About Us

It is a great honour to be the Headteacher of King Ecgbert School. The school is a welcoming, purposeful and highly successful place where students are valued individuals.

My role is to ensure we continue to be 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 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 examination results at KS4 and KS5 in 2019, 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.

This website is designed to give you all the information you may need, regardless of whether you are a current student, parent or member of staff or if you are a prospective parent, student or prospective member of our school staff. We are particularly proud of the care and guidance we provide for all of our students, including the most academically gifted who win places at Oxbridge and those who have significant additional needs.

Our expectations for every child and young person are high; excellence and enjoyment are at the heart of all we do. By choosing King Ecgbert School as a place of study for your child, for sixth form or for a place of work, you are committing yourself to our caring aspirational school.

If you have any suggestions or feedback regarding our website or indeed our school, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
