TOP 5% OF SCHOOLS FOR VALUE-ADDED

 

In 2021, Stonar was in the top 1% of 400 schools across the country in a nationwide value-added assessment of GCSE grades. Under the same assessment, the school was placed among the top 2% nationwide for A Levels. These results serve as a testament to the hard work of our pupils and teachers, demonstrating that teachers work with each pupil as an individual throughout their Senior School years to ensure they achieve beyond their expectations, supporting and challenging them to make progress across all subjects.

We are very proud of our exam results which demonstrate our success in delivering high-calibre results for pupils of all abilities.
