Hundreds more students consider school

Hundreds more students consider school

Posted: 20th October 2022

Hundreds more families are considering sending their children to a secondary school after it secured its best ever Ofsted grading.

Epping St John’s was classified as Good by inspectors when they visited in April.

It was the first time the school had received the grading under the new Ofsted framework, having previously been classified as Requires Improvement in 2015 prior to joining the BMAT family of schools.

As a result, almost 300 more prospective students walked through the doors of the school during its latest open evening than in previous years.

Visitors were able to take part in activities in all departments, including dissecting hearts in science, mono printing animals in art, set designing in drama and a football tournament.

Young people and their parents could also try a sample of the meals served in the school restaurant.

Speeches were given by headteacher Mike Yerosimou, Year 13 head girls Samaya and Tilly and Year 7 students Arthur and Jesica.

Assistant headteacher Serife Horner said: “The school opened its doors to almost 1,000 prospective parents/carers and students. It was a busy evening, with lots of buzz and positive feedback from visitors.

“It was a wonderful event in which our school and students were shown off to the community in the best of lights. Students from Year 7 to Year 13 were incredible ambassadors for the school, supporting in departments and taking groups of parents/carers and students on tours of the school.

“Following our recent Good Ofsted grading and our best ever exam results this summer, open evening underscored everything we have been so happy to share with everyone.”

The event was followed up by a series of open morning tours, giving prospective students an opportunity to see the school on a working day.

Mr Yerosimou said: “Open evening is always a proud moment in the school calendar for us. Not only do we get to show off our school to prospective parents/carers and students, but also to watch our current students become superb ambassadors for their school. It was an evening of positive energy and we received lots of great feedback from visitors.”
