Our School

I hope that you enjoy finding out about Stocksbridge Junior School and that it gives you an insight into the ethos of our vibrant school. It is designed to be no more than a brief introduction to our school and, as such, it cannot do justice to the rich variety of educational activity in our school.

Our aim is to provide children with rich and memorable learning experiences, and to foster a love of learning, so that our children become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. We have high expectations for all our children in terms of their work and behaviour, offering both challenge and support, to enable them to achieve their very best.

We are very proud of our school, of its commitment to high standards and of its inclusive ethos and I am very proud to serve as its headteacher.
Please feel free to contact us if you wish to find out any more about the school or to arrange a visit.

Kind regards,
Samantha Gaymond (Headteacher)
