Dear Friends of Stoke College,
It has been lovely to see our students outside enjoying the beautiful grounds which are looking splendid in their autumnal colours. Amid all the stress and anxiety of our current national and international situation, it is worth just stopping to take in this natural beauty, for we are very fortunate.
Last week I spoke to 45 agents who represent families from around the world, seeking a boarding school in the UK for their child’s education. It was lovely to share information with them about the Mark Wang Sixth Form Scholarships, our new Stoke College Sixth Form Sixth Form Diploma in Global Competencies, and building plans for the future. These we hope to be able to share with you in detail in the near future.
Conscious of the fact that Christmas is fast approaching, we shall shortly send you links to join us for our Christmas Carol Service, Public Examinations’ Presentation of Certificates and, of course, the PTA Auction of Promises. I have had a preview of said promises, and by golly, there are some fantastic offerings for which to bid!
I hope you enjoy this E-Newsletter, full of fun, learning and positive energy.
Dr Gareth Lloyd
