Welcome to the Stanwix School website. We hope you find the information it contains both interesting and informative, and that it communicates the vibrant, happy learning experience that our school offers.

Stanwix is a large and successful school that has been helping to mould young Cumbrians into happy, healthy teenagers for almost 130 years. Recently we were recognised as ‘Good’ by OfSted. Our three year average attainment for English, Maths and Science place us comfortably in the top 10% of best performing schools in the whole of the UK.

Stanwix pupils benefit from an academic curriculum filled with interest for every child, matched with opportunities to develop the creative and social skills essential to become inspired young people. We aim to combine pleasure in learning with a traditional academic approach that instills an appreciation of the value of knowledge and a life-long love of learning that will provide a solid foundation for your child’s successful future through secondary school and into higher education and the adult world. Operating alongside the core subjects is an extensive programme of extra-curricular activities out of school hours that broadens horizons and develops personal interests.

We have regular parents’ evenings and open events when you can visit the school, my teachers and I are also happy to meet with parents and prospective parents and their children by arrangement. Please don’t hesitate to contact the school if you would like to make a visit or have any questions not covered by this prospectus.
