What The Good Schools Guide 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.

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. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says
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. Started at Eagle House as head of history and English teacher, then housemaster and head of English and drama at Heath Mount School, deputy head at Winchester House and then back to Eagle House as head. 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...
