Our children are encouraged to try new things and our strong extra-curricular and enrichment programme teaches children leadership and teamwork skills as well as developing their talents.
We open as many doors as possible for all our pupils, coaxing even the most reluctant children to have a go. It is good to push forward the boundaries, whilst working within a safe and secure environment; this is how we grow as individuals. Our extensive programme includes:
Specialist music lessons and a variety of peripatetic instrumental teaching allow children to explore their own creativity from an early age and take part in regular concerts.
Performing Arts are a particular strength of our school, with several high-calibre productions throughout the year.
A wide programme of clubs, including chess, Mandarin and Ukulele, take place across the year, so there is something for everyone.
Trips form an important part of life at Stanfield and include academic day trips, visits to theatres and museums, as well as residential breaks including ski trips for the older pupils.
Visitors to school are organised termly for each year group support the delivery of a rounded curriculum.
Themed activity days enrich the curriculum and allow opportunities for the whole school to get involved.
Children are encouraged to pursue competitive sports from a young age and our junior teams regularly reach national finals in rugby, football, swimming and biathlon, playing against schools all over the country.
There are many other sports and activities on offer as part of our extensive programme, including tennis, badminton, basketball, golf, cross-country, as well as groups such as Eco Warriors and Podcasters.
