Children’s views on what type of adult they wish to become: The children of South Stoke Primary School want to be sensible, helpful, kind, sporty, clever, hardworking, artistic, friendly, brave, fun, wise, fair and truthful when they are adults.
South Stoke Primary School's roots date back to 1659 when £600 was donated by Dr. Griffith Higgs to buy a plot of land and maintain a charity school for 8 poor children. New buildings were built in 1831 with extensive modifications in the 1970's and early 2000's.
We continue to be a welcoming, friendly school which is at the centre of the community.
