About Eagle House School

About Us

At Eagle House we aim to provide a safe and focused academic environment for students.  Our ‘Student Focused’ approach helps us to provide an excellent progression for each individual student within a broad mainstream curriculum. 

We aim to grow each student’s academic potential. We implement High Impact Teaching Strategies to identify and support individual needs and talents. Further supported by our small environment where each student feels safe, cared for and respected as a unique individual. 

It is our priority to enhance students’ social and emotional growth, to encourage their natural curiosity and enthusiasm towards learning, and to provide the environment.
