The Importance of Being Weird

10th June 2022

The  importance of being weird. At Edenhurst we do things differently. As I write this I am in my office and it is 9:27pm on a Thursday. That is not because I am a workaholic, it is because the children in my school are camping on the school field. Weird! Some might think that this…

The latter is very significant as we are very far outside of the catchment area of Haberdashers’ Adams’ Grammar School and Newport Grammar and this means that the bar is exceptionally high.
