental disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome and autism. The LDC staff believe that a specific learning difficulty or learning disability is a problem that can be dealt with providing effective strategies are used. Pupils are taught in a sympathetic way and are encouraged to discuss their fears and difficulties so that ways of resolving them can be found. The department encourages all staff to acknowledge effort as well as achievement in academic and non-academic areas of school life, so that the pupils’ strengths are recognised, celebrated and built upon.
