King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon - (c.1295)
With known origins in the thirteenth-century, this school was re-founded on 28th June, 1553 by the young King Edward VI. Since Edward died nine days later from tuberculosis, it is therefore the last school to bear the king's name.

But this school - still educating boys in the original half-timbered schoolroom given for its use in the re-foundation charter (together with more modern buildings) - has another claim to fame. It would have been the school to which the eldest son of a sixteenth-century mayor of the town must have come. The mayor's name, John Shakespeare; his eldest son, William.

The Old Boys Association of King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon
The Association's mission is to help Old Boys of King Edward VI School in Stratford-upon-Avon keep in touch with the school, the town and each other to the mutual benefit of all.

The Willows C of E Primary School - (1846)
The Willows Church of England Primary School was founded in 1846 making it the oldest primary school in Stratford. It was originally located where ‘Scholars Court’ now is by the traffic lights on the Alcester Road where the school was affectionately known as ‘The Traffic Lights School’. We are fortunate to have been able to retain the original foundation stone and bell.

The school moved to its present location in Willows North and the buildings were completed in 1973. There are eleven classrooms, a large hall, two activity areas, a learning resources suite which also accommodates our new library, a music room, a sensory garden and our own heated outdoor swimming pool. We also have our own kitchen where school meals are prepared.

During 2008/09 we received a lottery grant and built a ‘mini Globe theatre’ for developing our speaking and listening skills through performance.

Stratford-upon-Avon Primary School - (1883)
Many visitors to our school comment upon the atmosphere of happy, purposeful activity found in the classrooms and around the school. Within the school there is a passionate belief in children receiving a challenging and inspiration education. We are very fortunate in having an enthusiastic committed and hard-working team of staff and governors whose first priority is the education and well being of the children. We work hard at our school to enable all our children to appreciate the reason for learning and attach great importance to the development of their individuality and regard for tolerance, courtesy and respect.

 

The Croft Preparatory School - (1933)
The Croft is an independent, co-educational day school for children from 2 to 11 years old, situated on the outskirts of Stratford upon Avon. Founded in 1933, the School occupies a large rural site with superb facilities and extensive playing fields, offering children some of the most exciting educational opportunities in the area.

A family-based school, The Croft benefits from all the hallmarks of a traditional preparatory school, typically providing specialist teaching in small groups, where good discipline and a wider knowledge of the world around us, both spiritual and geographical, is encouraged. Music, Sport and Drama each play an important part in the curriculum, whilst Shakespeare, whose Birthplace is only one and a half miles away, has a profound influence on the School and its activities. The resulting high educational standards provide the all-round excellence which is at the heart of the School.

 

St Gregory's R C Infant & Junior School
St Gregory’s School is situated in the parish of St Gregory the Great, a Benedictine parish of Douai Abbey.

Thomas Jolyffe Primary School
I am proud to lead a school community that is committed to doing the very best that it can for every child and every family, ensuring that through respect and understanding we motivate each child to achieve his or her personal best.

We know that school is an essential grounding for children’s future lives, but we also know the value of the here and now, and we hope that each day, every child will find school to be an engaging, stimulating and enjoyable experience where the joy of learning together is paramount.

That, of course, is a never ending process and that is why our school motto, ‘To be the best that we can be’ is so important. - M Cocker, Head Teacher

 

Bridgetown Primary School - (1964)
The aim of Bridgetown School is to provide the best possible education for its pupils, to strive to enable them to achieve their full potential and to exceed their expectations across a broad spectrum of activities. Children should leave the school fully prepared in terms of the specific curriculum subjects, in terms of experience and achievement in a range of activities and to be socially and emotionally equipped for the next stage of their education and their lives in the community.

 

Stratford Preparatory School
Stratford Preparatory School offers the advantage of being small. Each teacher knows every one of our children. Every child has individual needs and in a school of this size we can take care of them. Our aim is to provide a caring community in which each individual is valued.

A family orientated environment. Parents are genuinely encouraged to participate. The relationship between staff and pupils is seen as the basis for growth and achievement in both academic and social terms. The two are complementary. We are concerned to devise a balanced curriculum, which will suit the needs of every pupil, and to operate a system of pastoral care, which attempts to encourage each child to achieve his or her full potential.

High academic standards. All our teachers are graduates and we achieve excellent results, yet we have no entrance exam and there is no selection later in the school.

A certain amount of formality, with an ' old fashioned' emphasis on good behaviour and respect for others.

A straight forward approach to education. We simply work hard to provide the education we would want for our own children.

King Edward's is a traditional Grammar School that provides an academic curriculum for able children. However, whilst King Edward's has roots that go back some 450 years we have not lost sight of the present day. At King Edward's we recognise that in order to succeed in the workplace of the future, children need more than academic results and that is why we place a strong emphasis on extra-curricular activities. Pupils at King Edward's can develop their team building and leadership skills through our flourishing Combined Cadet Force, by undertaking the Duke of Edinburgh Award, by participating in our extensive House system, by playing county level sport, or by taking part in our Drama and Music: both of which are produced and performed to professional standards.

Welcome to the Lawrence Sheriff website. I hope that as you explore the site you will get a flavour of the unique culture that underlies the school.

'The way we do things around here' also involves developing the whole person, whether it be through sport, music, drama, art or the many other clubs and societies that flourish within the school. It also involves playing a full part in the life of the community that the school serves. Our aim is to be the "community grammar school" that plays an energetic part in the community of Rugby - Dr P R Kent, Headteacher.

Howell's School, Llandaff/Ysgol Howell Llandaf - (1860)
Howell's School, Llandaff (GDST) in Cardiff, caters for girls aged 3 -18 and for boys aged 16 -18. It has a longstanding reputation for academic excellence as the foremost girls' school in Wales. It provides tremendous "value added" in terms of public examination results, which are consistently higher than predicted in independent assessments. Since 2005, boys have been admitted to the Sixth Form College.

Founded in 1860, the school is housed in the original buildings of great character as well as more modern extensions and nearby buildings such as Roald Dahl's childhood home.

Hywelian Guild
In 1906 the Hywelian Guild was founded by 12 enthusiastic ex-pupils and members of Staff, and the Headmistress of the School, Miss Kendall, with the aim of keeping former pupils in touch with both the School and one another, to further the interests of the school and to help members who needed financial or professional assistance.

A voluntary-controlled Church in Wales primary school for children between the ages of 3-11.

This was where the First World War prime minister and statesman, David Lloyd George, received his early education.

 

Ruthin School - (1284)
Ruthin School is located in the beautiful Vale of Clwyd, an inspirational environment with Snowdon and the Snowdonia National Park nearby. Its history and ethos span 725 years and being a small school means that the family atmosphere can still prevail. Our commitment is to encourage the potential of every pupil by "focusing on the individual" child.

Old Ruthinian Association
We are justly proud of our record of support to Ruthin School, which since the last War has seen donations of materials, service, skills and finance. The Assocation has a sound relationship with School, which, through the application and dedication of the Staff has brought about the current sound position. The School is full, results are the best ever and standards are still rising!
