Business in the Community programme
We are pleased to announce that Sidney Stringer Academy is now working closely with exam board OCR as partners in the Business in the Community programme. This will be the first time that OCR has worked in this way with a school.
Mara Bogdanovic, Head of Business Engagement at OCR, said " “With one of our offices based in Coventry, we were delighted to be paired with Sidney Stringer Academy on the Business Class programme. Our staff are really enthusiastic about taking part in the programme and we look forward to collaborating with the team at Sidney Stringer to help their young learners achieve challenging aspirations.”
Record Results for Sidney Stringer students at GCSE
It is official- we are one of the TOP 100 performing
non selective state schools in the country!
We were delighted to receive a letter from David Laws who is the schools minister congratulating us on the achievement of our pupils
" The percentage of your pupils achieving 5 A* - C including English and Maths shows that your school is one of the top performing non - selective state schools in the country. The results also show that you are amongst the 100 top performing schools in terms of progress and pupil premium. ... it is clear that you and your staff have provided the pupils with a good start to adult life "
This is a tremendous accolade the hard work of all our fabulous staff and of course our pupils. We are all so proud of them.
Great A Level Results!
A level results continue to be strong at Sidney Stringer Academy with 43% of students achieving the higher grades (a 2% increase from last year) and 99.4% passing. The number of A* is also the best it has ever been and nearly half of these were awarded in A level mathematics. Mathematics is one of the Academy's specialisms, therefore we are exceptionally pleased with our Mathematics results. At AS level nearly two thirds achieved an A or B and at A level a staggering 88% of students achieved these higher grades, with a quarter of the students getting an A*. This once again shows how strong Mathematics is at the Academy.
