Welcome from our Head of School

Welcome to Stratford Hall!

Thus far, the 2020-2021 school year has been unlike any other. Stratford Hall continues to offer an education appropriate for the times. Our commitment to our mission and values remain a priority: Stratford Hall prepares its students to be life-long learners and to pursue a life engaged in Creativity, Activity and Service. Our 20th year has been, and will be, as normal as can be permitted in a global pandemic. We are challenged to think as innovatively as possible to focus on the education and support of our students as well as the safety of all who make that education possible.

Our inquiry-based programme is driven by the attributes of the IB learner profile. Stratford Hall students strive to be principled, knowledgeable, inquirers, thinkers, open-minded, caring, reflective, communicators, risk-takers and balanced. Our students are encouraged to be curious, to ask questions, to investigate, and to realize that failure is just part of the learning process. It does not mean the end of the process.

Along with a deep engagement in academic pursuits, our students also explore their artistic, physical, social, and emotional selves. For parents who are considering Stratford Hall in your search for an independent school, I’d like to encourage you to explore our website to discover the way we deliver the International Baccalaureate programme to our Kindergarten to Grade 12 students.

While for the time being it may be virtual, we look forward to your visit to our campus and to the opportunity to show you our comprehensive programme in action. You will see happy, engaged students who truly love being at school. You will see thoughtful, critical thinkers, who are becoming the next global leaders with vision and courage.
