For the first time since 2019, our Year 11 and Year 13 students are preparing for a full series of summer examinations. We will continue to support students in school by providing high quality teaching and support in Period 6 and further additional revision sessions.
Furthermore, Ofqual and the Department for Education also recognise the difficulties students may have faced during the pandemic, and changes have been made to this year’s arrangements to help students. An unprecedented package of support has been put in place for students.
If you missed our Sixth Form Open Evening – please don’t worry!
You can find lots of information on our web pages, or get in touch to arrange an in person tour and chat!
We are still accepting applications.

At Eckington School, we have high expectations for our students: we aspire to “Achieving Excellence” 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.
Our Remote Learning Hub provides a effective and safe learning environment for staff and pupils alike.
Students can use their school email address and password to access the hub here.
Parents/Carers can visit our Useful Links page to access the vital information they require (such as SIMS Parent App, Parent Pay) to support their children when learning in school and at home.
Our Remote Education Provision document provides clear expectations and details of Eckington’s Remote Learning provision. Read the document to find how our learning is structured, how to access online resources and how to support your child with remote education.
The document also provides clarity and transparency to students and parents or carers about what to expect from remote education if local restrictions require entire year groups (or bubbles) to remain at home.
This year, all of our Parents’ Consultation Evenings will run through the website SchoolCloud. This is an online appointment booking system that allows parents to choose their own appointment times with teachers. The website can be accessed from any device.
Our SIMS Parent app allows us to provide information to parents in real-time. Whether it’s sharing information on homework, timetables, school reports or conduct, parents can stay on top of their child’s progress throughout their education.
We send automated alerts and notifications directly to parents’ phones, and the SIMS Parent App dashboard gives a clear overview of their child’s school life.
For more information on registering for SIMS Parent App, please contact us.
Achieving Excellence is the overriding ambition of the LEAP Multi Academy Trust. We place students at the centre of everything we do, creating a culture of success and a love of learning which enhances students’ achievement and their personal, social and emotional development.Trust Website
