8+ Open Morning and Scholarship Event

Join Eaton House The Manor Prep for our 8+ Open Morning and Scholarship information event on Thursday 5 December for 2020 entry 

Eaton House Schools would like to invite parents to an Open Morning specifically devoted to 8+ entry on Thursday 5 December 2019, 9.00am to 10.30am. There will be an opportunity to discuss scholarships and forthcoming assessments and to discuss the options for your son with the staff. 

Visitors will be greeted by the Head of The Manor Prep, Mrs Sarah Segrave, and senior members of staff on arrival over refreshments. Mrs Segrave will then give an introductory talk about the school and 8+ entry and parents will be able to tour the school and chat to other key staff. 

Eaton House The Manor Prep is a traditional yet innovative academic school that regularly wins scholarships to top schools across the country, including a coveted St Paul’s John Colet Scholarship for academic excellence in 2018.

 

The school takes the view that every boy has talent and no boy passes unnoticed here. Children learn in a supportive, nurturing and happy environment where wellbeing is at the very core of everything that is done.

Over the last decade (2010-19), some 62 percent of Eaton House The Manor Prep pupils have won places at Eton, Radley College, Dulwich College Middle School, Charterhouse, Tonbridge School, Harrow School, Westminster School, St Paul’s School, King’s College Wimbledon and Winchester College and all of the pupils gained places at a range of very fine senior schools.

But the school offers so much more than academics, from co-curricular trips and exhibitions to over 30 weekly after school clubs and a vibrant artistic, musical and sporting life based on a strong House culture.

If you are interested in coming along, you may also like to save the date for 8+ assessment, held on Thursday 16 January 2020. Boys will participate in a variety of activities around the school, including Science, DT (Design and Technology), take part in a group interview, and sit exams in English, Maths and Verbal Reasoning. The session will last from 9.00am until 1.00pm and aims to be as relaxed and enjoyable as possible for the boys. 

If you would like to attend an 8+ Open Morning, please RSVP to Miss Sam Feilding, Head of Admissions on 0203 917 5050 or sfeilding@eatonhouseschools.com.  

 
EATON HOUSE BELGRAVIA WINS AWARD

Eaton House Belgravia has been selected in the Independent School of the Year awards as a Highly Commended School in the Independent Boys’ School of the Year category. It was a national competition and Eaton House Belgravia was the only London Prep School in this category. The winner was Bolton School Boys’ Division. The other Highly Commended schools were Dulwich College Senior School and Moulsford School.

The organisers commented:  “Having had over 200 applications for these awards, the school stood out as a key player in the industry due to the depth and breadth of its offering … our judges recognised Eaton House Belgravia as one of the stand out schools to enter the awards.” 

In 2018, Eaton House Belgravia Pre-Prep achieved some of the most outstanding 7+ and 8+ results in London, with 40% of students securing offers to Westminster and St Paul’s at 7+ and 8+, amongst many fine schools. This was from a non-selective entry, because Eaton House Schools firmly maintain that children blossom at different rates educationally. 

Huw May commented:  “This award is undoubtedly for all the people in the school who contribute to its unique spirit – from the front desk staff to the form teachers, House masters and mistresses, sports teachers and caterers, never forgetting that an army marches on its feet! Above all, it is for our amazing pupils and their dedicated and supportive parents. Working together as one team they all make this school a happy, magical and successful place to be.”

 

NEW HEADMASTER FOR EATON HOUSE THE MANOR PRE-PREP SCHOOL

Eaton House Schools is delighted to announce the appointment of Cambridge-educated Mr David Wingfield as the new Headmaster of Eaton House The Manor Pre-Prep School. He will bring an exceptional skill set to the role and is the perfect choice to take Eaton House The Manor Pre-Prep forward. The appointment marks a new chapter in the history of the Pre-Prep and will be key to enhancing its academic prowess, as Mr Wingfield has a wealth of experience that will prove a tremendous asset to the school. The Tatler Schools’ Guide, 2020, described him as one of the ‘most motivated teachers they had ever met.’

David Wingfield came to Eaton House The Manor Pre-Prep from Bassett House School in North Kensington, where he was Deputy Head and Head of Mathematics. He has interests in Early Years education, inclusive classrooms, the maths mastery approach and in developing leadership for all. He is passionate believer in wellbeing as the foundation of academic achievement, and he has set to work empowering the staff and pupils to develop their leadership skills at every level of school life. He is ready to challenge accepted norms of teaching and learning, and plans to promote the boys’ independence, resilience and creativity in the context of high expectations for all. This, he believes, will serve as the best preparation for the next stage of their education.

David gained a BA (Hons) in Theology and Religious Studies and MA at Cambridge, and a Baccalaureate in Philosophy at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. He gained his PGCE in Secondary Religious Education at UCL Institute of Education, and is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA) and the Chartered College of Teaching (FCCT). He is also a governor at Highfield School, a primary academy in Bromley.

In his free time, David is a classically trained singer and was chorister for four years at the University of Cambridge. He is also an amateur drama enthusiast, enjoys singing and is a keen theatre goer. David enjoys gardening on his allotment, cooking, baking, swimming and walking for relaxation and exercise. 

David commented: “I am delighted to have been asked to take on the Headship of Eaton House The Manor Pre-Prep School, as it has a long heritage and a track record of academic and pastoral excellence. I am very much looking forward to working with the experienced teaching team at the Pre-Prep and with Mrs Sarah Segrave, Headmistress of the Prep School to ensure a seamless transition from Pre-Prep to Prep.”

 

Out of this World - New Science and DT Labs at Eaton House Belgravia School in Eaton Gate

This summer Eaton House Belgravia School underwent an extensive – and some might say space-age renovation with a futuristic theme designed to create an exciting, innovative and better learning experience for the children. Although the pictures here are purely representational and not to scale they give you a good idea of how big the change is. 

The old kitchen was moved closer to the dining hall, offering more space and an even wider range of freshly prepared meals to be produced onsite. A new state-of-the-art science lab replaced the old kitchen, with a superb new design and technology classroom taking the place of the old science lab. Finally, the pupil toilets on the top floor of No. 5 Eaton Gate were renovated. Parents will have a chance to see the changes for themselves in September, 2019.

PROJECT 1 - SCIENCE LAB

The science lab was moved into the place of the current kitchen and furbished to the highest standard, with new floors laid, dynamic communal working spaces built and reinforced fire doors installed, ensuring the utmost safety. The new science lab, fitted out by INNOVA Design, features imaginative ergonomic furniture, coupled with an exciting colour scheme to engage and inspire the pupils as they explore, discover and examine their way through the early years of their science education journey.

PROJECT 2 - DESIGN & TECHNOLOGY LAB

 

A new state-of-the-art design and technology classroom replaced the old science lab, which moved to the old kitchen. This impressive new space will be bright and airy, with a wonderful tunnel feature making for a fun, stimulating and characterful learning environment. All pupils should set their intergalactic course now!

Conquering the Three Peaks in 24 hours

From June 27th to June 28th of this year, 19 Eaton House The Manor Prep boys completed the incredible Three Peaks Challenge, which was to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – in 24 hours.

The boys arrived in Glasgow accompanied by a number of staff members and a trained expedition medic. They had been training hard for months and were properly prepared and ready to begin the ascent of Ben Nevis at 5pm. It was a challenging climb in sweltering heat as the base of Ben Nevis was 36 degrees! At 10pm they finished Ben Nevis and started the 6 hour drive to Scafell Pike, sleeping on the way. They started that climb at an eerie 4am, finishing just after dawn broke. They then headed to Snowdon, where they started climbing at 1pm and reached the summit at 5pm. ‘The best moment was when our group reached the top of Snowdon,’ said  Edward, a Year 8 pupil. ‘Because there was a massive sense of achievement in thinking that we had completed it in 24 hours. The scariest moment was  when we decided not to take the path down Ben Nevis but to scramble our way straight down the mountain!”’

 

‘They did it in style,’ said the Headmistress of Eaton House The Manor Prep, Mrs Sarah Segrave. ‘And they did it in 24 hours, with every boy making it up every peak, showing good humour and toughness along the way. Eaton House The Manor Prep boys don’t do anything by halves.”’ The whole  event was for charity and raised £11,243 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity.

We Love Mindfulness

Mindfulness matters at Eaton House Schools. Recently, the Eaton House The Manor Prep Year 8 boys went on a life-enhancing mindfulness course ending in a quiet meditation session on the classroom floor. They are shown here relaxing gently on the carpet as they learn the best techniques for focussing during the exercise!

Wearing ‘mellow yellow', the campaign colour representing enlightenment and happiness, the whole school also supported Mental Health Day on October 10 last year.

Manor boys and girls played their part by writing inspirational messages to support each other, create feelings of positivity and other ways to enhance or develop inner peace and calm in a busy day.

Supporting this important day is part of Eaton House Schools’ ongoing commitment to the wellbeing of pupils and their development as kind, mindful individuals who will always be self-aware concerning positive mental health.

World Mental Health Day is observed every year with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues and mobilizing efforts in support of better mental health, but our efforts carry on throughout the year in support of the campaign at #HelloYellow.

 

EATON HOUSE THE MANOR GIRLS SING AT THE O2!

On Tuesday 5th February, Eaton House The Manor Girls’ School Form 6 students joined in as part of the largest choir ever to sing at the O2, with over 8000 school children taking part.

“Singing with amazing professional singers was such an inspiration,” says Leah Hickie, Head of Music at EHTM Girls’ School.  “Tony Hadley, the lead singer of Spandau Ballet was amazing and we sung some of his songs such as ‘Gold’ and ‘True’ and the lead singer of Basement Jazz, Sharlene Hector, was also absolutely inspirational.” 

There was so much fun and enjoyment on the night and the girls were able to dance as well as sing as Urban Stride Dance Group featured in some of the songs and a ‘Moana Mashup’ involved movements created  to illustrate the songs, all performed in unison.

One of the girls reported: “I’ve had the best time. It made me so dizzy to see so many children singing together. It just made me so happy to be there! “

Out of this World - New Science and DT Labs at Eaton House Belgravia School in Eaton Gate

This summer Eaton House Belgravia School underwent an extensive – and some might say space-age renovation with a futuristic theme designed to create an exciting, innovative and better learning experience for the children. Although the pictures here are purely representational and not to scale they give you a good idea of how big the change is. 

The old kitchen was moved closer to the dining hall, offering more space and an even wider range of freshly prepared meals to be produced onsite. A new state-of-the-art science lab replaced the old kitchen, with a superb new design and technology classroom taking the place of the old science lab. Finally, the pupil toilets on the top floor of No. 5 Eaton Gate were renovated. Parents will have a chance to see the changes for themselves in September, 2019.

In 2018, Eaton House Belgravia Pre-Prep achieved some of the most outstanding 7+ and 8+ results in London, with 40% of students securing offers to Westminster and St Paul’s at 7+ and 8+, amongst many fine schools. This was from a non-selective entry, because Eaton House Schools firmly maintain that children blossom at different rates educationally. 

Huw May commented:  “This award is undoubtedly for all the people in the school who contribute to its unique spirit – from the front desk staff to the form teachers, House masters and mistresses, sports teachers and caterers, never forgetting that an army marches on its feet! Above all, it is for our amazing pupils and their dedicated and supportive parents. Working together as one team they all make this school a happy, magical and successful place to be.”

 

Conquering the Three Peaks in 24 hours

From June 27th to June 28th of this year, 19 Eaton House The Manor Prep boys completed the incredible Three Peaks Challenge, which was to climb the highest mountains in Scotland, England and Wales – Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon – in 24 hours.

The boys arrived in Glasgow accompanied by a number of staff members and a trained expedition medic. They had been training hard for months and were properly prepared and ready to begin the ascent of Ben Nevis at 5pm. It was a challenging climb in sweltering heat as the base of Ben Nevis was 36 degrees! At 10pm they finished Ben Nevis and started the 6 hour drive to Scafell Pike, sleeping on the way. They started that climb at an eerie 4am, finishing just after dawn broke. They then headed to Snowdon, where they started climbing at 1pm and reached the summit at 5pm. ‘The best moment was when our group reached the top of Snowdon,’ said  Edward, a Year 8 pupil. ‘Because there was a massive sense of achievement in thinking that we had completed it in 24 hours. The scariest moment was  when we decided not to take the path down Ben Nevis but to scramble our way straight down the mountain!”’

 

‘They did it in style,’ said the Headmistress of Eaton House The Manor Prep, Mrs Sarah Segrave. ‘And they did it in 24 hours, with every boy making it up every peak, showing good humour and toughness along the way. Eaton House The Manor Prep boys don’t do anything by halves.”’ The whole  event was for charity and raised £11,243 for Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity.
