About King Ethelbert School

King Ethelbert School is an 11 - 18 mixed secondary school in East Kent with approx. 870 students. It has an inspiring ethos and a thoroughly motivated staff team. In January 2009 we formed a hard federation with Dane Court Grammar School, a large selective school five miles away in Broadstairs and in 2011 we became an academy. In 2013 we became part of a local academy trust called the Coastal Academies Trust which is made up of four Thanet high schools and one Primary school. All of these schools operate independently and have unique characteristics but good practice is shared helping to drive forward standards at every level: our mission is to make Thanet the centre for excellent education. We have had a £20 million rebuild through BSF providing the school with excellent facilities throughout. Although we are officially an 11 – 16 school our federation with Dane Court has meant that we were able to start a Sixth Form in September 2011. We are offering the International Baccalaureate Career-related Programme (CP) which offers a unique balance between practical / vocational study, academic rigour and global and cultural diversity. The school is part of a special pilot to introduce this qualification worldwide and Thanet has become an authorised IB World School and a world focus for the IB organisation. We are proud to be a model school for Kent, collaborating and developing the most effective techniques to improve student progress. King Ethelbert is located in the picturesque seaside town of Birchington-on-sea which has some of the most stunning coastal views in the country. Housing is affordable and the area benefits from a warm and sunny climate.
