Values and vision
Church Stretton School is committed to providing first-rate educational opportunities, regardless of student background or ability, for the community it serves. The secondary school offers a curriculum that matches need and raises aspirations, using the best learning methods. Teachers hope pupils will enjoy their time at school through the pleasure of learning and discovery.
While students’ academic performance is strong, encouragement of participation in extra-curricular opportunities is considered to be of equal importance, with Church Stretton School offering a wide range of activities. From the Duke of Edinburgh Award to work in the arts, music and sport, along with local and international visits, the activity programme is rich and varied.
“Teaching is now judged by you as good or outstanding as a result of rigorous monitoring and effective professional development. School leaders have high expectations, which the school community is determined to meet. Middle leaders play an increased role in monitoring teaching, learning and assessment and they are accountable for performance in their areas of responsibility. As a result of these and other improvements, most current pupils in most subjects at both key stages are making good progress. Poor behaviour is rare. ”
