Expectations and aspirations are high at The Peak Academy.
I am in Year 10, a member of the school council and Head Pupil of a very special school.
London is 91 miles (146 km) east-southeast of Stroud.
Although not formally part of the town, the parishes of Rodborough, Cainscross and Ebley are contiguous with Stroud and are generally considered as official suburbs.
The Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounds the town, and the Cotswold Way path passes by it to the west.
It lies 10 miles (16 km) south of the city of Gloucester, 14 miles (23 km) south-southwest of Cheltenham, 13 miles (21 km) west-northwest of Cirencester and 26 miles (42 km) north-northeast of the city of Bristol.
