Our annual Open Evening events were held at Stratford School Academy on Monday 19th September and Tuesday 27th September.
This year we held two Open Evenings, one at each of our school buildings. This highly successful event was an opportunity for prospective students and their parents to look around Stratford School Academy and find out all of the information they need, before applying for their place at the Academy. Prospectus packs were available for all. Click here to view our School Prospectus and information pack.
The evening was a great success, there were many activities on offer showcasing the exciting learning that takes place here at Stratford School Academy. We ran regular student-led tours of the school, which enabled Year 6 students and parents to visit all departments and their classrooms, there was a real buzz for excitement for learning, our pupils were participating in music performances, stimulating science experiments, maths games, activities in classrooms and PE fitness competitions. In addition, the Headteacher, Senior Leadership Team and teachers were also available to meet and talk to parents. Visitors gathered to hear welcome presentations from Senior Year 11 Prefects followed by the Head Teacher’s presentation. View the prefect’s presentation below.
‘Thank you for coming to Stratford School Academy and giving us the opportunity to show you what our school has to offer. We are currently Year 11 students and senior prefects for the academy, our role this evening is to represent students of the school. Students at Stratford School Academy thrive because they are motivated to succeed, well behaved and keen to learn. The teachers here inspire us to be successful by giving us the essential skills we need for later life and also by working extremely hard to get us the best grades we possibly can.’ Himani Kumar and Eryk Szymon, Year 11.
