Excellent Facilities

Stroud High Sixth Form is at the heart of Stroud High School. Facilities are excellent. Lessons are conducted in spacious classrooms and state of the art Science laboratories.

We have recently completed the refurbishment of 3 Science labs and are currently in the process of constructing two new ones including a dedicated one for Sixth Form lessons costing in excess of £1.2million.

Study facilities are designed to support independent learning and scholarship. Plans are in place to extend the current library into a new spacious site for use by the entire school community. There are 7 ICT suites across the campus.

If you fancy a snack you can always sign your devices onto the guest network and work in our canteen space whilst enjoying one of Richie's homemade cakes and coffee.

Many students use our shared Study Centre.  This is now a place where Stroud Sixth Formers and Marling School Sixth Form can access study facilities. There is a cafe as well as a lecture theatre. If you need help with your independent study Claire, our study support supervisor, is always on hand to guide you and support your transition to A-Level.

Social Spaces: Joint Sixth Form cafe - SHS study Cafe

Designated cafe spaces for SHS students


We are fortunate to have a number of social cafe spaces available for you to grab a coffee or a bite to eat whilst in between lessons and also a joint facility shared with Marling School. SHS Sixth Formers are used to using their study time effectively and so we have a number of bookable mobile devices for you to use either for group study if working on a presentation or for individual prep before classes - all whilst having a snack!

academic Library: resources, ICT Suites, recording facilities

sHS scholarship

At Stroud High, we are independent learners and this means spending time in our well-stocked academic library - reading, thinking and researching. There is the opportunity to access 7 ICT suites, newspapers and the latest publications and access to a wide-ranging series of Online Journals to aid you in your own explorations and discoveries. It is in the SHS Resource Centre that deep, critical thinking takes place! We also have recording facilities and radio equipment for all you budding journalists. Current plans are in place for an up-grade to this area which will include further Sixth Form study spaces and a development of the current facilities.

Lecture Theatre: bookable space for Seminars / Societies

sHS visiting speakers, lectures, societies

You will be immersed in a community where you can join a number of clubs and societies from FemSoc to Debating and AmnestySoc or LawSoc. There are also opportunities for you to attend lectures and seminars by visiting writers, politicians, and industry specialists...as well as watching thought-provoking Netflix Documentaries and films with friends!

This is a bookable space and can be used by you to share presentations in preparation for your Extended Project Qualification or for those of you who are off to the United Nations to make a difference in the world!

Science: biology, Chemistry, Physics

SHS LABORATORIES

Our SHS Science Labs have recently undergone a £1.2 million refurbishment making this a fantastic learning environment for all you A Level scientists and a specialist, dedicated space for Sixth Formers following a science pathway onto Biomedical sciences, Forensics, Astro-Physics, Engineering and more...

It is also a great space for our MedVetDent society to meet and discuss current issues! There are two more state of the art classrooms being built ready for completion in March 2019 - 21st century learning at its best!

Commitment to STEM

The Science team also use their specialist facilities to work with students on STEM projects. Each year Sixth Formers work in collaboration with leaders in their fields to produce some innovative solutions to science projects ranging from Space elevator project and a Nuclear project  - with EDF via Dr McEllin to a Bridge Project with Tony Gee Consulting via Dr KostovaIn. The last few years, we have had many successful SHS students who have taken up Higher and Degree Apprenticeships at Rolls Royce, Dyson, Renishaw and employment at Ecotricity to name a few.
