At Etone College, we are committed to making sure we deliver the very best curriculum to our pupils. To that end, we are extremely proud to play our part in engaging with the latest educational research, supporting our external partners with training educator and sharing our practices across other schools.
On Wednesday 8th March we were delighted to host a visit from the Department for Education for them to explore best practices within schools which can then be shared across the country.
The day started with our guests touring the school as they looked to see what a day in the life of Etone College would hold. Just like a normal day, there was a real buzz in school with an environment that was focused on learning. The visitors were extremely impressed and commented on how engaged pupils were in their learning. Whilst we would always expect this, it was great to show external visitors what being an Etone Learner is all about.
As part of the day, our visitors met with Matrix Academy Trust CEO – Lynsey Draycott, Headteacher Mr Smith and Etone staff to share some of those fantastic practices from both Etone and the Trust and consider how these could impact other schools.
Finally, our guests met with Etone pupils to explore what life at Etone was like for our learners. Whilst already complimentary of Etone, the visitors were overwhelmingly impressed with our pupils and commented particularly on their “dedication to learning and the intrinsic value they see in their education”.
With such positive praise for both Etone college and Matrix Academy Trust, it is clear to see why we are so proud of Etone and particularly our amazing pupils.
