Oliver (2016)

This week we catch up with Edenhurst alumnus Oliver (2016).

Current school: Ellesmere College (2016)

What was your favourite thing about Edenhurst? 

Friends, sports, trips...

What other memories do you have from your time at Edenhurst? 

Ski trip, the Year 6 trip to Condover Hall, the French trip, and the Spanish trip to Barcelona.

Which activities did you most enjoy at Edenhurst? 

The sport!

How did taking part in trips and outings (including foreign trips) help you develop?

Friendship with others, learnt how to plan for myself and be independent.

What did you think of the teachers at Edenhurst? 

The teachers were always there to help if I was struggling.  They had time for me.  I didn't have a favourite teacher but I always looked forward to Science and PE.

In what ways did the school help prepare you for the 11+ exam? 

School gave us papers to go home with to practice.  We also had booster classes until the exams finished, and the teachers gave extra help to some people during break times.

What useful tips would you give to other pupils preparing to leave Edenhurst? 

If you can, then definitely go on the trips.  Don't wish your time away.  Just do your best in every subject.

How would you sum up your experience at Edenhurst in one word?
