Reminder: Please sign Student Planners! One of the easiest ways of keeping in touch with your child’s progress is to make sure that you have signed their planner. You can leave notes in the planner if you wish to communicate with your child’s tutor or subject teachers and keep an eye on how much homework is being set.
We monitor our student’s planners every week and, when we see your signature, we know that we are supporting each other with your child’s education.
Our life at EGA is a rich one, full of variety, diversity and range.
We know that in this challenging world academic results are only part of the picture. Young people are increasingly being asked to develop skills that make them a fully rounded individual. You will need to be able to present yourself, articulating thoughts and ideas; you will need to be able to work as part of a team, to be creative, to consider alternative viewpoints, to express a cogent and structured argument – the list goes on.
That’s where our weekly Enrichment programme comes in. In the last academic year, we have had over 30 different speakers presenting a wide range of opportunities. We have fantastic links with a huge range of supportive teams, from organisations that will take you to leading universities, to ones that will take you into the Houses of Parliament and put you in front of MPs, to others that can give you work experiences in cutting edge law firms, financial centres and media organisations.
There are always opportunities for you to excel – your step is to develop the confidence to say ‘yes’ to them. And once you have said ‘yes’ once, just keep saying it – who knows where you will end up?
