Stratford Editorial 26th Sep, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

AN ‘OUTSTANDING’ Stratford school and college have been featured in the Parliamentary Review.

The review is a key fixture in the political calendar and showcases some of the best practices in the public and private sector.

Copies of the paper are sent out to tens of thousands of leading policymakers and it is also used as a blueprint for reform and success.

And Stratford College and Stratford School have both been recognised in the review’s higher education and secondary education sections respectively.

School headteacher Neil Wallace said: “We are honoured to have been selected nationally as an example of best practice for such a prestigious publication.

“It is another affirmation of the outstanding progress that we have made as a school over the last few years.

“The case study highlights the cultural change at the school and the impact of employing high-quality, engaging teachers who create a unique atmosphere in an area where grammar schools are often presumed to be superior.”

Stratford College was equally as delighted – thanking those who have helped achieve success.

Principal Nicola Mannock said: “We are immensely proud to have our ethos and achievements recognised and to be selected to represent the best that the country has to offer in further and higher education.

“It reflects on everyone associated with the college and I should like to thank them all sincerely for their contribution in making us worthy of this honour.”

Director of the review, Daniel Yossman, has spoken out about the quality of the organisations featured in the paper.

He said: “It’s been an utter privilege to work with a range of organisations from across the country in this year’s review.

“Without their input, our aims of spreading expert knowledge and raising standards would not be achievable.

“They’ll be a hard act to follow and next year’s organisations will have to be on the top of their game to meet the challenge.”
