Open Evening at EPCS

A big thank you to our fantastic students and staff who gave up their time yesterday to make our opening evening a great success.

Numerous parents commented on how knowledgeable and helpful the student tour guides were, whilst others enjoying chatting with students about their learning in different subject areas around the school.

In D/T Food, visitors sampled sweet treats made by our Year 9 Catering students, whilst in Maths, visitors played games and were entertained by Pi-Rex, the Numeracy dinosaur. In PE, visitors were encouraged to get involved in a game of badminton or table tennis, whilst in Science visitors helped students performing a dissection of a pig’s heart (the smell was horrible!) At 7.15, everyone came together in the theatre, and were addressed firstly by the Head boy and Head girl, and then Mrs Cook, Headteacher.

A big thank you to all students and staff involved – we are very proud of you.
