We also offer affordable swimming lessons and school holiday clubs for all children in the community.

Stantonbury Theatre

Our theatre was the first in Milton Keynes and offers huge enrichment opportunities to our students who are able to showcase their impressive range of talents in our large scale musicals, music concerts, drama productions, dance shows and professional pantomime.

Supported by the Trust’s Director of Performance, the theatre is also a key public arts venue in Milton Keynes, programming world class theatre and dance productions, the majority of which students can access free of charge.

Increasingly students have the opportunity to take part in professional productions in their own theatre, including the annual Stantonbury pantomime produced in association with Greenwich Theatre.

Other opportunities for students include technical theatre training and, for Sixth Formers, the chance to be employed as theatre ushers.

Parent Friends of Stantonbury Theatre

We have introduced a Parent Friends Group for the theatre, open to all parents and carers of students at Stantonbury School.

Membership is free and benefits include first sight of our programmes and shows, so you can book your favourite seats in advance. It also allows access to our professional shows when they are available.

Full details are available on the Theatre website.

Support for 100% Achievement

Stantonbury School has high aspirations for all its students to achieve age related expectations at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Staff adapt their teaching based on an understanding of what students can and can’t do so that individuals experience an appropriate level of challenge.

We recognise, however, that at different points in their life students may face barriers to learning which may prevent them from achieving their potential. This may be because of illness, poor self-esteem, mental health issues, or gaps in their prior learning.

To help students to overcome these barriers, Stantonbury School employs dedicated support staff who specialise in counselling, health and wellbeing, careers and academic tutoring. Many of these are located in the Wellbeing Centre.
