Starting in September 2021, Lions are providing one strength and conditioning coach, once a week, at Edgeborough School
Having had sports scholars in the school but nothing in place to support their development, Lions now provide tailored athletic development sessions that help each scholar develop their strengths and improve their areas for development
💬 We have loved having Lions come in and work with our Yr 8 Sports Scholars - the sessions that they deliver are always pupil centred and challenging. The scholars have shown huge progress and we cannot wait to see athlete profiles at the end of the program and compare them to the tests they did right at the start 💬 (Director of Sport)

A huge Thank you to the children and staff at Edgeborough School for arranging this amazing collection of donations for Just4Kids Camberley which was dropped off the other day 🤩
The school wanted to give back due to support they received during the pandemic from our charity Chloe's and Sophie's Special Ears Fund. The charity funded clear panel face masks to help support a deaf child at the school.
❤ Just4Kids is open Monday to Saturday, 10am-2pm...come and support us by shopping with us so we can raise money to enable us to help more deaf children ❤

Happy World Smile Day to our Edgeborough Community and Happy Friday!
Year 3 had a cracking time yesterday as the results of their EGGsperiment were revealed!
Focusing on teeth and digestion as a topic, the EGGsperiment is a brilliant, practical way to show how our teeth (egg shell) can change with different liquids (water, milk, cola and orange juice) and which liquids are better for our teeth, along with other prevention care such as visiting the dentist etc.
Every pupil filled out a sheet to predict what they thought would happen. Results showed that water and milk made little to no change as they don't contain harmful ingredients, but cola stained the egg and orange juice made the eggshell softer (and very smelly!).
The children said that these may have been due to the sugars and acids in the cola and orange juice.
It's no yolk! (Thank you Mr Smith). Egg jokes welcome in the comments section!
Maths for Y4 pupils last week saw them working on place value; they had to ask each other questions on their challenge cards, working together to find the answers before swapping with someone else in the class.
Working in pairs fosters pupils' independence in their study and learning skills while also supporting their collaboration and communication skills - two of our PSB assessment framework pillars.
In Latin last week, Y6 pupils were asked to write 'letters from a Roman Insula.' We've attached some of the best examples where pupils have shown real imagination in their writing and growing understanding of the topic.
Latin lessons are an excellent opportunity to develop pupils' historical imagination. Across Years 6-8, we use the Suburani curriculum to explore Ancient Rome through the eyes of a young girl called Sabina, who lived in Rome under the reign of the emperor Nero. Reading the stories about Sabina's family life gives pupils a chance to learn about Latin grammar and vocabulary and to appreciate the classical values and ways of thinking that have so profoundly impacted our culture today.
We love these self-portraits from our Pre-Schoolers! We hope they make you smile as much as us. Friday joy right here!
As pupils move into Y3 from Pre-Prep and also welcome new pupils to their year group, we spend the first few weeks of the Autumn term supporting their friendship-building, teamwork and independence. Without bonds with one another and a strong sense of belonging, the transition to a new key stage could be daunting.
By affording pupils this development time, we see it paid back in the classroom, with children taking increasing ownership of their own learning journey, able to navigate their friendships with growing confidence and happy children enjoying every day at school!
Year 3 met their Pre-Prep learning buddies last week - to get to know them and share their favourite book.
Prep school pupils are encouraged to take on responsibilities and impart their skills right from the beginning of Junior Prep. This impressive Year 3 cohort read to their new buddies with enthusiasm and excitement, which was thoroughly enjoyed by the Reception and Year 1 pupils. It is always great to discover a new book!
We're thrilled to share this picture sent to us from LIGHT FORCE International Ministries who have thanked our community for donating old uniforms consisting of complete cricket kits, PE kits and new polo shirts, which have been sent to a school in Uganda.
LightForce International is a British Registered Charity based in Milton Keynes. It is committed to taking good news to the poor and practical help to people in need.
LightForce International has worked in Lira, Northern Uganda, since January 2004 initially working in the displaced peoples camps at the height of the rebel insurgency which devastated people’s lives. After a holding peace was in place, those displaced moved back to their villages—rebuilding their homes and working their land. LightForce International supported the return process and worked with communities with special emphasis on the education and health sector. LightForce has enjoyed partnerships with World Food Programme, UNICEF and Memisa Belgium.
Our Friday assemblies are packed with celebration! We acknowledge our achievements from the week, we listen and learn from our speakers (this week, it was our boarders' turn), enjoy performances from other pupils and take a moment to reflect on everything our community is fortunate enough to enjoy.
A Friday assembly treat from Gideon, who joined us in September into Year 8.
An accomplished Harpist, who has been playing for 6 years and is currently at Grade 7. He joins our Music Scholar programme and we look forward to many more beautiful performances from him.
Year 2 is embarking on an exciting new scheme of work this year - the Younger Chef of the Year Award.
This award is specifically for Year 2 pupils and is written by teachers for teachers. It is mapped to the Key Stage 1 National Curriculum for ‘Cooking and Nutrition’, the new statutory Relationships education, relationships and s*x education (RSE) and health education Curriculum (2020). It also incorporates other curriculum areas such as English, Science, Maths and Geography. It links to Ofsted’s new Common Inspection Framework by ‘Creating a culture and ethos of healthy eating’ (2022) as it supports pupils to gain knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy and make informed decisions about healthy eating.
This week, pupils made hummus with vegetable sticks to acquire safe and effective cutting skills. We look forward to
Showcasing pupils' progress throughout the year, watching their confidence grow and their skills develop.
Year 8 visited the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, E London, to conduct fieldwork & independent investigations on sustainability & urban regeneration. Collecting primary data by visiting an area of regeneration & conducting surveys to get their project work started.
Life's a journey, and this Y4 trip to Hogsmoor Inclosure last week was unforgettable! ✨
Welcome to Edgeborough Together 👋 Dedicated to supporting the whole community and beyond.

Meet the Head
We have welcomed lots of new families to Edgeborough this September, so it feels right to throw back to our film of Mr Cox from when he was new to the Edgeborough community back in 2022.
❓❓❓❓Let us know below 👇🏾👇🏻👇👇🏿 a question you would like to ask Mr Cox now.
We had a new Ref on the field today!
It was great to see Mr. Cox in his sports kit, refereeing our U11 team against Aldro School. There was strong encouragement to both sides and some serious tactic talk at half-time!
We hope you enjoy a peek into the world of our Pre-School and Reception classrooms.
At Edgeborough our modern approach to education, empowers pupils to delve into their interests and explore the world around them. Edgeborough stands out as a distinct learning community, fostering a nurturing and inquisitive atmosphere. which, in turn, cultivates independence and self-expression in each and every child.
Welcome back to the Autumn term.
Since you've been gone, we've been busy! We look forward to seeing old faces and new for what is sure to be a fantastic new school year.
Today, we send lots of luck to this fantastic group of Edgeborough and ex-Edgeborough parents, the , who will bravely undertake the Hellespont and Dardanelles crossing from Europe to Asia in the world's oldest open water swim in support of 'Clarkie' - James Clarke; husband of Lottie; father of Martha, Ollie and Matilda. In late 2021, James was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease (MND), a severe life-shortening neurological disorder for which there is currently no cure.
Geri, Caroline, Rups, Zib, Tanya, Piers, Roxy, Jen, Lisa and Catrin have dedicated the last few months to training whenever possible, having additional swimming lessons to ensure they can successfully complete this notoriously difficult challenge to raise as much money as possible to support the fight against .
The primary target of funds raised from James’ charitable challenges will be the Doddie Weir charity - My Name'5 Doddie Foundation Doddie was one of rugby’s most recognisable personalities, earning 61 caps for Scotland and representing the British and Irish Lions. In June 2017, he revealed he was suffering from MND and, from the outset, was driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research this rare disease.
If you want to take the , total over £35k, head to our , where you can donate.
Our soon-to-be Year 3s took their Royal Academy of Dance Primary Ballet exams just before finishing for the holidays.
No mean feat when you consider how busy the final weeks of term are for pupils alongside preparing for this exam. We hope you have smashed your exams, girls! Be proud of your hard work, effort and determination.
A triumphant end to the school year. Speech Day 2023 embodied everything Edgeborough stands for.
We celebrated pupils' incredible success across all aspects of their school life, welcomed parents, grandparents and Old Edgeburians; we listened to a moving performance from the chamber choir and heartfelt speeches from our Y8 leavers. Our guest speaker, Sir Anthony Seldon, delivered a thought-provoking talk before pupils joyfully ran onto the Head's lawn for refreshments, reflection and a few tears as they waved goodbye to another brilliant year.
How brilliant was Arts Fest?
Another example is our wonderful community pulling out all the stops to showcase our pupils' talents, passions, creativity and hard work.
As we head into the final days of term, we are delighted to share our Y8 Pupils' scholarship success this year.

What a wonderful evening for our Year 8 leavers on Friday. Our catering team pulled out all the stops to create a memorable and special evening for pupils. Once formalities were over, pupils went to the 'EdgeboroughDiscoteque' to throw their best shapes and let off steam before their day at Thorpe Park on Saturday.

🎈🎈🎈🎈 Party On Hire
After a solid year of fundraising for the school's chosen charity, My Name'5 Doddie Foundation Year 8 is finishing its time at Edgeborough with a fundraising bang! On Tuesday, they raised over £900 holding their enterprise day, and today they embark on a 10-mile sponsored walk to raise as much money as possible for this vital charity.
We will update you with their progress throughout today via our stories section, and if you would like to throw some money in their buckets, you can do so via their JustGiving page https://bit.ly/46vr6FR
A fantastic PSPQ Celebration evening for our Year 8 pupils last night.
Pupils worked on their extended projects over several weeks, deciding what they would like to study in greater depth, researching, planning, completing their learning log and producing their final written piece. Pupils benefitted from having a mentor who they met weekly to discuss their project, seek guidance and support and continue refining their work. The final part of their project is to present their findings, with a small group asked to present at the celebration evening.
As a Pre-Senior Baccalaureate (PSB) school, our curriculum follows the PSB assessment framework. This assessment model has at its heart the development of the values, skills, attitudes and behaviours required for children to succeed and flourish in an ever-changing world. Children are encouraged, recognised and celebrated for their achievements and are directly prepared for the next step of their educational journey.
Our Years 1 and 2 Swimming Gala on Friday was a great success! All pupils showed effort and determination with their swimming, with full support from cheering parents.
As we come to the end of this academic year, a reminder from Mrs Cox, who runs the second-hand uniform shop, to donate any unwanted items.
With over 700 items sold this year, the stock is starting to run low, so if you have any good quality items, they are very welcome and can be left at any time in the yellow bins by the shop, the School Office and Pre-Prep. If you would like the items to be sold on your behalf, please leave a note with them. Otherwise, any funds raised will be put towards child-centred initiatives here at school.
The uniform shop will open each Friday morning during term time from 8.30 am to 11.30 am, except Friday 30th June, when the shop will be closing at 10 am. Please park in the main car park (by Nursery), and if you have any queries, please email [email protected]
The shop will also open on Sunday, 3rd September, between 10 am and 12 pm for any last-minute requirements.
Thank you to all those who have already donated uniform items or are planning to do so.
While the big kids are away, years 1 and 2 got to enjoy a water-fun day!
Slides, water fights, hot tubs and buckets of fun! 💦
Y5 have wasted no time on their arrival at the New Forest yesterday. Den building, Archery, fire lighting, marshmallow toasting, S'more eating, sunset games and lots of laughter!
Year 3 Grandparents' and Friends' afternoon on Tuesday was a resounding success!
Huge hugs and smiles on arrival, with pupils incredibly proud to take their guests on a comprehensive site tour to show off their classrooms and work and talk about everything from fixtures to drama to their favourite food. All finished with hosting an afternoon tea on the Head's terrace.

Another fantastic Frensham Fayre
Great to be part of the parade alongside other local schools and Frensham Girlguiding. Walking the short route to Frensham Common, waving and enjoying seeing many familiar Edgeborough faces. As for our free tombola - what's not to love? Everyone's a winner! Match tea biscuits, and the opportunity to win an Edgeborough Ted guaranteed happy faces. 😃
We look forward to doing it all again on Saturday at Farnham Carnival.
Year 4 had the most brilliant day at Marwell Wildlife on Friday!
Exploring, learning about the unique habitats of different animals and enjoying seeing so many animals up close.
Y8 have arrived safe, well and raring to go!
This week in ARK, our Y6 pupils explored who to speak to when worried about their own or others' health. They discussed different organisations that could support them and trusted adults who could offer support and comfort alongside those nearest and dearest to them.
Talking about sensitive issues in a relaxed, safe environment allows pupils to listen and engage at a pace to suit them and their feelings. They can learn from one another and feel confident they are building a personal toolkit to help them throughout their time at school and beyond.
