Stanborough is a co-educational Independent Christian School, unique in its diverse pupil intake and personalised approach to teaching. We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, catered to meet the needs of students from all backgrounds, including disadvantaged students and those with Specific Educational Needs. Many of our students arrive at Stanborough school below national expectation and leave having made excellent progress - allowing for excellent GCSE results.

Academic rigour is foundational for us at Stanborough. However, we are passionate about far more than this. We enjoy seeing young people understand their value, learn to honour and encourage others and contribute to the wider school community. Parents who choose to send their children to Stanborough recognise the school’s commitment to academic excellence, and value the school’s belief in intelligent moral values, and its outstanding pastoral care. They appreciate the school’s family atmosphere, and the wealth that lies in its happy and well-balanced pupils.

Small classes and excellent pastoral care enable us to challenge and support each individual in their learning and in building good interpersonal skills. Our values of Excellence, Respect, Courage and Resilience enables young people to grow in confidence and their appreciation of each other.

Our philosophy, epitomised in our motto (God is the Master of our School), has shaped many generations of families educated at Stanborough since 1919. The school’s Christian roots make it welcoming to pupils of all faiths and backgrounds, from every corner of the world. Past students have followed a variety of distinguished careers in Business, Education, Law, Medicine and Theology.

Located in over 40 acres of beautiful parkland and only 30 minutes from London, the school provides an ideal setting for learning.

This website will give you a glimpse of the education, opportunities and challenges that the school can offer your child. Please do explore it thoroughly and I hope it will whet the appetite for a visit during which, I’m sure, you’ll gain a real sense of the energy, the happiness and the engagement in learning of our children. I’m also confident you will see why we are so proud of its location, the heritage, facilities and staff of the school, but most of all, the children who define us and are the school’s heartbeat.
