I am proud to introduce myself as Eaton Hall's Headteacher, having taken up the post in September 2014. However, I have previously worked at the school as a senior teacher from 2005-2012. During my time at the school, it has been a privilege to work with the boys and the staff that support them. We see so many of them make their first real success of education and we see them achieve in numerous ways. The opportunities the pupils receive are second to none including camps and trips, many of which you will see highlighted around the website. What is most important is to see the pupils take advantage of these opportunities.
As you can imagine without the staff team it would not be possible for the pupils at EHSA to have these opportunities. We have a highly skilled and committed staff made up of teachers, teaching assistants and care staff. All are dedicated to the twin aims of the school. To reintegrate the pupils to both their homes and to mainstream education. It is our high levels of success in these aims that have led us to receive 'Outstanding' Ofsted grades in education, for the last ten years.
This would not have been possible without the partnership with our parents. It is this partnership between home, school and pupils that is at the heart of the pupils' and schools' success.
Thank you for spending the time looking at our school. Please feel free to contact us if you wish to find out more.

"Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn" - Benjamin Franklin.
Eaton Hall is a unique and happy school where our primary aim is to engage pupils in learning through outstanding teaching.
"The vast majority of pupils are confident and articulate. Their positive views of the school are reflected in their responses to inspectors, with one pupil stating, 'I now enjoy coming to school and learning because I have teachers that understand me.' " Ofsted March 2018.
We aim to prepare children for their future by achieving both academic success and developing a core belief that they are a valued member of the community who can achieve anything they desire.
We hope your child will be happy at our academy, and that you as parents and carers will become fully involved in your child's education and the life of the academy generally. The partnership between home and academy is a vital one, and mutual support is imperative. At Eaton Hall Specialist Academy we value and encourage your participation and support.
I hope you will find this website useful in giving you an overview of Eaton Hall, as well as providing you with practical information. Please do not hesitate to contact the academy should you require any further information and we would be happy to give you the opportunity to visit us and see for yourself our thriving academy community.
