Welcome to Stratford Girls' Grammar School
Stratford Girls' Grammar School is one of the best state schools in the country. We firmly believe that when you enjoy, you excel - and our overriding aim is to offer each of our students the opportunity to do both. Every student here has access to a full and varied extra curricular timetable along with an exciting choice of subjects to add to those studied as part of the core curriculum.
It’s no secret that our students achieve outstanding results academically. Year on year students are breaking school records with their outstanding A-level and GCSE results and the school is ranked as one of the best in the country in national league tables. OFSTED rated us as outstanding and the school is recognised nationally as a centre of academic excellence – something our students and staff take great pride in.
This is a warm and happy school where every student is encouraged to be the best she can be both in her formal studies and beyond. Because it’s a relatively small school compared to other state schools, teachers are able get to know each student they teach, allowing them to target support where it is most needed.
Our sixth form is a highly academic learning community designed for some of the most able young women in the country – not only those who have grown up through the school - but also many who have joined us from elsewhere. Alongside their studies, our older students play a huge role in mentoring younger pupils and leading the school’s community activity – both important factors in their development.
If you would like to find out more about Stratford Girls’ Grammar School, I will be delighted to answer any questions you may have or you are welcome to join us at one of our open days.

The school blends up-to-the-minute educational architecture and facilities with the truly historic 15th century manor house and its gardens which are at the heart of the campus. There’s a certain air of tranquillity around the Manor despite the hubbub of happy school life, and it’s not hard to imagine Shakespeare and his sweetheart, Anne Hathaway, strolling along the Manor’s historic balcony – said to have inspired the balcony scene in Romeo & Juliet. It was in our sixth form study room (then a chapel) that Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway are thought to have become betrothed.
Whereas Shakespeare may have raised an eyebrow to see young women hurtling over hurdles or smashing a tennis ball around the courts, we know sport is high on the agenda for many students. Girls can take part in a whole host of activities from rowing to cricket and we’re extremely proud of their sporting achievements. Music is another strength at Stratford Girls’ Grammar and in our purpose-built music academy, girls make phenomenal progress during their time with us.
2014 A-level results: 82% A*-B grades, 54% A*-A.
