School profile

Stroud High School

Stroud High School is a selective Girls school and co-educational Post 16 provider. We enable bright students to thrive and flourish in an environment and culture which enables the “exceptional” to become an everyday occurrence. Our students and staff know that this takes hard work, the humility to keep improving and a passion for learning itself.

Our community is built on excellent relationships, a respect for individuality, a commitment to inclusivity as well as a sense of fun – the way we all treat each other is as important as what we do.

Our progress levels at GCSE are consistently among the very highest in Gloucestershire and make us one of the highest performing state girls' school in the South West. Our performance at GCSE and A Level combined has the Sunday Times Parent Power ranking us year on year as one of the top performing schools in the South West and within the top fifty state schools in the country. Year on year our students access the full range of Universities in the UK and abroad as well Art Colleges, Performing Arts Colleges and Higher Apprenticeships
