Etone College (formerly Etone Community School and Technology College) is a secondary academy school in Nuneaton, Warwickshire, England. It is a mixed school of non-denominational religion.

History[edit]

The school was originally 'Nuneaton High School for Girls', the grammar school equivalent for girls passing the eleven plus exam. However, after the abolition of the tripartite system, the school became mixed sex and changed its name to 'Etone Community School'. In 2002, the school was granted Technology College status under the specialist schools programme. In 2006, the school established a loose federation with another local school, Hartshill School to share resources and expertise. It also gained specialist language and vocational status in 2006 and 2007 respectively. On 1 January 2012 the school officially gained academy status

Radio 1[edit]

In early 2007, the school was paid a visit by Radio 1, as part of its Star Pupil feature. Presenter Edith Bowman broadcast live from the school and introduced pop singers Paolo Nutini and Jamelia performing live in the school's main hall.
