Following on from their incredible performance at Glastonbury which hit our local news, Ezra Collective won The Mercury Prize last night. This is such fabulous news and we are delighted for our ‘Old Boys’ and their band mates.
At the awards ceremony, Femi's speech thanked people and organisations that gave support during their musical journey ….and again, we are so proud to get a mention and know how our passionate music department was one of the various platforms that helped springboard these ex-students to where they are now. He emphasises how important all our local youth groups and services are in the UK, believing in and giving young people a chance.
Mr Escott, who is still teaching within our music department, was one of their music teachers when they were here in school and he recently got the chance to meet up with Ezra Collective where they
reminisced about rehearsals in room C12 at Lower School, EGS music tours and concerts in our main hall; Mr Escott is pleased to say the boys still have very fond memories of their days at Grammar.
These brothers, Femi & TJ and their band mates are a shining example of what dedication and hard work can achieve, from the Year 7 Band to Mercury music prize-winners !
(YouTube clip 2.5 minutes long – a super delighted Ezra Collective moment and a lovely tribute to youth services inc an EGS mention at 1.35)
Ezra Collective is composed of drummer and bandleader Femi Koleoso, bassist TJ Koleoso, keyboardist Joe Armon-Jones, trumpeter Ife Ogunjobi, and tenor saxophonist James Mollison.

Enfield Grammar School would like to congratulate all our GCSE students on some outstanding personal successes, including impressive grades and excellent progress.
We are incredibly proud of the commitment, resilience and hard work demonstrated by our students in the face of the disruption they have experienced in recent years. They have truly embodied our school motto of “Tant Que Je Puis” (“As much as I can”).
We are pleased to have begun enrolling our own students and welcoming students from other schools to join our Sixth Form as it enters an exciting new chapter; accepting female students for the first time.
We remain open to applications on a first-come-first served basis so please explore our website for details of our courses and how to apply.
Mr Lamb, Headteacher at Enfield Grammar School, commented:
“It has been such a pleasure to see our students flourish over the last five years and I was delighted to congratulate them today on some superb outcomes. We are incredibly proud to have witnessed their journeys from boys, to the fine young men they have become. We look forward to witnessing their continued academic and personal successes whether with us or in pastures new. We have really valued the partnership and support of the parents of our students and we thank our teachers and support staff for their ongoing commitment to the boys’ achievements.”
We would like to welcome, Katie, our first female sixth former to enrol with us this year!
Having changed our admissions criteria for entrance into our sixth form from this academic year, it is with immense pleasure we can now welcome girls, and create another history milestone for the school; since 1558 Enfield Grammar School has been a boys only school......until now!
If you are a girl, about to embark on her Year 12 education and are still undecided about which sixth form to got to, then why not join Katie in making history, and contact us.

A-Level Results Day Press Release 2023:
Enfield Grammar School A-Level students enjoyed another year of good results in their sixth form programmes. This year has seen grade boundaries return to 2019 levels (without any COVID
We are incredibly proud of the achievements of all our students including the 5 students who achieved straight A*-A grades to those for whom lower grades represent a significant personal
success. This is despite all the uncertainty over the last few years.
We continually strive to ensure each boy is able to give ‘As much as he can’ no matter what his starting point when he joins us; this
mantra has served our students well. We wish all our students well as they strive forward in this ever-changing world and ask them to stay in touch to help those who follow them in the coming years.
We are pleased that our students have gained places at top universities and on higher apprenticeship schemes. All students have the option to enter their preferred route of career or
further study. This ranges from University, to Apprenticeships, to scholarships and the ‘World of work’.
Mr Lamb, Headteacher Enfield Grammar School commented:
“I have enjoyed working with our Year 13 students and seeing so many of them excel during their time at Enfield Grammar School; we have had the pleasure of seeing them develop from Boys to Men.
I would like to thank all the staff for their commitment in supporting students and their families. It is great to see so many of our young men securing fantastic opportunities next year, not
just at universities, but also with employers to follow degree apprenticeship programmes.
We congratulate them and wish them every success as they move on.
I look forward to seeing many of the class of 2023 at Old Boys’ events in the future”
A-level results day tomorrow!
School will be open from 8.30am.
Good luck to all those receiving their results
There were so many activities going on during the run up to the end of term; department trips, tours, concerts and activity days, finishing with our annual staff BBQ, where staff get the chance to relax and socialise, are thanked for their hard work and dedication throughout the year and, also to say goodbye to colleagues who are moving on.
We would like to wish all our students (including our prospective ones!), their families, our staff, LYDS Community Patrol, supporters and local community, a happy and healthy summer break.
So, until the results days in August.... 'goodbye and stay safe'.
