Remembering John Eggar
Every year our School's long history is celebrated by our Year 7 students at the Church of the Holy Rood in Holybourne. On November 7 the students walked in a crocodile to the village church where a service was held to remember our Founder John Eggar, a local farmer.
Under a Trust Deed dated 21 March 1638, he realised his idea of providing a school to serve the needs of its community. The first Head Teacher was appointed in 1642 – the date that appears on the school badge and which is proudly displayed on the current Eggar’s School blazer.
The whole service helped the Year 7s really appreciate the amazing history of their new school.
Wednesday 27th November 2019 - The school is open as normal following a successful repair of our water system. https://t.co/LQz0ZsZKmm 5:52 AM - 27 Nov 2019
A pipe burst at 0725 resulting in all water being isolated and no facilities. Engineers attended and now in the process of fixing. We hope to open tomorrow but please check website at 0600 for confirmation. Thank you for your patience and understanding. https://t.co/Ua9eV7qZUO 12:54 PM - 26 Nov 2019
