Welcome to all Year 10 and 11 students

This March we are launching the first of our Strode newsletters that is specially designed at helping all Year 10 and 11 students with their next steps into college.

Each month we'll be focusing on articles about college life at Strode, our courses, spotlights on a variety of career paths, events, and information, advice and guidance that will help make your choices easier and the transition into college a successful one.

Our Successful College Experience day

On Tuesday 6th March we held our first Virtual College Experience day that offered all students a taste of subject lessons. We had a fantastic register of over 420 Year 10 and 11's who personalised their own timetable for the day and joined tutor-led Zoom lessons for A Levels, T Levels, and Vocational courses.

Don't worry if you couldn't join us as tutors have compiled course handouts to provide more information and interesting facts about what you will study. To help you with your course selections, you can check them out here.

Did you know that you can keep your options open and apply to more than one college?

We know that our young people have adapted to a lot of change and Covid-19 has changed their day-to-day life for a long time.

Moving on to college is an exciting progression, so to help reduce any worry and anxiety, we are offering all 16-18 year-olds guaranteed places for September 2021. This means that we will provide you with a place on the course which is most suitable for you, and if the grades are different than you expected, your offer may be on a course that is a level higher or lower.

Our guarantee does not mean you can relax - if you study hard now and get the best grades you can, you will be able to get on the course of your choice. Good luck!
