As you may have seen in our earlier article we have been celebrating the achievements of our staff this week. With a return to normality following the Pandemic this year has been a busy one for Etone. We have received an extremely positive Ofsted report confirming Etone as a continuingly strong provider in the area, achieved the highest reported progress 8 score in Nuneaton, achieving in line with the top 20% of the country and have contributed to a vast array of schemes and initiatives including engaging national research as part of the Education Endowment Foundation. Whilst these achievements do not stop there we know that it wouldn’t be possible without the hard work of our staff members.
On Friday 2nd December we had the chance to recognise some of our longest serving staff members as part of a celebration of excellence and opportunity to develop our skills as a school and as part of the Matrix Academy Trust. We would like to take the time here to say a big congratulations to our staff members who have served for 17 years or longer as a member of Etone College. Whilst there is a whole body of staff who work hard to ensure Etone is the place it is, clearly these individuals have been a part of the journey with Etone longer than most and have flown the Etone flag high every step of the way. A big congratulations goes out to; Mrs Beasley, Mr Thornley Yeats, Mr Bowen and Mrs Choudry along with a special mention to our longest serving staff member Mr Scragg who holds the record at 25 years and counting.
Whilst the achievements of all of our staff are important it is clear that these individuals will have had a lasting impact on the town and local area. With perhaps some residents having siblings, parents and other family members taught by the same member of staff. No matter if those staff are teachers or a member of the support team they work equally as hard in delivering the vision for the school and for that we thank you. Long may Etone be your home from home.
