Stamford School

School Values and Aims

Stamford School provides education for boys aged 11 to 18, with regular intakes at ages 11, 13 and 16, and entry at other points possible depending on space and circumstances. The majority attend as day pupils, but boarding is available on a full-time or flexible basis. Sixth Form teaching is carried out jointly with Stamford High School.

The School has been sited on the eastern side of the stone-built town of Stamford since the sixteenth century. With our ancient Chapel nestling alongside fully IT-equipped teaching rooms and extensive games facilities, we offer an attractive combination of the very best that is both old and new.

Stamford School is proud of its high academic tradition, its caring pastoral support, its thriving sporting and cultural life and its exciting and varied extra-curricular programme. We extend the warmest of welcomes to all visitors and prospective pupils.
