EGA School

About EGA

EGA is a vibrant learning community of 900 girls aged 11- 16.  Our students come from a very wide circle of local primary schools as well as a wide range of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.  The atmosphere at EGA is friendly, welcoming and purposeful. We expect our students to engage fully with their learning and to take advantage of the wide range of enrichment activities offered.

EGA upholds the teaching and learning of traditional academic subjects and is extremely successful in this both in the local and national context. However, we also embrace new ideas and technologies in order to support our students as they take their place as adults in the modern world.  For example, students have learned to video conference and to make podcasts as well as trialling the use of electronic books in our library.

Whilst our focus is on the academic subjects that will help your daughter to gain a place at college, we also encourage wide participation in dance, drama, music, art,  media studies and other creative subjects which we hope will bring her pleasure for many years to come. Whilst some of our students will be working with mentors from University College London and The London School of Economics to ensure that they achieve their potential academically, we also offer one to one and small group support for students who may have difficulties in certain subjects, in order to ensure equal opportunity for all.

Our location, close to central London, is a valuable resource and our students take full advantage of its facilities.  Visits to museums, galleries, theatres and historic sites are embedded in our schemes of work. Students have been involved in curating art exhibitions, preparing exhibits in The Science Museum and have performed on stage at a host of prestigious locations including Sadlers Wells, The Almeida Theatre and The Barbican.

Many of our students go on to study at Russell Group universities and other higher education institutions and are working in law, medicine, the media and a whole host of different disciplines.  We are extremely proud of their achievements, and we intend to continue to educate and nurture our students so that they can be happy, healthy – and achieve to the very utmost of their potential.
