Welcome to the Stoverview

Welcome to the Stoverview which, it is hoped, will be of interest to those connected with Stover School - and also to the wider community involved with secondary education, and perhaps to those just interested in 'bits and pieces' about science, history and stuff! See here for more.

Senior School Speech Day

The Choir practise for Speech Day
Wednesday 19th October saw Stover looking spick and span for the Senior School Speech Day. Prizes were presented by Guest of Honour Serena Brocklebank: mountaineer, diplomat, House Mistress and lawyer (amongst other things). Ms Brocklebank recently led a party from Stover on a trek to the Annapurna Base Camp and, with extreme modesty, gave a short but inspiring illustrated talk on her conquest of Everest - highlighting how she was acutely aware of following in her grandfather's footsteps.

Chair of the Governers Mrs Charlotte Walliker outlined some exciting new developments for Stover in her speech, including a move to being a completely coeducational school from September 2012, the advent of boys' boarding on the school site and a new structure to the school day - which will allow increased contact time for lessons and make it easier for pupils and staff to get more fully involved in extra-curricular activities.
