What says..

Up to 80 per cent to Wellington – this is, after all, part of the deal. We were particularly struck by how teachers of all ages were fired up by new ideas, welcoming change and educational debate – Eagle House clearly no place for moss gatherers... ‘Over my dead body’ were the young librarian’s words when we asked if there were plans to defect to e-readers.

What the school says...

At Eagle House our pupils are Learning for Life. Children are central to all we do. Our school is a way of life for all pupils. We unashamedly offer lots and know that busy children are happy and fulfilled children. We are in the business of teaching children to a high standard, turning them into confident and interested learners but the Eagle House experience offers more than this.

Learning for Life means that children benefit from an all-round education. They can feel confident in the classroom, on the games field, on the stage, in the concert hall, in the community. We want our children to learn and each individual is given the chance to stretch him or herself in every area. We instil a desire for knowledge, a respect for each other and the world around them and the motivation to succeed in all they do.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

What The Good Schools Guide says

Headmaster

Since 2006, Mr Andrew Barnard BA (40s). Educated at Christ’s Hospital, thence to Sheffield for a degree in archaeology (claims he ‘still gets excited by a pile of earth’). ‘Dabbled’ in the restaurant business but was diverted to a PGCE via a stint helping out in various prep schools.

He loves poetry, especially the Liverpool poets. Favourite author? Julian Barnes. Married to Sarah, who comes from a dynasty of teachers – no doubt it is from them that she has learned to embody grace under pressure: serving lunch to the nursery children, shepherding excited girls as they mass...
