King Ecgbert School
Excellence, Respect & Aspirations
King Ecgbert is an outstanding 11-18+ secondary school located on the fringe of Sheffield with approximately 1400 students. It was the original founding academy in 2013, is responsible for the Mercia Learning Alliance (Teaching School), was the first school in the region to be awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark and is a Sport England TASS accredited school for elite athletes. Notable alumni include Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill and Joe Root. It has been high performing for several years so that GCSE outcomes are well above average, and Post 16 outcomes are in the top 5% of all providers nationally. It is heavily over-subscribed.
We are passionately committed to fostering and developing their academic excellence, high aspirations and respectful values. They are encouraged to thrive in all areas of learning in the classroom and beyond.
The school is recognised for its high attainment. Examination results are outstanding with the progress all children are making right across the curriculum being better than most outstanding schools nationally, but the young people leave the school with so much more than great exam results. Our motivation is to provide a curriculum that ensures the children we educate have real experiences and are instilled with good values. If King Ecgbert students leave school and grow into well-rounded young adults, who are in a position to do nothing less than contribute to making the world a better place, then we have done our job.
