Slough and Eton is an 11-19 co-educational school that has grown in size and popularity over the last few years, a reflection of its high standing in the community. Currently we have over one thousand pupils and 6th Form students and over one hundred teaching and ancillary staff. This means that, whilst we are small enough to retain a friendly atmosphere and know everyone’s face, the school is large enough to enable a full range of GCSE and Advanced level courses to be taught by specialist teachers. The school also runs a range of Level 2 & 3 courses in our successful and quickly expanding 6th Form, now with over two hundred students.
We are a highly successful school with a Business and Enterprise Specialism. In 2008 we had a £10+ million major build. This has been supplemented by a new 6th Form block in 2013. These developments have helped to make us a flagship school for the 21st century.
Slough and Eton builds on the tradition of our foundation as a Church of England School which welcomes all faiths and cultures. We have developed into a school that celebrates unity in diversity by educating a multi-faith community. Pupils from over seventy countries, nations, cultures and religions, work, play, learn and flourish together. In this way they develop respect and understanding for each other and are well prepared for life in the multi-cultural society in which they will live their adult lives. All visitors comment on the warmth of welcome they receive and the focused attitude of pupils.
Academically we aim to 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. We believe that co-education benefits all and, 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. To illustrate this, our NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) figure for the past two years has been between 0% and 1% which is way below the national average.
