John Axtell our Head of School, told a packed assembly hall at last night’s annual awards evening that the school had deservedly won its place among the top two schools in Suffolk for achievement – with 58% of students achieving level 5 or higher in their GCSEs in 2017.

In front of an audience including staff, governors and students, Mr Taylor presented all the evening’s awards and commented that when UNESCO estimates that around the world there are 263 million school aged children who are not provided with any formal education, students at Stradbroke are supported by an environment which: “…believes in you and does the very best it can to lay the foundations for you to go on to achieve your dreams and aspirations “.
After describing how Andrew Agassi, Christiano Rinaldo and other world class sporting figures made huge sacrifices and devoted endless hours of practice to achieve their success, Mr Taylor said “My essential message tonight is that perseverance and practice, hard work and resilience are the keys to success”.

Following our school tradition, Year 11 students who were nominated to be Head Girl, Head Boy or a Prefect recently enjoyed a trip to London to Westminster. As well as visiting the Jewel Tower at Westminster Palace, they enjoyed a tour of the Houses of Parliament, and found out among many other things, why Her Majesty the Queen is not allowed into the House of Commons. After learning about the monarchy, the history of the art at the palace and the role of government and parliament, students also enjoyed a visit to Whitehall, past the Cenotaph and Downing Street and to Horseguards Parade - with lunch in St James Park. A memorable trip, acknowledging the important part these students will play this year in the school community.
