Eagle House School
A safe and happy environment
Eagle’s boarding house is fully co-educational and for boarders aged 7-13. The family-run boarding house is at the heart of the School’s operations, and all boarders receive expert care from a dedicated staff group who strive to provide a secure and upbeat environment for all. The flexi-boarding system and our after-school care facilities enable parents to collect their children safe in the knowledge that they are in the trusty hands of a specialist staff group.
A fine academic record
Eagle House received an ‘Excellent’ rating in a recent ISI Inspection, signalling that the School places emphasis on all spheres of learning. Scholarships to senior schools are regularly awarded to pupils. Pupils achieve creditable results in the Common Entrance examinations, and teachers are focused on assisting children, irrespective of their abilities, to grow in confidence and become something special in the future.
Learning for Life
The School’s Golden Eagle programme offers an unbelievable range of activities which promote leadership and independence, while allowing the School to fully utilise its magnificent environment. With the Golden Eagle Awards, children are expected to participate in all areas of School life, and emphasis is placed on outdoor education. There is a focus which encompasses enrichment, sport, appreciation for the great outdoors and achievement, and children are expected to respect that variety is pivotal when it comes to being a rounded, confident and responsible individual.
Music and drama are very much a part of life at Eagle House; children learn instruments, perform in plays, and there are many choir and instrumental groups. Children profit from expert coaching in all different areas of sport, another key area at the School. Exceptional levels are achieved by all children in art, design and food technology.
The School has a Philosophy programme, in which all children from Year 2 are a part of. The School aims to establish community spirit where individuals support and look out for one another both between and across the year groups. Eagle House achieves this through the Buddy System, which pairs younger pupils with older pupils, for example those from Year 5 with those from Year 8. Friendships are created across the age groups, and this is quite unique.
