We have 6 Year 12 students participating in 'The Legal Apprentice' Competition which is very exciting. They are in teams of 3:

The Legal Apprentice is Kingsley Napley’s legal competition, in partnership with The Times, for students in school or college in years 12 or equivalent. They have invited students to work as part of a team to complete a series of tasks, designed to encourage them to tap into their “inner solicitor” – using skills and logic to provide legal advice for virtual clients. The competition aims to provide students with first-hand experience of what it is like to be a solicitor. The Legal Apprentice gives students a unique opportunity to find out through personal experience exactly what it is like to be a solicitor. It also offers the chance to understand the nuances between legal practices such as Criminal, Dispute Resolution, Corporate and Employment law for example.

Most importantly, The Legal Apprentice helps students decide if a career in law as a solicitor is something they might want to pursue – whether they had considered it before or not.

Most excitingly, Kingsley Napley is thrilled to offer its first apprenticeship to one student from the winning team of The Legal Apprentice Competition.

​Academic Mentoring sessions

Academic Mentoring sessions are built into every students’ timetable to discuss progress towards goals and actions that need to be taken.

We also make good use of our links with Coventry and Warwick Universities.

We are proud to work with the widening participation team to raise aspirations of all students.

The purpose of the 16-19 Bursary Fund is to support young people aged 16-19 in full time education who face financial barriers to participation such as costs of transport, food or equipment. It is made up of two parts, a bursary of £1,200 a year to the most vulnerable young people and a discretionary fund for schools and colleges to distribute.

Vulnerable Group Catergory

  • Young people in care
  • Care Leavers
  • Young people in receipt of income support (or Universal Credit) in their own name
  • Disable young people in receipt of Employment Support Allowance and Disability Living Allowance (or Personal Independence Payments) in their own name

For learners not in the above groups the school uses the Free School Meals and Pupil Premium eligibility to give financial support from the 16-19 Discretionary Bursary.

Former student...

George Baker returned to Stoke Park Sixth Form on Wednesday 18th January to share his experiences of his first year studying Sports Journalism at Southampton University.

George discussed with current Year 13 students the emotions associated with leaving home for the first time and the first day fear of not knowing anybody on his course, the difference between Sixth Form study and University study, cheapest supermarkets to buy your shopping in while at University and how to cope with untidy housemates.He also shared his experiences of the many opportunities he has gained through his extra curricular activities and work experience while at Southampton University.

Year 13 students really appreciated the fact that George gave up his time to come and share his experiences with them. Given the fact that he had been exactly where they currently are this time last year it encouraged them to aim high and to keep pursuing their goals.

Many thanks George!

Democracy Challenge

Year 13 students participate in The Democracy Challenge at The Lord Mayor’s Hospitality Suite Thursday 12th October.

The week beginning October 10th was local democracy week within Coventry City Council and the Council scheduled several events that week for young people to give them more of an insight into the work that councillors do within the city.

On Thursday 12th October four Year 13 students, Alex Damjanovic, Anil Kararra, Eloise Cook and Alijcia Olejniczak participated in The Democracy Challenge at the Lord Mayor's Hospitality Suite at Council House. The event had a speed dating format where young people had the opportunity to speak to various different councillors.The aim of the event was that the councillors work for the young people in an attempt to gain their votes.

The students enjoyed the event immensely and discussed issues with councillors which were important to them from educational, youth and community viewpoints.

Andrea Cooper...

On Wednesday 5th November, former Stoke Park student Andrea Cooper explained to Year 12 and Year 13 students that Stoke Park was the first school in the country to allow a student to attend school with the assistance of a guide dog.

As a result of the agreement of former Stoke Park Head Teacher, Mr. Bill Wolger, Andrea, who has severe tunnel vision, with the assistance of her guide dog Cara, successfully completed her GCSEs, AS and A2 examinations.

In July 2012, Andrea graduated from Warwick University with a Politics and Sociology Degree again with the assistance of her trusted guide dog Cara, who has had an enormous impact on Andrea’s life.
