Our Year 2017/18
Here is what has been happening in and out of school recently.
Our Senior Prom was a huge success. The theme was spies and there were lots of awards presented. Everyone dressed in their finest and danced the night away. Have a look on our Galleries page to see all the photos.
We received scooters donated by Micro Scooters UK in order for our pupils to develop their co-ordination skills and balance.
Congratulations to Rollason and Whitbread houses who were joint champions of this year's sports day. The sun was relentless and the pupils all took part with good spirits. Anchorage were on hand selling ice creams and cream teas. A really enjoyable afternoon.
Therapy Dog Visit
Primary classes have been lucky enough to spend time with Honey, a Therapy Dog, this term. Honey loves to be stroked, cuddled and read to and she is a very calming influence on the children when they spend time with her and she is a very welcome addition to the school.
Image Theatre Group
We had a visit from the Image Theatre Group who entertained the whole school with their version of Robin Hood. The pupils were encouraged to dress up and join in the performance which in some cases was entered into with much enthusiasm. A very enjoyable morning for everyone.
This event was held at Chelmer Park. Four teams took part in an exciting competition. In the final deciding game the Endeavour team managed 11 rounders to become 2018 champions.
The primary phase have new bicycles which were voted for and purchased via the Primary School Council. There will now be a new lunchtime Bicyle Club starting on Friday 11 May.
Danbury Residential Trip
The KS3 residential visit to Danbury Outdoors was a huge success. Pupils took part in a variety of activities and stayed two nights away from home which for most was a first. Why not look on our Galleries page to see more photos.
This year's MESSA Cricket competition was held at Chelmer Park. Six teams took part. The Endeavour senior team won all their matches to become MESSA cricket champions 2018. The junior team won 2 matches and lost 1 to tie for first place with Thriftwood B team. Well done to all the players for showing great sporting attitudes.

Parents/Carers Coffee/Cake Morning
We had a Coffee and Cake Morning in school on Thursday 22 March for our parents/carers. Representatives from SNAP and Action for Children came along with information on their organisations and ways in which they can support families.
The morning was positive and everyone who attended seemed to gain a lot from it. Thank you to everyone who came. More information on SNAP and Action for Children will be sent out soon via the Parent Hub app and via our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Crocus in Bloom
Snow? What Snow? It was lovely to see the crocus were still alive after the terrible weather we have had lately. Hopefully Spring is on it's way in time for the Spring Break.
Steam Train Walk
Armstrong Class walked to the railway bridge on Ingrave Road to watch the last journey of the Oliver Cromwell steam train.
The pupils were excited to watch the steam rising out of the train full of passengers. There was a lot of noise as the steam rushed out of the train. It's career began 67 years ago hauling a special train from London to Norwich along the Great Eastern Main Line. The cost to ride on this particular train journey was £269.00.
MESSA Basketball competition took place at Columbus College Sports Hall in Chelmsford. Endeavour School Key Stage 4 Team won their section and Endeavour School Key Stage 3 Team came second.
The MESSA Swimming Gala event took place at Leisure World in Colchester. It was an enjoyable and exciting gala. Overall the Endeavour team achieved third position with some good individual performances. Well done to all who took part.
Willow Dome Construction
Four students from Boyd class spend nearly two days building a living willow dome next to the outdoor classroom. The dome can seat a whole class for outdoor lessons. The willow sticks have started rooting already and will produce leaves in the summer to cover the whole dome. The cost was covered by the Rotary Club of Brentwood.
School Christmas Dinner
We had a whole school Christmas Dinner in the school hall. Magician Oliver Ward entertained us with his amazing skills.
Digital Candy Events provided a photo booth where we had photos taken with friends.
We also had the opportunity to dress up in our Christmas Jumpers.
Christmas Performances to Parents/Carers
KS1 and KS2 performed an amazing Nativity for their parents and carers.
KS3 and KS4 put on a spectacular Christmas Performance to their parents and carers.
Visit from Alex Burghart MP
It was a pleasure to have a visit from Alex Burghart MP. He joined pupils in classes and observed lessons. Mr Burghart expressed his support for the Endeavour School's application to convert to academy status and offered help in the process if necessary. He also showed approval of the possibility, in principle, for a future post-16 provision at the Endeavour School.
