Welcome to our Secondary area of the website. Our committed and passionate team of specialist staff strive to deliver excellent teaching and learning for all our students across our broad curriculum offer. Our secondary specialism in Business & Enterprise and the all-through specialism in Performing Arts very much support this aim and, along with our Church of England ethos, feature prominently in lessons and other aspects of school life.
In Years 7 and 8, our rigorous system of Pastoral & Academic Mentoring (PAM) coupled with our full transition programme, overseen by Heads of Year and the pastoral team, helps to smooth the often daunting move from primary to secondary. Ongoing monitoring, mentoring and tracking ensures that students make excellent social and academic progress to prepare them for the next stage of their educational journey.
Our Stamford Raffles Campus is where students from Years 9 and above are able to benefit from a range of modern facilities in our recently fully renovated building, and in our new teaching block. This includes state of the art science labs, technology rooms, a large assembly hall, a dedicated sports hall, a dance studio, as well as well-equipped classrooms. Our talented and passionate staff strive to ensure that the quality of teaching and learning, across all subjects, is outstanding. We continue to be committed to a broad and balanced curriculum.
During their time at Stamford Raffles we will continue to ensure that students develop the skills and the knowledge they need for further education and training, as well as the world of work – skills such as confidence, resilience, independence and maturity. Our staff will provide them with opportunities to explore different pathways, such as University, Apprenticeships or training, through independent Career Advice, as well as work related learning. Our Christian ethos features prominently throughout the campus and in all aspects of school life.
Our rigorous system of Pastoral & Academic Mentoring continues at our Stamford Raffles Campus and is overseen by our Heads of Key Stage 4 and 5 together with the pastoral team. This provides students with the support they need as they develop and learn to manage the challenges that they face as young adults. Ongoing monitoring, mentoring and tracking ensure that students make excellent social and academic progress to prepare them for the next stage of their journey.
Our students continue to learn, develop and practice our core values of Wisdom, Service and Hope alongside the other Christian values including those of friendship, compassion, respect, tolerance, forgiveness, thankfulness, perseverance and humility. All values which underpin our ethos and vision. There are many opportunities for peer support and mentoring, in addition to leadership opportunities. Our school-within-a-school model continues to offers the truly personalised educational environment that genuinely nurtures, inspires and allows young people to excel both now and in their futures.
