Head Teacher’s welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Stratford School Academy – a vibrant, diverse, caring, inclusive school delivering excellence for all.

Rooted in the local community in the borough of Newham, we aim to provide an inspirational learning journey for every student. It is our firm belief that all of our students have the potential to achieve in school regardless of their starting points or individual circumstances. Our school culture, built upon high expectations for all, ensures that our students flourish.  This not only means students achieving strong examination results but also developing their wider skills and talents, character, sense of belonging and civic duty.

Our teachers and support staff are skilled and committed professionals, who work tirelessly to provide great experiences and outcomes for all of our students.  Relationships between staff and students are built upon respect and understanding; behaviour is very good. Our curriculum is a rich one, rooted in academic disciplines studied to GCCSE. Our students past and present are strong evidence of our success. We are proud of their academic progress, sporting achievements, musical performances, drama productions and their contribution to the local community. We aim for our students to leave Stratford School Academy as highly educated, knowledgeable, resilient, confident and well-rounded individuals, in control of their destinies and able to make a positive contribution in a changing world.

This part of London is home to many faiths and cultures and we see the richness of this diversity of one of our greatest strengths, whilst also stressing the importance of what we all have in common. I hope our website gives you a flavour of life at Stratford School Academy and I invite you to make an appointment to come into our school and see our staff and students in action.
