Slough and Eton were delighted to host the Great Education Debate on Monday 25th November. This was the second in a series of debates that will take place around the country to identify what education is for and how we can improve it in the future. The event was organised by the National Trust and the Association of School and College Leaders and our pupils, along with pupils from The Langely Academy and Beechwood, were able to put their views and let everyone know what they want from education in the future. Leaders in education offered their views about how to improve what we do and how to make use of new technologies. All of the pupils received some very positive comments from the 90+ delegates.
Thank you to all the parents that responded to the Ofsted questionnaire. As you will be aware, we have had four inspectors in on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd of November. We have received some very positive comments from them and we will let you know the outcome as soon as we can.
SASH Free School
The open evening for the new secondary school being opened by the Slough Association of Secondary Heads (SASH) took place at Slough and Eton on Thursday 17th October. Over two hundred people listened to talks from five secondary Heads about the philosophy of the school, the curriculum and potential site in the Upton Court area of Slough. The school will open in September 2014 and further information can be found at www.slough.gov.ukjschools-and-learning/school-admissions.aspx
ANOTHER YEAR OF SUCCESS AT SLOUGH AND ETON!
98% OF PUPILS ATTAINED 5+ A*- C OUR BEST EVER 5A*-C RESULT!
55% OF PUPILS ATTAINED 5+ A*-C including English and Mathematics
100% OF PUPILS ATTAINED 5+ A* - G
These results represent enormous success for the pupils. The pupils and staff have worked so hard for this success and the parents have been very supportive of everything that the school has offered. We are really proud of the fact that 98% of our pupils obtained at least 5 A*-C qualifications and 100% have achieved 5 qualifications. Against a background of what looks like needing more marks to achieve the same grades these results are fantastic and give these young people the passport to the next part of their lives.

Slough and Eton A Level Results 2013
Another year of improvement!
Overall A*- E Pass Rate = 98.4 %
Overall A*- C Pass Rate = 78.2%
‘‘We are very pleased with some of the outstanding individual results our students have achieved. Our A*- C Pass Rate is 78.2% which has improved by 12% since last year. We are particularly pleased with our Business, Drama, Finance and Social Sciences results.
Our 6th Form continues to grow and we have a wide range of A-levels and vocational qualifications giving our students maximum choice to suit their needs. We also have a brand new 6th Form block which will aid our students in their studies. There are some excellent individual performances, and I congratulate all of the students on their success and wish them the very best for the future. We expect many of our students to go on to university and we look forward to welcoming them back to speak to our pupils about their experiences. I would also like to thank staff and parents who have supported and guided the students through many months of hard work.”

Review of the Year
Slough and Eton has been a very hard working successful and enjoyable place to be this year. We have taken big steps forward to ensure that this is the school of choice in the community. The quality of learning has improved and the range of opportunities and facilities available to our young people has increased enormously. We look forward to celebrating our results in August, hopefully without too much political interference, and working in an even more successful school next year.
We are constantly striving to improve our standards and having 100% attendance is always our ultimate target for everyone. Parents are reminded that each time a pupil is absent from school, it has a negative impact on their learning. Different studies have proved that there is a strong correlation between high attendance and achievements of pupils. Where ever possible, any leave or appointments should only be booked during the non-school hours.
