Principal, Rowan Cookson said, “I am delighted with our results and the excellent student achievements which have improved for the third consecutive year in a row. So many of our students have achieved fantastic individual results which is key to them fulfilling their ambitions. As always, these results reflect the huge amount of hard work and determination put in by our College staff who specialise in teaching 16 to 19 year olds, coupled with the dedicated support from students’ parents from all of our feeder schools. Strode’s offers something quite unique from school sixth forms in terms of our learning culture, the wide range of subjects and qualifications available at both A Level and BTEC and our ethos of great diversity and high expectations.
Congratulations to all our students; I wish them the very best for the future, whether they are progressing to university, an apprenticeship or directly into employment.”
