Information about the school

Endeavour MAT is opening Stone Lodge School, its third exceptional school in September 2019. We will be a fully inclusive, community school and cater effectively for the needs of our students. With our exciting curriculum offer, the school will be particularly attractive for students who are passionate about STEM subjects and who are keen to work in a climate of respect and encouragement, where students are helped to become both exam ready and life ready.

We are currently appointing highly motivated, dynamic teachers and leaders to deliver exciting learning every lesson, every day, so that all our students reach their full potential and secure first class destinations. Every year until 2026, the school will increase significantly in size, growing to an eight-form entry school of 1450 students aged 11 to 18 years. We plan to develop an exiting KS5 offer in our third year, working with the successful Wilmington Grammar Joint 6th Form (WG6).

We look forward to welcoming our first Year 7 in September 2019, where we have been heavily oversubscribed. There is surely no better time to impact on Stone Lodge School as it begins its lifecycle and the 2019 appointed teaching staff will be keen to work closely with senior leaders in a supportive, developmental staff ethos, to deliver innovative curriculums, exceptional teaching and learning, highly effective assessment methodology and a high performing yet inclusive learning culture.
