We are incredibly proud to announce that Etone College is in the running for the Community School of the Year Award 2024 from the prestigious Education Business Awards.

Etone prides itself as a valued member of their community. Whilst they are a centre of education, they also understand the importance of active citizenship and providing positivity to the local area. Over the past few years just some of their community programs have involved:

  • Continuing their membership as Holocaust Ambassadors
  • Achieving the International Language School Award
  • Developing a careers program with community support on our Careers Day and Fair
  • Engaging with local sport clubs
  • Supporting local primary schools in the education of their pupils
  • Working with the Nuneaton Library to create links for pupils and their families
  • Their Cadets have represented Etone and Nuneaton at remembrance day events
  • Achieving a three year streak as league winners for the Etone Football Education Academy

Whilst these are just a few of the initiatives we are proud of all we do. However, perhaps their most impressive is the Community Champions that are at the forefront of how Etone College helps those around them. Since 2021 pupils have supported a number of events and programs, ensuring successful food and toy bank drives each year, promoting important causes and organisations within the area and helping to support charity events that are on track to raise £10,000 within 4 years.

Of course to be nominated makes us proud of all involved, and to be shortlisted by the awards organisers is something that makes the experience truly special. Wish them luck as they attend the ceremony on June 12th at the Leonardo Royal London St. Pauls hotel London.
