Stamford Endowed Schools

Stamford, Lincolnshire

Our schools are uniquely structured to provide tailored and personalised education at every level. Boys and girls are taught together at junior school, separately at senior school and together again in the sixth form – the Diamond Structure. Teaching and learning are at the heart of the Stamford Endowed Schools. We aim to equip our pupils with the qualifications and skills needed to unlock all of life’s possibilities. Highly motivated students, dedicated teachers and small class sizes ensure the Schools consistently achieve strong exam results at both GCSE and A-level, with the overwhelming majority of leavers going onto their first choice university. By making education enjoyable, exciting and inspirational, a true love of learning is fostered, which will stand pupils in good stead for the rest of their lives.

Our pupils are our finest ambassadors – the Good Schools Guide described them as the most ‘open, articulate and warm’ pupils they had ever encountered. Through their experiences at the Schools, our pupils perceive no obstacle to be insurmountable and will exceed expectations in whatever they do. The Schools are socially inclusive, and have a long and proud tradition of attracting pupils from all backgrounds, through scholarships and bursaries. The academic ethos is complimented by an extensive extra-curricular programme which allows pupils to explore and develop their interests in sport, music, drama and leadership activities.
