Welcome to Stoke College

Children here are busy and happy and they become confident in everything they do. They look forward to coming to school where learning is fun and everyone is valued. Each and every child in the school has a personal learning plan, helping to ensure that their individual talents are nurtured and that they are supported in a manner that reflects their own learning style.
The school is refreshingly down-to-earth, the culture is non elitist and unpretentious and the school is the school of choice for families seeking the benefits and privileges of an independent education – but an education with a difference!

At Stoke the end goal is to help produce self-confident, successful and capable young people.  An 'Old Stokesian' will also have a broad mind, a respect for others, a desire to make a positive contribution in all aspects of life, and a clear appreciation of the value of happy schooldays.

"The overall academic and extra-curricular achievement of all pupils is excellent."
"The personal development of pupils is outstanding. They are well mannered, respectful of others and tolerant of difference." Independent Schools Inspectorate, 2012
