At the heart of the school’s ethos is the ambition that every student has the opportunity to experience success. Whether in sport, enrichment or the curriculum, students will develop their self-confidence and employability through:

a. A school community which is committed to development of staff and students by embracing leadership opportunities

b. Making maximum progress as a result of consistently high standards of teaching and learning

c. A curriculum which provides all students with the skills and knowledge to facilitate a love of lifelong learning and the motivation to realise their potential as active citizens in an ever changing world

d. Facilities designed and planned to meet the needs of the school community and provide opportunities to enrich and enhance learning

e. The development of an extended school, working in partnership to meet the needs of the wider community


Therefore, at Stretford Grammar School we believe:

 In the pursuit of academic excellence

 In having high expectations of the progress of our students

 That we learn best in an environment where success in all its forms is celebrated and everyone is encouraged to take personal responsibility

 That this environment is created through clearly stated expectations of behaviour with emphasis on discipline and appropriate rewards

 That everyone needs to experience success in some aspect of school life to gain confidence and raise self esteem

 That we are all members of a learning community built on mutual respect and support
