Staindrop Academy’s website.
Welcome to Staindrop Academy’s website.
I am delighted to welcome you to Staindrop Academy; a very well-regarded, high achieving and popular school at the heart of a rural community. Set on the western edge of the historic village of Staindrop and overlooking rolling fields and farms, Staindrop Academy is without doubt one of the most attractively situated schools in the region. I hope that this website will inform you, inspire you and give you a taste of the very special qualities of our school.
Our ethos is built upon a tradition of excellence for the wellbeing, achievements, aspirations and success of our young people. We believe in offering the highest quality education, both in the classroom and through our extensive extracurricular activities. We have been recognised for outstanding provision and won numerous awards, including International Links, Fair Trade, Enterprise, Anti-bullying and STEM.
We are keen for our students to develop as confident, responsible and considerate individuals who excel and make a lasting contribution within and beyond their school life. We are extremely proud of their outstanding achievements in all walks of life. Our students are the finest ambassadors, demonstrating what can be achieved through hard work and a positive attitude. The day-to-day atmosphere of Staindrop is warm, friendly and orderly and visitors always comment on the calm and purposeful atmosphere that pervades every aspect of school life.
Our partnerships with parents and carers are very important to us and we will work closely with you throughout your child’s time with us to nurture their aspirations, their learning and their achievement.
Thank you for considering Staindrop Academy as a possible choice for your child’s secondary education. If you would like to make an arrangement to visit us then please email or telephone the school.
We look forward to welcoming you to Staindrop Academy very soon.
