The pattern of individual school terms and holidays for primary, middle and secondary schools
vary slightly from school to school, since
of the 195 days are used for staff development.
We advise you to check the
school's own website
or contact them direct for confirmation.

We had a moving Remembrance service in church on a brilliantly bright and sunny morning. The school was joined by the local community to remember. The children brought a poppy wreaths and bunches and some of the Eggardon children recited poems. All the children, including the Fledglings preschoolers, observed a 2 minute silence. They are amazing.We donated shoeboxes to HeartResponse charity, for children in Romania. We also raised funds for Children in Need; the children came dressed in yellow or something spotty. The Ethos Council performed ‘The Good Shepherd’ to demonstrate the value of joy.Sport: The whole school is enjoying 6 weeks of dance and cricket coaching. Our football team played the first round of Kenway Cup matches. We participated in the netball tournament and in the Quicksticks tournament, both at Colfox. Some of our Eggardon children took part in Young Dorset Sport Leaders Day at Redlands.
