Exciting news! Our pre-loved school uniform shop will be opening on Wednesday 4th October 2017 between 3-4pm and every Wednesday thereafter.

Last Friday, all students at Easthampstead Park Community School took part in a criss cross day! Normal lessons were suspended for the day, and students worked on different themed cross curricular challenges in their year groups. Whilst Year 7 students took part in a Bike It day, Year 8 learnt about the history of protest and people fighting for their rights. Years 9 and 10 had exciting sessions with the emergency services, whilst Year 11 under took hands on science practicals in support of their GCSEs. A fun and educational day was had by all; hopefully the photos below will give you a taster of what we got up to!
A big thank you to the parents who allowed their children to be ambassadors tonight for our open evening. We received many compliments about our student helpers, in particular about their infectious enthusiasm and helpfulness. We are very lucky to have students who are so fantastically dedicated to their school.
If you are a prospective parent with a child in Year 5 or 6 and were either not able to attend our open evening, or did attend the open evening and are keen to learn more about the workings of our school, why not sign up for an open morning tour? Tours are running from 9am-10.30 daily, from 2nd-13th October. Contact the school reception to book your place!

Yesterday evening, Year 9 parents and students attended our GCSE Aspirations evening. Mr Puttick talked about the importance of students being resilient in their learning, having a growth mindset and not giving up when the going gets tough. Miss Pettipas, Mrs Devine and Mr Brown then talked specifically about GCSE English, Maths and Science, what students need to do to succeed in each subject, and how their parents can help to support their studies. A big theme throughout the presentations was the importance of students being independent, and taking responsibility for their learning. If parents have any questions about GCSEs, we ask that you contact either your child’s tutor, or subject teacher in the first instance. We wish all of Year 9s every success as they embark on their GCSE journey at EPCS!
Yesterday saw our ‘Matilda’ cast get stuck into their first rehearsals with Miss Murphy. We saw some excellent character portrayals with the cast participating in some character development workshops. See if you can spot our Miss Trunchball, Freya Smith!
Tickets will be going on sale next month for our performance on Weds 6th December in the Downshire Theatre, EPCS 6-8pm.
