Principal’s Post

Welcome back to all pupils at the EGS! A lot happened during the past week since we returned from the half term break. Year 11s continuing to be focused in the classroom, attendance figures continue to rise thanks to hard work of our excellent attendance team and staff. Lessons have been exceptionally calm and purposeful, let’s continue the trend this week.
