Condover Hall 2017

Posted on 21st Sep 2017 by Chris Barnes

This was the fourth annual residential that we have offered to our Prep 6 children and it has now become an eagerly-anticipated event at the beginning of the school year.  Once again the children returned, to use Adam M's words, 'tired, dirty and having had little other words, it was amazing!'

Welcome to the new School Year!

It’s been a pleasure to see how well all the children have settled back into school life and we extend a particularly warm welcome to all our many new starters and their families throughout the school. I know all the form and subject teachers are looking forward to meeting their children’s parents at our Parents’ Evenings in October.

Condover Hall 2017: Day 2

Posted on 14th Sep 2017 by Chris Barnes

It's 8:30am and I'm beginning my blog now because once it gets to around 10pm I will not be able to remember some of the things that have happened today.  The bad thing - if you could call it that - about residential trips such as this is that we do so much during each day, so when you sit down and reflect on the events of the day you're left thinking 'wow!' and trying to pick out the parts that you want to use in a blog or other piece of writing.

Herewith my last blog of this school year - it’s hard to believe we are here already and I think this is a sign of how busy and productive the last term has been.

You will of course hear about the range of achievements, developments and successes of this year at Speech Day on September 19th, but for now I think it is worth reflecting briefly on a few highlights.

Throughout Edenhurst it has been a fortnight of transitions...yesterday evening, the new Reception parents met with Mrs. Hodgkinson to find out more about how school life will change for their child in September.  With 16 children joining Reception and a number joining us at other points within the school, we continue to grow and prosper.

Deputy Head's Blog: Look Wide and then Look Wider

Posted on 15th Jun 2017 by Chris Barnes

It is now only a matter of four weeks until another school year comes to an end.  As I write this, the children in the Prep Forms are mid-way through their end-of-year exams, breathing a sigh of relief as each one is finished.  Prep 6 are in the process of visiting their new senior schools: finding out about new routines, new form teachers, new houses and what will happen in September.  There is a palpable air of excitement and nervousness at the same time.

Another half term has passed in the usual busy and productive fashion of Edenhurst, with many events and achievements to celebrate. Of course, the biggest news this month has been the receipt of the full ISI Inspection report.

Edenhurst was visited in the last week of last term, as part of the current cycle of inspections, combining a ‘Compliance’ check, an EYFS inspection (Nursery) and an Educational Quality inspection (School).
