Strands most recent full Ofsted inspection was in October 2011. The inspection reported that Strand was a good school with many outstanding features. Some key quotes from the report are
"Outstanding care, guidance and support
and a good curriculum tailored to individual needs ensure that almost all pupils make good progress".
"Attainment is consistently above national levels."
"Higher ability pupils are doing increasingly well and ....some prepare for the Level 6 tests now available".

"All aspects of pupils’ personal development are at least good, as at the time of the
previous inspection, and some elements are outstanding."
"Pupils proudly represent their diverse communities
while enjoying school life harmoniously"
"This is a really great school…our sons are flourishing in the inclusive, warm, encouraging environment and going from strength to strength academically.
