About Colosseum

“Together we are bolder, brighter, better” is the motto Colosseum’s Student Ambassadors have chosen for the College. They felt it was important to recognise that, in Colosseum, working together as a team is the source of our strength. We really value the encouragement and support that comes within tutor groups and within the College. Colosseum’s colour is yellow and the student ambassadors thought that was appropriate because it is a bright and bold colour. The student ambassadors liked the idea that through being together in the College, all students can aspire to improve themselves. Colosseum students are not afraid to take risks and they aim to be bright in all senses of the word.


About Mr. Strathdene, Head of Colosseum

I am an English teacher but also teach Classics at A-level. Parents whose children I do not have the good fortune to teach may also have seen me at the excellent Parent/Teacher Book Club (Cover Up) run by Mrs Ward in the Library. Or perhaps in the Viola Section of the brilliant Fortismere Community Orchestra. Or possibly playing keyboard in the amazing school musical.

Students can find me in the Head of College office in South Wing. Parents are encouraged to email me with any concerns. In the first instance, your child's tutor is your first port of call. But I believe good communication between school and home is vital, so please do contact me for anything that falls beyond your child's tutor's remit.

Student Ambassadors

The Colosseum Student Ambassadors meet fortnightly and set the agenda for the college. If you are interested in becoming an ambassador, please contact your form tutor.
