This week at EPCHS is week 01

Wednesday 05 September 2012 - Friday 07 September 2011 [go to next week]

Monday and Tuesday are teacher training (INSET) days, so there are no lessons.
Pupils return to school on Wednesday.
It's a pretty safe bet that the first lesson most classes will have is about why we have classroom rules and agree what these should be. Parents and learners may be interested to visit our lesson on classroom rules.
