Learning at The Stoke Poges School
We invite you to take a walk around our school…you could find yourself exploring the fascinating sights and sounds of the rainforest, helping Florence Nightingale care for the injured soldiers in the Crimean War, attending a harsh Victorian school or hopping aboard a pirate ship bound for exotic lands!
We approach learning with an open mind and a lot of fun. We aim to foster deep learning and global awareness through a progressive, cohesive and coherent knowledge-rich curriculum. Our educational experiences are based around a quality central text and quality first teaching.
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.
Classroom learning environment
Our classroom environments are bright, vibrant, engaging and ever-changing, with celebrations of children’s work and creativity evident throughout school. A wide variety of practical resources also support learning across all subjects, including a range of computing equipment such as laptops, iPads, visualisers and integrated SMART technology.
