United by Pride & Passion; In pursuit of Excellence”
As you may have guessed, Austen gets its name from Jane Austen, the much loved novelist who we associate with Chawton, the house where she lived for 8 years.
Congratulations to all of the students and staff in Austen for currently holding the House Cup!
I have had the pleasure to lead Austen House and witness the drive and determination pupils have displayed throughout the school to do their very best, from winning sports days to raising money for our chosen charities. The very ethos of the House system is to create a community that works collaboratively as a team, whether you are a year 7, year 11, or a member of staff.
The whole school community has embraced this ethos and it was once again magnificently represented in an overwhelming House assembly at the end of the year. I know that competition will continue to be fierce this year but I am confident that we will all do our very best to hold on to the trophy for another year!
Some Year 7s have gained both practical skills and confidence on the road this week with intensive cycle training through the brilliant Bikeability! https://t.co/fosZzulDHy #WeAreEggars 5:35 PM - 13 May 2021
