At Stanchester Academy we are passionate about the potential of all our students, and in providing a curriculum which encourages them to be ambitious about their future.

Our academic curriculum is designed to produce a structured and carefully sequenced pathway enabling students to gain the knowledge and skills of a broad range of subjects. We recognise the impact that outstanding teaching and learning has and therefore focus on research informed practices in our lessons.

As a school in a rural area, we are enthusiastic about providing opportunities and experiences for our students.  As such we offer many extracurricular clubs, trips both nationally and internationally, and numerous workshops with external subject specialists.

Alongside our academic curriculum, we strongly believe in the importance of character education and offer a wide enrichment programme that enables our students to grow their cultural capital whilst with us.
