A challenging and enjoyable curriculum for all
Preparing for future life
At The Stoke Poges School, we are preparing children to become future citizens and aim to give them the skills and understanding to make a positive contribution to society. We develop their independence and awareness of others from the start. They are taught about social, global, political and environmental issues, how to question, how to contribute and how to make a difference.
We have a regular focus on ambition in which children have the opportunity to meet people from a range of professions and backgrounds.
Children are involved in charitable activities, choosing a cause they believe in and committing to raising awareness and funds for it. Many charity events are spearheaded by our dynamic school councillors, consisting of a representative from every class.
Educational visits and visitors
Learning in all national curriculum subjects is enhanced by cross-curricular study, workshops and practical activities. Groups are often taken on educational visits to complement their learning in school. Recent school visits have included trips to Reading Museum, Thames Explore Trust and St Paul’s Cathedral.
Visitors provide our learners with real-life experiences that can help them relate what they learn at school to the world around them and develop their confidence. Our visitors have included the Fire and Rescue Service, community police officers, well-known authors such as Dan Freedman, local members of the community, theatre companies and establishments such as West End in Schools’ Shakespeare workshops for primary schools.
