Exceptional Results

We believe the environment at Stroud High helps our students to achieve and our ethos of Everything is Possible has played a central role in helping us to become one of the UK's highest performing sixth forms.

When we ask our students why they join our Sixth Form over 90% of them say it is the quality of teaching and the learning environment.

Every grade tells the story of hard work and application combined with an experience in school which each and every member of staff helps create. Through the hard work and support of teachers and a learning experience that goes well beyond the classroom we know you can achieve more than you imagined.

Year-on-year our students achieve results that place SHSF amongst the very highest performing state schools in the South West, and within the top state schools in the country. In any given year A*-B grades range from 67%-80% and routinely around half of all grades are at A*/A.

As a result our students' go on to access the full range of Universities and Degree Apprenticeships including:

- Oxbridge
- Medical School
- Conservatoires
- Performing Arts Institutes
- Veterinary School
- Ministry of Defence
- Art College
- USA universities
- J P Morgan
- Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC)
- St. James's Place Wealth Management
- Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology
- Renishaw
- GE Aviation
- Rolls-Royce
- Vodafone

You will leave Stroud High Sixth Form with life changing qualifications.

Whatever your ambition, we will help you get there. Everything is possible.

Outstanding Ofsted - November 2023
We are delighted to report that following our Ofsted inspection in November 2023 the school has achieved an overall rating of Outstanding. To read more, please click HERE.

Since our last inspection in 2010, the school has expanded in size, and the curriculum and provision for the Sixth Form have significantly changed. Staff have worked hard to transform our Sixth Form offer, and it was rightly graded as Outstanding in its own right. Inspectors wrote:

"In the sixth form, study programmes are tailored carefully to students’ needs. The school has planned the curriculum with precision...  As a result, they achieve exceptionally well. Sixth form students are prepared exceptionally well for their future destinations.”
