Junior Maths Challenge Success
We are delighted to report great success with our young mathematicians at Edwinstree in the national junior maths challenge. We achieved several bronze and silver certificates. One of our Year 6 pupils gained access to the Kangaroo round, and one 6 year pupil to the Olympiad, which are much more challenging papers taking place in June. We wish them both every success.
Today we took over 400 pupils from Buntingford to Ely Cathedral for our Easter service. We had nearly 50 pupils either performing in the choir, reading, playing in the orchestra, or dancing. Reverend Hill also joined us to lead the service. It was a magnificent day, and one of which the school should feel proud.
World Book Day 2016
The children of Edwinstree turned out in amazing costumes for World Book Day again this year. We all paraded through the streets of Buntingford to show the town the fantastic imagination of the pupils and staff at Edwinstree. There are many photos to enjoy in the Gallery.
Year 8 Battlefields Trip
Molly, Leah and Josh in Year 8 have returned to school today after spending an excellent four days looking around the battlefields of the Somme and the Ypres Salient. We had the most amazing time, and were in complete awe of all that we saw. More to follow in the next newsletter.
An exciting curriculum
Education is a journey and no child will be left behind at Edwinstree. Our curriculum is exciting, diverse and challenging and taught by enthusiastic and professional staff. We offer a rich cornucopia of experiences both inside and outside the classroom.
Beyond the classroom
All of our pupils are encouraged to make full use of the school’s facilities and to support the wide range of extra-curricular activities that we offer. Edwinstree has a strong reputation in Art, Music, Drama and Sport.
Proud of our school
Edwinstree is part of a successful three tier system and the majority of our children transfer to Freman College. Pupils moving on in Year 8 achieve higher levels than the national standards expected of pupils at the end of Year 9.
