Thank you for your interest in the advertised post at Stretford Grammar School.
Stretford Grammar School is a co-educational Foundation Grammar School with ambitious students who demonstrate high levels of care and consideration towards each other and the wider community. This caring and compassionate behaviour is celebrated in our Ofsted reports and frequently commented upon by visitors to the school who are struck by the courteous, purposeful, and respectful atmosphere. At the heart of the school, core values of courtesy and respect, together with our diversity and excellent relationships, make Stretford Grammar School a unique place to learn and work.
The school’s principal aim of striving for the very best for all students was confirmed in the most recent inspection of 2019 which highlighted the “good quality of education” coupled with “a clear vision for the school” which aims to “develop the whole child”. In addition, the school places great value on student participation in a broad range of curricular and extra-curricular opportunities aimed at developing life skills, leadership potential and links with the wider community. In doing so, we hope that each and every one of our students has the opportunity to experience success during their time at Streford Grammar School, whether academically or through the wider provision of the school.
Whilst we are a grammar school, our students are by no means drawn from the most affluent areas of the borough. Our IDACI places the school towards the lower end of the deprivation index but we are blessed with supportive parents and a committed Governing Body who work hard to ensure that every child has the potential to follow their dreams and aspirations.
The successful applicant will be an innovative and skilled practitioner who is committed, hardworking and passionate about making a difference to the lives of the students whom they teach. In doing so they will be joining a school that is “welcoming and inclusive, with a strong sense of community”. If you feel you have the qualities to contribute to such a community and be a role model for the students in your care then I hope the information enclosed and on the website encourages you to apply to what is, I believe, a unique school with a special group of young people.
