the weekly newsletter from EHS
10 September 2021
It has been wonderful to welcome pupils back to school this week, and the buzz in the corridors, the playground, and lessons is fantastic. We are all looking forward to a term filled with learning, fun, excitement, and multiple opportunities to participate in school events.
Not only have we welcomed over 140 new pupils across the whole school this week, but we have also always welcomed several new members of staff:
Mr Richard Hunt Teacher of Art
Mr Phil Ford Subject Lead for DT and Textiles
Mrs Jaswinder Kaur Teacher of Biology and Chemistry
Miss Megan Stephenson Teacher of History
Ms Jody Smith Teacher of Music
Mrs Victoria Davies Teacher of Prep
Mx Charlie Parker Trainee teacher - Classics
Mrs Avril Brookes also returns this term to teach Chemistry
They join a team of dedicated staff working together to help your children flourish and develop into the strong, independent, and forward-thinking leaders we know they can be. I am also delighted to announce that Mr Nathan Southall has been promoted to a new role in school, Director of Systems Innovation. Mr Southall has taken charge of the implementation of our new management information system and related software systems.
We are looking forward to introducing you to these new software systems. They will make the sharing of information, communicating your daughter’s progress and successes even clearer and easier. Letters outlining how to access the new parent portal will be sent in the next few days.
We have learned through two lockdowns that the EHS community is incredibly strong even when we are not physically in school. But schools only really come to life when the pupils are here, and as I watched the pupils enter the school on Monday, I felt an even greater sense of hope and optimism at the start of a new academic year than I normally do. I cannot wait to see what will be achieved by all this year.
