Wow, what a term! We have conquered remote learning, mass testing, home testing and settled back into face to face learning. It has been tough time for all but I am so proud of the response from our students, staff and families. Happy Easter to you all. #weareEDA #ProudtobeEDA
Thank you for working with our young scholars. They are very lucky to have people who care so much about their learning and development #weareEDA #proudtobeEDA
Great catch up @EDarwinAcademy today with the Motivations girls group who created this fantastic Community garden, which is in full bloom, can't wait to be back there after Easter exciting times. @LotteryJane @NurtureIdeas @staffscvys
What do you get when you apply the EDA values of courage, determination and genuine hard work?
Answer- you get opportunity. It's then down to you to take it.
Delighted to read this former EDA scholar did. Congratulations Tom on your debut #weareEDA #ProudtobeEDA

The first full week for all students signals the restart of our House Cup. Wimbledon House win the week and are in the lead for this years House Cup, looking to win a reward event in the summer term!
Our on-site testing programme has concluded today. Enormous thanks to our volunteers for their support, we could not have done it without them. Our students, yet again, have been fantastic. They approached this situation with the maturity it required #weareEDA #ProudtobeEDA
To all staff and scholars, it's been #EDAtastic to have you all back in the Academy. Our brilliant staff have worked so hard all week to establish high standards and our scholars have risen to the challenge in the only way they know how .... Just doing it. Great to be back #EDA
I often write home to students and praise them for 'just getting on with it'. Our testing programme has proved one thing.... all of our students are just getting on with it and this, in no other terms, is simply brilliant. EDA students, I commend and salute you all #weareEDA
Amazing to have all Year groups back in the Academy today. We begin the hard work to get all scholars where they need to be #weareEDA #proudtobeEDA

This week our Performing Arts students have taken part in workshops with Lottie Henshall of both Mamma Mia and Coronation Street fame and Kieran Brown who has worked with both Andrew Lloyd Webber and Alfie Boe. It’s been an inspiring week and we have some very fortunate scholars.
It was #EDAtastic to see Year 11 and 13 in school today for their first round of tests. They were in great spirits. Looking forward to seeing Years 12 and 10 tomorrow. Huge thanks to our army of volunteers today, they were #EDAmagic #weareEDA #proudtobeEDA
