We believe that all our students are able and talented. The Eggar's Experience is a ten-point challenge designed to give our students the opportunity to show and develop their abilities, talents and skills, complementing their academic work. It gives them the chance to record the significant moments in their lives, both inside and outside school. We believe it is an excellent opportunity for all students to broaden their experiences, learn new and important skills and grow as a person.
The Eggar's Experience e-portolio is based in the cloud on Office 365. It allows students to access and personalise their portfolio with their own personal login, updating it as they attempt to complete the challenges. Take a look at the template in pdf format below.
In particular we would like to highlight challenge 4, Join the Club. We believe this has the potential to enrich the experience of all our students through extra-curricular activities. Staff run after school clubs eleven times a year across a wide variety of topics - from photography to cribbage club, from beginners Spanish to girls' rugby - developing our students' skills to be an active citizen in today's world.

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
