About King Ecgbert School
King Ecgbert School is seeking two permanent Pastoral Managers to oversee the work of our busy team of Year Managers .
The school is exceptionally strong - rated outstanding by Ofsted and has academic results that are consistently ‘well above average’. This is a truly comprehensive school with 20% of students disadvantaged, 30% EAL and 40% from BAME communities, but also serving a highly affluent suburb. The school leadership is motivated by social mobility, inclusiveness and a focus on vulnerable learners. The school is proud to offer one of Sheffield’s Integrated Resources for children on the ASC spectrum. The sixth form is highly regarded for its record, not just of helping students access top Russell Group and Oxbridge Universities but also enabling students to be the first in their families to access Higher Education.
The school is proud to be at the heart of the Mercia Learning Trust that started with King Ecgbert School and now comprises 6 schools both primary and secondary across the south west of Sheffield. The Trust is led by its CEO, Chris French and all the schools benefit from an expert central services team.
The school is principally as strong as it is because highly qualified teachers teach excellent lessons with high expectations of all students in terms of attendance, behaviour, attitude and character. The teaching team are backed up by an exceptional team of support staff who are experts in their field. When we make appointments we are looking to strengthen an outstanding team; working in such a high achieving school is demanding but the camaraderie of working together to achieve excellence makes it a very rewarding place to work. The school is committed to staff development and supporting the career progression of the ambitious and talented.
The school was awarded the World Class Schools Quality Mark in 2017 and reaccredited in 2020 – the first school in the region to be nominated for and successfully achieve this accolade. This award enables the school to access a peer group of elite schools nationally.
We look forward to receiving your application.
