Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Stratton School!

I am absolutely thrilled to have been appointed to the role of Principal in September 2022. My journey to Stratton has taken me to many exciting schools and differing roles over my 20 years in education. I am an English teacher at heart but have also enjoyed opportunities to teach a variety of subjects over the years.

 I challenge every child at Stratton to be the best they can be, and we promote a ‘can do’ culture in which everyone is encouraged to strive for excellence. We work in partnership with parents and carers to uphold the traditional values of respect and tolerance, resulting in harmony within our community, where the contribution of every individual is valued.

Stratton School is proud to be at the heart of its community and we have a long history of supporting our students in achieving their goals. We are committed to nurturing the abilities of every student in order to equip them with the qualifications and personal skills they need to become confident, independent adults and successful citizens of tomorrow.

At Stratton, we set the highest expectations in terms of learning and behaviour, and follow a broadly academic curriculum that includes English, mathematics, science, humanities and languages supplemented with strong provision in the arts and technology. Most students join our thriving Sixth Form, with many progressing to university. However, recognising that some individuals’ abilities lie in other areas, we provide a wealth of opportunities and courses that allow every student to develop and showcase his or her unique talents.

The change from middle or primary to a secondary school can be both exciting and challenging for many young people, but we hope we can quickly establish a close and cooperative partnership with you and your family.  The aim of that partnership will be to support your child settle into the school and take advantage of the learning opportunities on offer to all our new students. We also appreciate 2024 brings its own unique challenges as Central Bedfordshire moves from a 3-tier model into a 2 tier, primary/secondary school system. With this in mind, please do reach out to us if anything in the booklet is new or unfamiliar to you.

We will be doing our utmost to ensure every student enjoys ideal conditions for learning.  That process starts with the creation and maintenance of a calm and orderly environment where students feel safe and secure.  At Stratton School, our identity is built on a foundation of academic excellence, creativity, and a strong sense of community. We value diversity and strive to create a welcoming and inclusive environment where every student can thrive and reach their full potential.

I warmly invite you to visit the school to experience for yourself its positive atmosphere and the excellent opportunities it offers students.
