I would like to extend a very warm welcome to St Egwin’s C.E. Middle School website.
Whether you are a pupil, a parent, a prospective pupil or parent, a teacher or a friend of our school, we are pleased to share a snapshot of our school with you. We hope you will find all the information you may need - and maybe more besides!
Our school is situated in the market town of Evesham, Worcestershire and is set in thirteen acres of grounds, providing large playing fields and opportunities for outside learning. Over recent years the school has benefitted from major refurbishments and enhancements. These include a two-storey extension providing a new Art and Design Technology suite, a new Geography base and a conference room. We have a splendid multi-purpose sports hall that is used extensively by both the school and the local community and newly re-fitted science laboratory, library, and ICT suite.
St Egwin’s is a “good school that cares very much for the well-being of its pupils” (Ofsted 2010). We endeavour to create and maintain a happy, caring and purposeful atmosphere. We promote the “work hard, play hard” philosophy. At St Egwin’s pupils do well, exceeding the national targets for pupil progress. Indeed, this was recognised in our last Ofsted Inspection in June 2013 when the school was judged as “Outstanding” in every area.
We offer a wide range of extra-curricular and enrichment activities and we support the social development of young people with programmes such as Youth Challenge, Young Leaders, Peer Mentors and Pupil Forum. Creativity is valued and we encourage pupils to become involved in music, drama, dance, sports and art. One of the highlights of our year is our drama production at the Evesham Arts Centre.
St Egwin’s is at the heart of the Evesham community. We have strong links with our feeder schools and with Prince Henry’s High School to where most of our pupils transfer at the end of Year 8. Pupils are encouraged to become involved with their local community taking part in a variety of projects. Our children are tomorrow’s citizens of the world; we foster links with schools in Europe and Tanzania.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our website. If you can’t find what you are looking for, would like more information or would like to visit the school please contact the headteacher’s PA, Sam Duckett, by telephone or email.
With my best wishes,
Mrs C S Kennedy
