Slough and Eton builds on the tradition of our foundation as a Church of England School which welcomes all faiths and cultures. The Christian ethos permeates across all our work and we celebrate unity in diversity. Our Christian values are based upon our belief encapsulated by St. Matthew 22: 37-39 “You shall love the Lord your God……. Love your neighbour as yourself.”
Our pupils are from a variety of religions, faiths and countries. They work, play and flourish together in our outstanding learning environment developing respect and understanding for each other so that they are well prepared for their adult lives. All visitors to the school comment on the warmth of welcome, harmonious atmosphere around the school and the focused attitude of pupils.
We are a highly successful, 11-19 co-educational school with a Business and Enterprise Specialism. We have grown in size and popularity over the years, a reflection of our high standing in the community and our outstanding achievements. Currently we have over 1100 pupils and nearly 200 teaching and ancillary staff. This means that whilst we are small enough to retain a friendly atmosphere and know our pupils well, the school is large enough to offer a full range of academic and vocational subjects taught by specialist teachers.
The school also has a very successful Sixth Form with nearly 250 students. We offer a wide range of AS, Advanced Levels and Vocational courses that prepare our students well for university or the world of work.
Academically, we establish good working habits in an environment that is wholly conducive to learning and study. Our results have been outstanding and our value added data has put our performance among the top schools in the country. This demonstrates that we are bringing about effective learning whilst maintaining concern for the individual. Although we take great pride in our high achievers, we are particularly proud that ALL of our students leave with sound qualifications on which to build their future. In addition, we aim to develop skills and qualities that prepare our students for life beyond school and to become leading members of the community and society. We call these “The Eight Characteristics of a Slough and Eton Learner”.
We believe that working collaboratively with other schools and organisations helps children to be more successful. We are a lead school in the Slough and East Berkshire Multi Academy Trust (SEBMAT) of which Colnbrook CofE Primary and Eton Porny CofE First School are members.
