Welcome to Sidney Stringer Academy

Sidney Stringer Academy caters for 1300 students aged 11-19 including a large sixth form. The Academy opened in September 2010 and is sponsored by Coventry University, City College, Jaguar Land rover and Coventry City Council. 

Our ambition is to create a vibrant, happy and successful academy which delivers the very highest standards of education and nurtures each student’s talents and skills and plays a central role in meeting the needs of our local community.


Sidney Stringer Academy is a very successful school.  We have recently been judged as OUTSTANDING by Ofsted in all categories.  The school is in the top 2% of schools in the country for student progress and the Maths department in the top 1%, Social Sciences top 3%, English top 6% and Science and MFL top 11%. We are currently very oversubscribed and an extremely popular local school.


The curriculum we offer both stretches the gifted and talented and supports those with special needs. Ofsted commented that “The Academy supports students exceptionally well”.  We set high standards and have high expectations of all. We all look forward to working in partnership with parents and appreciate your support in achieving the status as an outstanding Academy.


We also have a high quality learning environment with a fabulous new building which was completed in the spring of 2012. This is an exciting time to be a student or member of staff at Sidney Stringer. If you want to find out more please come and visit us and see for yourself, you are most welcome.


The Academy is an all-inclusive school, welcoming students from all backgrounds, of all faiths or none, and of all abilities, operating under Coventry City Council's Admissions policy.
