Teach Meet 2014
This month Sidney Stringer, in conjunction with Hays Education, hosted an extremely successful Teach Meet attracting over 130 people involved in teaching and learning. Along with keynote speaker David Cameron, there were short presentations in a wide variety of topics and a very successful teaching and learning carousel to share great practice.
The Swan Alliance has places available on the ‘School Direct Training Programme’ (Tuition route). This is available to high quality graduates and, if successful, you will work alongside PGCE trainees spending a significant amount of time in university. You would then undertake placements in Coventry based in either Sidney Stringer Academy or across primary schools within our Teaching School Alliance.
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
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.
