Egerton is located in the centre of Knutsford. Our red uniform is well known and the profile of community involvement is very strong. We have extremely close links with Tatton Park. This was the home of the Egerton family who were the founders of our school in Knutsford and our twin, Egerton Primary School in Njoro, Kenya. The children are supported by the PTA to sponsor the rare breeds at Tatton Farm. We have regular visitors from Spring lambs to reindeer at Christmas time.
In excess of 90% of our pupils go on to secondary education at the nearby Knutsford Academy. Egerton is now a member of the The Learning Alliance Multi-Academy Trust. Senior Leaders and Governors now are fully invested in supporting Egerton pupils throughout their journey at Knutsford Academy.
Knutsford Library is frequently visited by the children both in school time with their teachers and in their free time too. The children take part in the Summer Reading Challenge each year and are involved in many other events arrnaged by the libarary.
Knutsford Heritage Centre has a very close relationship with our school as the oldest school in the town, founded by Lord Egerton of Tatton Park in 1893. Children from the school take part in their heritage walks around the town as part of their local history studies.
Our school choir is known in the town for their excellent performances at the switch on of the Christmas lights, community events and at local care homes for the elderly.
Staff and pupils from our school participate in the local Rotary Club sponsored jog each year on the town Moor.
Knutsford Lions run a Poetry competition every year. Our pupils always take part and have been very succesful over the years.
We have an intimate link with the excellent associated, but independently financed and run, pre-school group which is on the same site as our school.
Booths, the local supermarket, has been an excellent neighbour and sponsor over a long period of time. We have visited the store and the 'back-office,' displayed work, sung carols at Christmas and enjoy an excellent ongoing relationship.
We have close links with many local churches in our town. We visit, explore and hold services such as Harvest and Easter at different churches. Open the Book, an ecumenical group, come into school to deliver a the national programme.
Children swim at the local Leisure Centre on a weekly basis. Every year a large number of our pupils take part in the historic Royal May Day proceedings. It is a time of great excitement in the town and among our young people. These are just a few of the many close links we have with our local community.
