On Wednesday 11th September we threw open the doors to our new buildings on Eccleston Square.

From 8am families arrived and waited excitedly outside the three entrances to the new school buildings, the crowds grew until we were filling the whole pavement! Just before 8.30am the Chairman of Dukes Education, Aatif Hassan, along with the Principal of Eaton Square, Sebastian Hepher, formally announced the school open. Ribbons were cut by the Head boy and Head girl and the pupils all streamed into the building to explore and find their new classrooms. Once their children were settled, parents could chat over a coffee and a pastry and catch up with their friends who they hadn’t seen since July.

The whole morning was full of energy and excitement, a feeling that will not be leaving Eaton Square any time soon.
