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.
Prospective Parents' Open Morning: Wednesday 25th May
We are inviting all prospective parents to an open morning on Wednesday 25th May at 10.30am. There will be an opportunity to see the school in action during the morning, followed by a Q&A meeting with the Headteacher and the Chair of Governors. Mrs Gant will also be available to meet, who is leading our transition from Year 4 to 5.
Ofsted feedback meetings
All parents and carers are invited to a meeting to discuss the recent Ofsted report. There will be a meeting in the school hall on Friday 22nd April at 2.30pm, and a second meeting on Tuesday 26th April at 6.30pm. The School Governors and Leaders will be at both meetings, where there will be an opportunity to discuss the report and any concerns or questions that you may have.
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.
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.
