Blaby Stokes Profile

This is a co-educational school for children in the 4+ to 11 age range. The school is a C. of E. (Controlled) Primary School, which means it is affiliated to the Church of England but controlled by the local authority. The school occupies two buildings (built during the 1960’s about 80m apart) set amid spacious grounds which cater for a wide range of sporting activities and accommodating environmental and wildlife areas. Headlands Infants School and Stokes Junior School were amalgamated in May 1980 as Stokes C.E. Primary School.


Class sizes vary from year to year depending upon the number in each year group. The number in each year group will also determine whether children are grouped in single or mixed age groups.
