The School
Edgbarrow School is a successful, mixed 11-18 comprehensive school with an established Sixth Form. We are a popular school with around 1100 pupils, being the first choice for the majority of families in Crowthorne and the surrounding areas. In September 2004 we achieved Specialist School Status and are now a “Business and Enterprise College”. (See section heading below for more details)

We have an on-going building and redecoration programme to ensure that classrooms and resources are appropriate and support good quality teaching and learning.

The School, the Family and the Community
Edgbarrow is a community within a community. We believe that in developing strong partnerships with parents, local businesses and members of the wider community our students will be helped to become good citizens.

The values of the school underpin our belief and desire that students develop both academically and socially during their time with us. It is our aim that students should come to understand that they should care for themselves and for others. This development of the whole person is the best achieved when home and school work together.
 We endeavour to secure a structured and orderly learning environment giving all pupils equal opportunity to grow in an atmosphere which values effort and achievement. Different styles of teaching and learning and good relationships make it a school where pupils wish to be.
The school newsletter appears six times a year and keeps you informed of school life, clubs, visits, competitions, sports results and the like. Parents/Carers and staff use the school planners for two-way communication and Parents/Carers are always welcome to visit the school

Edgbarrow Sports Centre

During the day the school is fortunate enough to have use of the extensive sports facilities at the Centre. At all other times it is used by the wider community.

The School Council is selected every year, and each Year group is represented by students elected by their peers. It is important that the School Council meet to discuss various matters relating to Edgbarrow School.

The meetings usually take place every 3 weeks. If there are any issues that you would like the School Council to discuss, then contact one of your Year Reps, who will bring it up at the next meeting.

The wearing of the correct uniform while travelling to and from school and during the school day is very important to us.  We feel that it offers equality for all students regardless of their financial background, it  sets a standard of high expectations, while it helps to promote a sense of pride in the school community. We rely very much on the co-operation of students and parents in helping us to set and maintain high standards of dress and appearance.


Parents should be aware that the Governors of the school are keen that the uniform should be adhered to closely, and that in the last resort children who are not in school uniform may be excluded from lesson until they are properly dressed.


To ensure consistency and clarity, parents will be offered two recognised suppliers for purchasing some items of uniform. 

-          Monica’s in the High Street will offer shirts for boys and revered blouses for girls, school ties, jumpers (optional), skirts (optional), two styles of trousers for girls and two styles of trousers for boys. 
  -        Trutex will provide the opportunity for parents to purchase items direct through their own brochure, although they do not sell any item of school uniform which has a logo.


The school blazer, with embroidered badge, is only available through the school.

Students should wear a plain coat or jacket without slogans, flags and large motifs.  Tracksuit tops, denim jackets and hoodies are not suitable and are not acceptable.



In general, jewellery is inappropriate at school and may not be worn.  Pierced ears may be protected by the wearing of a single stud in each ear.  No other earrings may be worn and no other body piercing e.g. nose studs etc. are allowed.  Studs should be gold or silver coloured.  For PE lessons, all studs should be removed for safety reasons.


We suggest that if anyone wishes to have a nose or any other stud piercing they should have it done at the beginning of the summer holidays.  This will allow time for healing and the studs can be removed before students return to school.





No make-up to be worn.
·  Denim or denim type e.g. cotton shirts or blouses.
·  Jeans, cords, leggings and bootleg trousers.
·  Trainers, sports shoes, sandals, slingbacks or Doc Martin type boots.  (Trainers should only be worn during sporting activities).
·  In general the school does not accept haircuts of extreme fashion e.g. no shaved heads less than a grade 3 or exaggerated stepped haircuts.



All pupils cycling to school need a permit from their Head of Year and must wear a cycle helmet.
