ABOUT STANES SCHOOL
Head of School's Welcome,
The Stanes High School Council is in charge of running the coed school with residential facilities. It aims to give its students a solid academic foundation while also giving them the chance to thrive in extracurricular activities and sports.
The school is built on solid Christian values, which also respects all other faiths and instills in its pupils a strong sense of secularism.
The holistic development of the student is highly valued at the school. Under the guidance of professionals, participation in a variety of games and sports is encouraged. Inter-school and district competition participation fosters a sense of competition and fair play. The chance to participate in drama, elocution, and other artistic endeavours is also offered.
The environment is presented to students through group activities that inculcate a strong sense of preservation amongst them. While music is compulsory for resident students the learning of at least one musical instrument is encouraged.
On behalf of the Stanes family I warmly welcome you to be part of this life shaping Journey.
