Eggar's School

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eggar's School is a co-educational secondary school with academy status, located in the town of Alton, Hampshire, England.[1]

Founding and history

In 1640 John Eggar of Moungomeries founded the Free Grammar School, Alton which subsequently became known as Eggars Grammar School. The School Badge displays the date 1642.

The Eggar family have been associated with the area for many centuries. They were great hop growers and Richard Eggar was credited, in 1890, with the invention of the "rolling floor" to ease the drying process in the kilns.

Grammar school

Between 1640 - 1975 entrance to the Grammar School was largely based on the results of the eleven-plus examination. Pupils from other schools were able to transfer to the Sixth Form at the Grammar School after their O-levels (GCSE) though many chose to go to the Technical Colleges in Petersfield, Winchester, Farnborough and Guildford. This school occupied a site at Anstey Road, Alton until 1969, when it moved to a new site on London Road, Holybourne, Alton

Comprehensive school

In 1975 the school became a comprehensive school, accessible to all children from the area.


The school converted to academy status on 1 September 2012.

Current site

The current site for Eggar's School has been used since 1969. The earlier, partly 18th century, building is still standing and was retained for use by Eggars in the 1970s and then Amery Hill in the 1980s and has now been converted into flats. There are approximately 800 students currently on roll.

Academic performance

In 2010, the cohort achieved a 93% 5 A*-C pass rate in GCSEs, with 73% gaining 5 A*-C including English and Mathematics. These results are up 9% and 15% from 2009 respectively. The performance rate remains close to this figure year on year.
