Stratton is a vibrant Upper School with around
900 students on roll. Due to considerable housing development within and around
Biggleswade, the school is set to grow significantly, including a longer- term
plan to admit students at Y7 to an overall capacity of 1650 students. We are
proud of our large and successful Sixth Form and the breadth of curriculum we
are able to offer our post-16 students. In every respect we are a truly
comprehensive school with a full ability range. As the only provider of Key
Stage 4 and 5 education in the town, our challenge is to move effortlessly
between preparing Year 13 students for top universities to working with
students who, without our support, would have rejected the concept of
education. Our students are our best advertisement, although closely followed
by our dedicated, creative and passionate staff.
