The Stanley Story
The British Primary educational philosophy is a unique instructional approach created more than 40 years ago under the direction and leadership of founding head, Carolyn Hambidge.
Today, Stanley British Primary School is a singular independent school serving children from kindergarten through 8th grade. At Stanley, a child's education goes well beyond academics - our teachers and our instruction principles give children the opportunity to reach their full potential academically, creatively, socially, emotionally and physically.
Stanley's founder, Carolyn Hambidge, was educated at The Froebel Institute, now a college within the London University system. She and her young family settled in Denver in the early 1970s; soon after, Carolyn and a team of like-minded educators opened a preschool rooted in progressive principles.
Over a relatively short time, their enterprise developed into the Stanley School, taking its name from the historic Stanley school building they adopted on 13th Avenue & Quebec Street (now Paddington Station Preschool), and later moving to our current location, the former officer's club and barracks of the Lowry Airforce Base.
