Welcome to Strode College

We are delighted that you are interested in studying at Strode College. We have a local and national reputation for excellence as one of the very best performing colleges in the country.

Whether you study A Levels, a vocational course or an apprenticeship, we are proud that at Strode College students consistently achieve outstanding success.


Widest choice of courses

It’s important to choose the course or mix of subjects that suits you and your future ambitions. At Strode we offer the widest choice of A Levels in Somerset as well as vocational courses and apprenticeships.


Outstanding results

Our 2013 outstanding results for A Levels and vocational courses show that our students have once again achieved excellent results and high grades. This was recognised by Ofsted in their June 2012 inspection report and by the League Tables (Jan 2014), which ranked Strode as the best performing college in Somerset for A Levels.


Valuing individuals, maximising potential

We value our students as individuals. This is reflected in our approach to teaching and supporting students which was praised as outstanding by Ofsted in 2012. We are in the top 6% of all state schools and colleges nationally for improving students’ performance at advanced level (ALPS 2013).


Achieving your ambitions

Whether you want to go to university or into employment, your future prospects will be significantly improved by studying at Strode College. Our students are 13% more likely than the national average to get a place at university, including top universities and specialist courses. Many other students go directly into employment with great prospects.
