What we believe in

We are committed to the principle of providing a broad and balanced curriculum that provides students with the maximum opportunity to study subjects they enjoy whilst at the same time ensuring their curriculum is academically demanding. Our desire is to ensure that every student at Stanley makes at least, their expected progress. This means that we also provide students with unique vocational courses that will provide good progression routes when they leave Stanley.

The core curriculum will include:

Option Pathways

The majority of students will follow Pathway 1 and will continue with their Modern Foreign Language option in Year 8 and select at least one Humanities option and two further examination courses.

Pathway 1


Where students may require additional support or have extended periods of absence, they will be offered one of the additional pathways. These pathways would only be available following discussions with Mrs Lee, Mrs Fraser-Orr and /or Mr Wright.

Personalised Pathways

Pathway 2


Pathway 3


Pathway 4
