A welcome picnic to kick start return to school

We hosted our first ‘Welcome Picnic’ on the first day of term and were absolutely delighted by the fantastic turn out from new and current families. This was such a great opportunity for all teachers, children and families to be together again after such a long period of being apart only meeting virtually.

We have also returned this Autumn Term with exciting changes. We are delighted to announce that, from this new academic year, we have moved to a three-form entry in Middle School for Years 3, 4 and 5 and in Year 6, the start of their Senior School at Stroud, we are starting the new academic year with a four-form entry.

Further changes here at Stroud include a new adventure playground with log towers and climbing nets, as well as two very cool hammocks!

This new adventure playground is just one small part of our vision to get our children flourishing outside: we believe in children thriving when they have plenty of access to the great outdoors. In a world where education is increasingly digitised, we have also hired a new Outdoor Ranger, Mr Silas Caie, who will be focusing on unlocking the potential of our extensive natural areas whilst developing the provision of learning outside the classroom across all year groups.

We will be holding an Open Morning on Friday 1 October. To book your place, please call 01794 513231 or visit www.stroud-kes.org.uk.
