It has come to our attention that parents are using the private car park at the Lancastrian office building on the corner of Great Stone Road and Talbot Road both in the morning and afternoon to drop off/pick up pupils.
The entrance to that car park is an extreme blind spot and the building owners have advised that there have been multiple occasions where vehicles have almost collided with pupils of the school as well as parents in their vehicles. We share the building owners’ concern that the longer this continues, the greater the risk a collision and injury happening.
The message has been clearly shared with School that  this car park is not to be used to drop-off and pick up Students and I would appreciate your support in respecting this message.

Aspire Program Launched at Stretford High School

Stretford High School has now launched the Aspire Program to all learners.

ASPIRE – Achieve academically, enjoy Success, be Professional in attitude, grow in Integrity & Respect and recognise that hard work and Endeavour are keys to achieving our goals.’

Students can now focus on achieving their best in subjects and recognising their potential. It’s about trying hard in your subjects- and being rewarded for doing so. Giving students the opportunity to Aspire in lessons, work hard and achieve their goals.

For me info see the Aspire page.


This year’s first House newsletter is available to read here. It details what’s been happening in and around school over the first half of this year. Please take a spare minute to look through at all of the incredible achievements of your fellow students and colleagues – you never know, you could be famous.


On Monday 30th January we took 20 Year 8 students to the annual Trafford Holocaust Memorial Day event at Sale Waterside. This event, attended by the Mayor, local Councillors and representatives from all of the Trafford High Schools as well as survivors (and now descendants of survivors) from the Holocaust, is a deeply emotional event.

We have established a proud tradition of not only attending this event but also of presenting a thought provoking and relevant contribution to the proceedings. This year was no different. Using the theme “And life goes on” our students told the story of Stretford High School’s involvement with the Salford to Calais organisation and the Dunkirk Refugee Camp School. Our students drew parallels between the plight of refugees in Europe today with those from the Holocaust over 70 years ago.

Our students had prepared a powerful presentation that fitted beautifully with those produced by the other Trafford Schools. I was, as always, proud to see our students stand up for themselves and also for the most vulnerable people within Europe at the moment. Perhaps the whole meaning of Holocaust Memorial Day has taken on extra significance in the light of recent political events around the world. If so then I’m glad that our students have a sense that they have a role to play in helping to shape our response.


Player day, where Stretford High School took five Year 9 students to Manchester United AON Training Complex to take part in a fun day. Students had the opportunity to meet first team MUFC players such as Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Antonio Valencia, Timothy Fofu-Mensah, Anthony Martial.
