You can register at any time. For nursery, Reception and Year 3 it’s best to do this as soon as you know that you want your child to come to Edgeborough. Usually prospective parents follow this process:
– Contact the Admissions Registrar on 01252 792495 or https://www.edgeborough.co.uk/come-and-visit-us/
– Review the information pack that we send you about the School.
– Book to visit the school, have a tour and meet the Headmaster.
– Register your child (a £75 registration fee is required).
– Book a taster day for your child to visit the school.
– Following a meeting with the Headmaster, we are usually able to offer a place to your child.
Yes, we currently have a bus route from Medsted, Beech, Alton, Chawton, Bentley and Dockenfield to the School. If there is enough interest then other bus routes will be considered.
This depends on the part of the school that you child attends. Please speak to your child’s form teacher to find out more.
Our pupils learn French from Nursery onwards. Latin is taught to some pupils in Years 6, 7 and 8.
We are very proud to offer our pupils an extensive selection of extra curricular activities. Click here for more information.
There is no school on Saturday but we sometimes have sports activities or residential trips that your child will want to attend. Parents will be notified of these well in advance.
Your first point of contact should always be your child’s class teacher. If you would prefer to speak to someone else then the following people will be more than happy to help you:
Miss Goble (Head of Years 1 & 2)
Mr Smith (Deputy Head)
All lost property, which is subsequently found is returned to the pupils if named. Unnamed items are collected and made available to parents twice a week.
We really encourage parents to visit the school and see what’s happening. There are regular Parents’ Association events as well as the annual Arts Festival, Open Days, Music Concerts and Theatre productions.
The school offers a restricted number of means-tested bursaries to appropriate pupils.
We value our small class sizes and high teacher pupil ratio. Our largest class size is currently 17 pupils.
We are not a selective school (which highlights the teachers and pupils efforts in our outstanding academic success). However, we always meet with parents and pupils before they join the school to ensure that this is the right place for each child’s development. We conduct an informal assessment during the taster day and we ask to see a copy of your child’s latest school report.
