About Eckington School
Eckington School is a vibrant and rapidly improving 11-18 secondary school with 1,240 students on roll. It is set in a wonderful 42-acre site of rolling North East Derbyshire countryside, situated close to the centre of Sheffield and the Peak District National Park.
At Eckington School, we have high ambitions in all that we do, so not only do we expect students to strive to excel in their academic studies, but also to develop resilience and character, through all of school life: including exposure to wide-ranging extra-curricular activities, school trips, their studies and through their social and friendship groups. We want all of our students to leave Eckington School with a wide body of knowledge and skills and a strength of character, so they are best equipped for what comes next, and can live an exceptional life.
As part of LEAP Multi Academy Trust, “Achieving Excellence” is our overriding priority. We place students at the centre of everything we do, creating a culture of success and a love of learning which enhances students’ achievements and their personal, social and emotional development. Our ambitious and emerging Multi Academy Trust currently comprises of three secondary academies serving nearly 4000 young people, with the other two sister academies situated in Rotherham. This is an exciting opportunity for ambitious colleagues to be part of this journey.
