Open Events 2023

We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming open events. We host both a range of Open Mornings and our annual Open Evening on Thursday 5th October. We look forward very much to welcoming families to EGA and getting to show them more about what our school has to offer its students and community. Open Mornings: Open Mornings run from 9.15am-10:30am and will include a talk from students, the headteacher as well as a tour of lessons around the school. There is no need to book to attend an open morning, please just arrive at our main reception for 9.15am. Tuesday 26th September 9.15am-10:30am Thursday 28th September 9.15am-10:30am Tuesday 10th October 9.15am-10:30am Thursday 12th October 9.15am-10:30am Open Evening - Thursday 5th October 2023 5:00-7:30pm Our open evening is a chance to visit the school and explore the fantastic facilities we have to offer. You will hear from our headteacher,  tour all the areas of the school and meet the amazing members that make up our school community. The open evening is also a great time to be able to discuss curriculum and opportunities with our teachers. Many EGA students also volunteer to support at Open Evening so you will have plenty of chances to ask them any questions you might have. You do not need to book a slot for our open evening. However, to help us ensure a smooth experience, we suggest arriving towards the start of one of the following slots: 5:00-5:45pm / 5:45-6:30pm / 6:30-7:15pm We recommend attending both Open Evening and an Open Morning to get the full experience of what is on offer at EGA as both events offer a different experience.
Book of the Month - September Posted on: 8/09/2023

Book of the Month - September

GENRE: Science Fiction, Adventure, Short fiction   Back in May this year, Green Rising by Lauren James was EGA Library’s book of the month.For our return to school, this month’s chosen title is also by Lauren James and is called The Starlight Watchmaker. The book is published by Barrington Stoke, a really important and respected publisher based in Edinburgh. Barrington Stoke publishes short books, usually no more than 130 pages, aimed at reluctant or dyslexic readers. They are physically designed to be easy to read, with large, widely spaced out type and coloured pages The stories are just as exciting as longer novels and written by established, popular authors including Malorie Blackman, Melvin Burgess, Eve Ainsworth and Marcus Sedgwick.   Hugo is an old android, abandoned by his owner on a strange planet. He sets up a business fixing watches. When a student from a local private school brings him a watch to fix, Hugo discovers that quantum energy is being stolen from watches, and with the help of fellow robots, humans and aliens, he begins the search for the suspected terrorist (they believe that only a terrorist would need that much quantum energy to make a bomb) trying to destroy the planet where they live, work and study.Alongside Hugo, student Dorian and his friends attempt to find the thief Through their investigation they meet and interrogate a diverse array of characters expertly and fantastically imagined by Lauren James.   If you are a reader who prefers a shorter novel, or a less confident reader, try this book or any other in the Barrington Stoke range, kept in the library in the ‘Easy Reading’ section.
