Eggar’s is a thriving Academy, and is firmly established as one of the best state schools in Hampshire. Set in a magnificent 38 acre site, the school has an inspiring campus with superb facilities including a bespoke Refectory and a state-of-the-art Astroturf pitch. With a strong, supportive and established Leadership Team we firmly believe in the relentless pursuit of exceptional teaching and learning.
We focus on each and every student as an individual and we are really proud of the strong sense of community which enhances our students’ experience at the school.
The Eggar’s Experience is at the heart of our extensive extra-curricular opportunities with more than 50 after school clubs which develops students’ creativity, talents and passion for their lives beyond Eggar’s.
Come and see the school for yourself! We have several Open Events throughout the year: three in July (including one on a Saturday morning), three in September (including an evening event) and one in October.You can also book a personal tour to see both our students and staff in action.
The school has one of the oldest foundations in the county. Under a Trust Deed dated 21st March 1638, a local farmer named John Eggar realised his idea of providing a school to serve the needs of its community. The first Head Teacher was appointed in 1642 – the date that appears on the school badge and which is proudly displayed on the current Eggar’s school blazer.
In 1968 the school moved from the original site to the modern buildings and spacious grounds it now occupies at Holybourne. In 2012 the school decided to become an Academy as a means to secure existing standards and to further develop the school.
