Dear Students and Parents,
I am delighted that you are interested in joining our community here at Stretford Grammar School.
Whether you are an internal student looking to continue with the fantastic success you have had with us at GCSE, or an external student looking for a new challenge – you will undoubtedly feel welcome here.
Obviously we are ambitious for our students in terms of supporting them to reach their potential, but we are also nurturing; every student matters to us, and with more intensive 1-1 support we really can make sure that we are delivering strong pastoral care and tailored guidance to each student.
We are also set apart by our ambition, and we understand that to help students achieve their goals then we must provide extensive opportunities for them to develop both personally and academically. Students will join skills and careers based tutorials including the Medics Forum, the STEM group and the Debate Club to prepare them for life beyond our Sixth Form. We have an extensive network of professional contacts from within our wonderful community who are able to provide specific careers based support, and every year students are prepared for university entry to Russell Group institutions, Oxbridge and competitive degree courses.
Our Sixth Form students are leaders in our community. Leadership is an important skill for students to develop for entry to competitive courses, and apprenticeships, and there are countless opportunities here for students to shine, not least as being a member of our Sixth Form Leadership Team who act as ambassadors to our school community.
It has been a challenging year for us all, and I am proud of the resilience, and dedication our Sixth Formers have shown, as well as the level of support and kindness they have shown each other. We welcome you to join our community and look forward to seeing you in September 2021.
