Health and well-being/relationships skills to be able to achieve positive self-actualization and self-esteem, essential factors for heightened wellbeing.
Every Child (Inclusive approach to education)
We are determined to ensure every child is able to fulfil their full potential and those facing particular obstacles are supported to overcome them.
Good leadership skills to support transition into adulthood foster the skills and character to be responsible citizens, and promote social and emotional well-being.
We promote the five pillars of British values in all we do. These values are in schemes of work and lesson plans. The Fundamental British Values are:
- The rule of law
- Individual liberty
- Mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs
Additionally, we focus on six core school values every academic year – one every half term. Pupils make a journal entry on the half-term value on the first and last Thursday of each half-term.
The school values for 2023– 2024
Trust - Hope - Faithfulness - Thoughtfulness - Justice - Mercy
When it was first founded in 1919, Stanborough School catered primarily to the children of overseas missionaries. This changed when the decision was made to offer a wider range of students access to the quality education provided at Stanborough.
Since opening our doors in 1919, Stanborough has grown so much, that in 1974 the Primary School moved to a new facility. In 1990, the Primary School added an Early Learning Unit and in 1991, the construction of a new complex for the secondary and boarding school students was completed.
