Message from the headteacher

PrintDear Parents and Carers

I am delighted to welcome you to Bishop Stopford’s School, an Outstanding Christian School, which opened in 1967.  This academic year we will be celebrating 50 years of high achievement and academic excellence and I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of this marvellous school.

The Governors, I and the very experienced team of staff at Bishop Stopford’s School, are committed to a highly inclusive education.  ‘Achievement for all in a Christian community’ is at the heart of all our work here.  At Bishop Stopford’s School, we pride ourselves on achieving excellence through opportunity.  We believe that with the right opportunities, all of our students can achieve outstanding success.  Through high expectation, inspiration and determination, we ensure that every child excels.  This means that when our students leave us they are well equipped to contribute to society and enjoy every success in their adult lives.

Our School provides a vibrant and exciting environment where students love learning and thrive.  Our ‘Outstanding’ judgement for behaviour and attitude to learning in both our Ofsted and SIAMS inspections are testament to our strong family values, which underpin our Stopfordian Ethos.  We encourage our students to be caring, thoughtful and responsible.  Every individual in our school is highly valued.

We expect everyone at Bishop Stopford’s School to commit to the shared values and to take pride in being part of our exceptional school.

Kind regards
Mrs T Day
Headteacher
