We Will Remember Them

We are extremely proud of Lance Bombadier Jake Sabin (Y11) of the ACF and Cadet Cameron Wilschere (Y10) of the Air Cadets for leading our silent reflection for those who have served today. We also thank the Y7 students who marked this occasion so respectfully on the plaza.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

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.
