» About Us


Stokesley School and Sixth Form College is an 11-18 comprehensive school which is at the heart of the market town of Stokesley.

Stokesley School enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and beyond. Our students are well known for achieving high academic outcomes: we outperform a range of national attainment figures at GCSE and A-Level. We also have excellent progression rates with many of our students following higher education courses and, ultimately, career paths in medicine, veterinary science and mechanical engineering, to name but a few. Like all schools, we have areas to improve, but the dedication of our professional staff means we are driving forward change at a rapid rate and are at a really exciting time in our development. Furthermore, academic achievement does not tell the full story of our school: it is equally important to us to develop our students as responsible and sensitive young adults, fostering within them core values of integrity, empathy, diligence, discipline, perseverance and – perhaps above all else – kindness. Our values at school are simple: we want our students to be ready, respectful and ambitious, and these are underpinned by the school’s motto of ‘being the best we can be. We do not believe in zero tolerance as every child is different, but we do believe that all children can achieve high standards of positive conduct and performance regardless of their background or personal circumstances.


As part of the Areté Learning Trust, we are an outward-facing school: we work closely with our partner academies, Richmond School and Sixth Form College, Northallerton School and Sixth Form College, and Mill Hill Primary School; we also collaborate with other local schools on a range of projects. This enables us to be highly reflective as a staff and constantly seek new opportunities to promote success for the young people in our care.

The Headteacher of Stokesley School is Mr Michael Fenwick who can be contacted via the school.
