Welcome from the Head Teacher
Eggar’s is a thriving Academy and firmly established as one of the best state schools in Hampshire. Set in a magnificent 38-acre site, the school is an inspiring environment with superb facilities including a bespoke Refectory and a state-of-the-art Astroturf pitch. With a strong, supportive and established Leadership Team we firmly believe in the relentless pursuit of exceptional teaching and learning. We focus on each and every student as an individual, and we are really proud of the strong sense of community which enhances our students experience at the school.
We were inspected in November 2018 and recognised as a good school overall with many outstanding features (see report); personal development, behaviour and welfare were all judged to be outstanding.
‘All students make good progress across the curriculum ... They thrive within the school's excellent inclusive culture and ethos. Students are welcomed, supported and cared for irrespective of background or ability ... Behaviour is outstanding.' (Ofsted Report 2018)
Beyond the curriculum
At the heart of our extensive extra-curricular opportunities is the unique Eggar’s Experience, with more than 50 after school clubs. There is everything from baking extravaganzas to cribbage club; from beginners Spanish to Big Band; from pet therapy club to photography, all developing our students creativity, talents and passion for their lives beyond Eggar’s.
Local community links and beyond!
With our amazing facilities we are able to host local businesses and sports clubs for meetings, matches, training or just a social kick-about. We also have a growing Alumni Association with over 270 former students, some who were at the school in the 1960s! Some have remained local, others have gone further afield to New Zealand and the Caribbean. They are fantastic at supporting the current student cohort offering experience and great advice.
Performing Arts and Sporting Performance
Whether performing on stage in a play or in an orchestra or choir, our creative and talented drama and music departments produce truly inspirational shows and concerts, helped this year with the development of our new Performing Arts facility
We also have an incredibly strong PE Department with 17 different sports on offer to our students. There are many after school clubs and competitive team action throughout the year with over 25 staff from across the school utilising their own talent in coaching or managing teams.
