School tours for those who haven’t visited the school before ahead of the deadline to accept offers. Please book a place in advance and arrive at 9am. Boys must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Week commencing 10th June – ‘Interviews’
Each boy who has accepted a place at EBC is invited to come into the college with their parents or guardians to meet a member of staff. The meeting is a chance to fill in the necessary paperwork, order school uniform and ask any questions you may have – it is not an ‘academic’ or selective interview.
SUMMER OPEN MORNINGS – Tuesday 18th & Thursday 20th June 9-10.45am
Although these Open Mornings are primarily aimed at pupils looking to make the transition next year, you are very welcome to come and see the college on a normal working day. There will be a chance to tour the college, see lessons taking place and the facilities. There will also be the chance to ask questions to the Principal and members of the Senior Leadership team who will be based in the library.

FIRST DAY OF AUTUMN TERM – Tuesday 3rd September 2019
Only Year 7 students come into college on this first day of term. The Year 7 team will run an induction programme to help the boys get to know other members of their tutor group and to find their way around school.
We also run Year 7 & 8 buddy afternoons during the first half term to help new students get to know boys in other tutor groups and those in the year above them.
