After missing out for so long, get ready for a Stoke College summer events calendar like no other! From Monday 21st June – the date national restrictions in England are expected to be lifted at last – we have an action-packed series of most fortunate events for students’ and parents’ enjoyment.
Monday 21st – Wednesday 23rd June will be our annual Arts Festival, back with a bang and better than ever. With a ticketed event each evening, we will be showcasing the creative talents of our own students and those from the local area: Monday evening, Art and Photography Exhibition; Tuesday evening, Music Concert; Wednesday evening, the annual highlight Gala Concert.
Thursday 24th – Friday 25th June our Sports Festival, with Thursday seeing all students participate in a carousel of wide-ranging sporting activities and Friday being the traditional Sports Day. Parents and families are most welcome to join us for a late morning/early afternoon sports extravaganza, with mums’, dads’, siblings’ and grandparents’ races all scheduled in! What a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a picnic in the grounds before heading off early to beat the traffic on your way to your first weekend of full freedom for over a year.
Wednesday 30th June will see our first full-scale black tie event in the grounds of the College, for students in Years 11-13, parents and staff. With catering laid on and a bar for adults, come and celebrate the end of a most remarkable 18 months. Ticketing information will follow shortly but you are guaranteed an event with a sparkle.
Finally, following a sympathetic late start after the evening before, Thursday 1st July will see the return of the Stoke Summer Stomp, a family-friendly orienteering event culminating in one last social gathering for the year. We know how popular this was last year and we are looking forward to repeating it again, with different walking routes, of course.
Further details will follow shortly after the Easter break for all events – keep your eyes on your emails and our social media feeds for more.
