A limited number of academic scholarships are awarded to talented students for Sixth Form entry based on competitive assessments.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
The Stoke Approach to teaching and learning is both progressive and reflective: we understand young people think and learn differently, so by prioritising small classes, enhanced by our diploma programme, we inspire minds, offer individual attention and promote happiness, which in turn leads academic achievement and personal development.
Stoke College is a small, charming, family-feel school which offers a unique educational experience – it is a place where happy children thrive and achieve. Supporting each other, celebrating successes and achievements, diversity and differences, the Stoke College community of students, staff and parents, collectively aims to have a positive impact on all those around us.
