Stratford-on-Avon is a local government district of southern Warwickshiremarker in Englandmarker.

The district is named "Stratford-on-Avon" to distinguish it from its main town of Stratford-upon-Avonmarker where the district council is based, although this name often causes confusion [53169].

The district is mostly rural and covers most of the southern half of Warwickshire. As well as Stratford, the district also includes the towns of Alcestermarker, Southammarker, and Shipston-on-Stourmarker, and the large villages of Studleymarker and Wellesbournemarker.

The district was formed on 1 April 1974 by the merger of the borough of Stratford-upon-Avonmarker, Alcester Rural District, Shipston-on-Stour Rural Districtmarker, Southam Rural Districtmarker and a majority of Stratford-upon-Avon Rural District.

Education

In the state sector, children start school in the school year (1 September to 31 August) in which they turn five. They stay at primary school for seven years until they are eleven. As part of Warwickshire, Stratford-on-Avon still maintains the grammar school system. In the final year of primary school, children are given the opportunity of sitting the eleven plus exam in order to compete for a place at one of the grammar schools.

The grammar schools in the district are King Edward VImarker, Stratford-upon-Avon Grammar School for Girlsmarker and Alcester Grammarmarker.

The area gets the best GCSE results overall in Warwickshire.
