Welcome to the website for Stone Lodge School
Endeavour MAT is proud to announce the opening of a new secondary school for students living close to the Stone area of Dartford. Stone Lodge will be located in the Stone Valley area on London Road and at capacity will house approximately 1,600 students. The building is expected to be completed by September 2020.
Endeavour MAT has been created to extend opportunities to all students in its care. We are unique in the area in that we have both selective and non-selective schools in the Trust which means that staff and students at the school will have the opportunity to work in collaboration with their counterparts at Wilmington Grammar School for Girls and Wilmington Grammar School for Boys and via the NWKTSA Teaching School alliance with other prestigious secondary schools in the area such as Dartford Grammar School for Boys and Dartford Science and Technology College.
Endeavour MAT accepts that a ‘one size fits all’ approach to education restricts pupil progress and promotes a personalised approach to teaching and learning in all of its schools. Students are loosely set according to their relative performance in different subjects and are also gender set where appropriate, to ensure learning approaches can be tailored to meet individual and group requirements. Active learning rather than passive learning is encouraged and the schools take steps to ensure that as far as possible, any potential barriers to learning are removed for students. Endeavour schools encourage students to become resilient and resourceful and the schools deliver a programme to encourage these attributes entitled ‘Endeavour mindset’.
Stone Lodge School will be fully inclusive and cater for the diverse needs of its students. With its 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 have many industry partners who are keen to work with us in ensuring our curriculum is both cutting edge and destination driven.
The intended opening date of our permanent premises is September 2020, although it is anticipated that the school will be able to reside in temporary accommodation with a reduced intake of 120 students in 2019.
We will be hosting information events in the 2017-18 academic year to provide updates and give more in depth progress reports. If you are interested in finding out more, we would encourage you to express your interest by emailing email@example.com and you will be sent further updates and information about open events.
