Welcome to Eckington
Welcome to Eckington School, part of LEAP Multi Academy Trust.
As our sons and daughters move to secondary school, they face significant changes to their education and over the next seven years of their schooling, they will learn to mix with different students from other primary schools, form new friendships, grow in independence and to solve more complex problems as well as to think more creatively. These vital skills for their future will be strengthened if they are happy, settled, secure and working well with their teachers.
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. I want all of our students to leave Eckington School with a wide body of knowledge and skills, a strength of character, so they are best equipped for what comes next and can live an exceptional life.
There are many reasons why schools are regarded as successful, but one of the main elements is to have collaboration and strong relationships, and we want to work with students and parents to ensure all of our young people grow, thrive and cherish their secondary education. As a school community we promise to do everything possible to help your child make the most of their individual gifts and talents.
I hope that our website will give you a flavour of life at our school: the opportunities we offer and the successes our students enjoy. Above all, I hope it will give you a sense of the values that underpin all we do and of our ethos as an ambitious, caring and successful school.
May I finish by saying that the future for Eckington is an exciting one and how much I am looking forward to meeting you and your child and working together in the years ahead.
