It is a great honour to become the new Headteacher of King Ecgbert School. I have found that the school is a welcoming, purposeful and highly successful school and I am impressed with the way students are valued as individuals. I will ensure we continue to be passionately committed to their achievement, personal growth and excellence in everything we do. 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 is better than most outstanding schools nationally but the young people leave the school with so much more than great exam results.
Whilst delighted with our best ever examination results at KS4 and KS5, the school is nonetheless committed to a programme of ongoing school improvement and the next phase of the school's development aims to take it beyond the oustanding Ofsted judgement in 2013 as a system leading school at the heart of Mercia Learning Trust.
