Something I Like About Stanborough

On Friday 18th of March the Year 7 students took assembly. They delighted us by recounting what they liked about Stanborough. We were so touched, we wanted to share their speeches with you…


I like Stanborough School because the staff always take care of us and are always concerned that things are going well and that we are feeling happy. All the teachers help us with our homework and make sure that we understand it.

My favourite subjects are: History, Biology, and Spanish.

I like Biology, because I enjoy studying about the human body, plants and these types of things.  I like History because I like to study about the past and about our history.  I really like Spanish because I like to learn other languages.  Stanborough is a great place to learn.


My three favourite teachers at Stanborough School are: Mrs Hussey, Mr Poddar, Senior and Mrs Anderson.

I like Mrs Anderson because she is, most of the time, in a good mood, she gives us fun activities, she encourages us to do our best and when you need help, you can talk to her.

I like Mrs Hussey because she encourages you at any time, and when you need help she is always there for you.

I like Mr Poddar Senior because he, most of the time in a good mood as well, and always encourages you to do your best.


The things I really like about Stanborough include some of the classes like PE, French, Music, KAZ (touch typing) and Chemistry. The motto of our school is ‘dominus magister ludi nostri’ which we all know the meaning. This school has helped me to learn new skills that I didn’t know before. When I first came here, I thought it would be like any other high school, but it wasn’t. Most people here are so nice and accept people’s backgrounds etc. Another thing that I really like about this school is the homework – it is fun and not boring whatsoever.


I came to Stanborough School because according to the website, it is a private school and a great place to help students increase in both education and faith. In my own opinion, they were not wrong because I have experienced this in every subject.

In the past seven months of attending Stanborough, I have displayed my intelligence best in three subjects which are French, Biology and English. The teachers also encourage me to always reach the highest level I can achieve and, although they can be very strict at times, they are all very good teachers in spirit and encouragement.


I have a few things interesting to say about Stanborough. One of them is the subjects I like – ICT, Religious Education, Citizenship, Art and Music because they are very easy subjects and I’m good at them. Another thing I like about Stanborough is the friends and some of the clubs after school. When you are bored and have nothing to do, your friends become handy and when your friends have gone home and your parents are not going to pick you up as soon as school ends after school clubs are really useful. That‘s what I like about Stanborough.


Hello everyone! You may not know this but I really like experiments. At Stanborough I find discovering new things really interesting. Another thing I like about the School is that there is a large field for you to play football. My favourite sports are football, table tennis, tennis and basketball. It’s very kind of the school to provide a basketball.  Also, if two different groups want to play basketball there are two rings for them to play which is a real advantage. I like that when there is a problem you can talk to your Form tutor at any time.


Ever since I first came to Stanborough I’ve enjoyed PE.  I like PE because it isn’t a lesson. It is a fun part of the day. I am an active person and PE lets me let out all the energy that I have. In any class I feel the need to stand up because all I’m doing is sitting down but in PE I’m always doing something actively.  I also like the teacher, Mr Poddar Junior, because he is kind and he has helped me to be better at football, basketball and he taught me a new sport – badminton.


Is that it helps us to learn more about God. The motto of our school is ‘God is the master of our school’ and every time I come to school, it reminds me of how we should be polite. Also, it helps us to be better and more obedient. Stanborough teaches us about God and how we should respect people. The environment is very nice and has a positive view. The teachers are very caring and pray before lessons, which brings me closer to God each time we pray. Also, assembles are quite fun too.


I like that in Stanborough you can get help with anything. For example, if you need help with your school work you can always go up to the teacher and ask for help. If you are troubled by something or someone you can always find a teacher to talk to without being judged. Help is always there.

I like that the students are friendly.  If I needed to pass something on to someone, they would do it for me. It’s easy to talk to people. We live by the rule – Do unto others what you want done to you.


Something I like about Stanborough is that it has a caring environment. The teachers they believe in you, they don’t let you call you stupid and put you down. They show tough love to help you in your future. They help you with your presentation skills like telling you to iron your blazer and care about personal hygiene. The school is all about moving you on and helping you develop your relationship with God by bringing you closer to God. I have learnt that every problem can lead you to a better horizon.

God is the Master of our School.


My experience in Stanborough School is that it is a private school and you can get more attention than you would in a state school. The teachers give up their time for after school clubs because they want us to do well and enjoy ourselves. My favourite subjects are Biology, PE and ICT. The teachers also encourage us and the reason I like these subjects is because I have learnt some things I have never learnt before and in PE you have a lot of fun in the lessons. I really like Stanborough School – a great and excellent school.


I am here to share my experience at Stanborough.

In Stanborough I’ve felt love and happiness like never before. I’ve had friends – best ones in fact. I’ve felt as if I’ve walked on sunshine and frolicked in meadows of beautiful daffodils but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t had my fair share of horrible, bad emotions.

I’ve had horrible emotions – ones that I wish I could have never uncovered.  But here too I have found people who accept me for who I am.  I also know that there is a God who has a plan for my life.


The one thing I have learnt in Year 7 at Stanborough School is that some of the teachers here are very nice and they realise when you are upset and they cheer you up.

I like most of the subjects in this school.

Out of all the teachers, I like this person the most. The person is Mrs Anderson because she is very strict and funny; when she gives out work she explains them and helps us with experiments.

I have learnt great things in most of the subjects. All the lessons were fun and they were enriching for me.

In Stanborough I’ve learnt a lot of new things. I’ve learnt a lot especially in Art. I never knew that there were so many key words like elements (line tone colour shape pattern texture). In different subjects in could mean different things like in English in means things you use for example elements of a short story you need to use plot, character etc. I also learnt especially about plagiarism. It was something I never really thought about before because I didn’t think it was important. But now I know not to plagiarise because you could get into serious trouble.


I have learned at Stanborough School to be closer to God.

In assemblies I have learnt that God has plans for me.

I have grasped how to do the opening prayer by listening to my friends.

The teachers always pray for us before the lesson and tests.

The school welcomes every religion.

They are supportive of all races.

The school gives us the knowledge of Christ.

They aid people who are going through bad times.

The school guides us to choose God over sin.

I want to learn even more about God.

God is truly the Master of our school.
