Congratulations on your child being offered a place at Stretford High School.  With over 400 applications for 190 places, we are delighted that your child has successfully gained a place in our school.

Here at Stretford High we are very proud of the achievements of our students; from their first day they work hard to attain the highest qualifications they possibly can and to become part of our exciting learning community.  Your child will be joining a thriving environment where they will be encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning.  A wealth of opportunity will be provided to allow every child to grow both academically and personally.
