An 11-16 Academy
Welcome back to a new school year. It has been a very exciting start to the term as we celebrate our record-breaking GCSE grades, and start our formal relationship with Sapientia Education Trust. I am pleased to report that the students have quickly settled down to their studies this term. We were especially pleased to welcome our new year seven and can confirm that they have made an impressive start to their high school studies.
We were absolutely thrilled with the GCSE results attained by last year’s students. They were justly rewarded for the effort and commitment that they put in during their time with us. A stunning 87% of them achieved Grade 4 or above in English, and 82% achieved this in maths. Impressively, 79% of our students reached this grade in both of these subjects, an achievement that put Stradbroke High School in the top three best schools in the whole of Suffolk. We are delighted for our ex-students, and wish them all the very best as they go on to further studies. We are confident that they will continue to be successful in all their future endeavours. These results were also testament to the dedication and hard work of our incredible teaching staff. Our main focus is always to ensure that every student is supported and challenged to achieve their very best at school and make progress beyond their own expectations.
Mr Taylor (CEO of Sapientia Education Trust) is our new Executive Headteacher following Mr Bloom’s retirement. We are looking forward to a very positive working relationship with him and the other schools in the Trust, including Wymondham College. The school governors are expecting our school to fully join the trust later this term. Mr Taylor has been getting to know the staff and students, and is keen to meet as many parents and carers as possible over the coming weeks and months.
At the very end of the summer holiday FOSH held their annual CARnival. The weather was incredibly kind and many of you will have had a great day out looking at all the classic cars and enjoying the many other attractions. A huge thank you to FOSH for their efforts on behalf of the school, this event raised significant funds for the Friends and all of the money will be spent on the students in school.
Please regularly look for updates on all our activities on this website. I am looking forward to continuing to work with you and your children to ensure another successful year for all members of the school community. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to discuss any all aspect of school life.
