Welcome from the Headteacher

King Ecgbert School has a long held reputation for excellence in Sheffield, and as headteacher my role is to be the custodian who protects what has long been a wonderful place to be educated.

Our 'ERA' values of academic excellence, showing respect and having high aspirations shape all that we do.

We see our purpose being far more than giving students knowledge, understanding and qualifications; but to help them develop into fine young adults who are happy, confident and able to make a positive difference to world around them when they leave.

Paul Haigh, Headteacher


We are an Anti-Racist Bronze Award school


At King Ecgbert School we celebrate the diversity in our school community. We are officially an Anti-Racist Bronze Award School, accredited by Leeds Beckett University Centre for Race, Education and Decoloniality and were the first school in the country to be accredited as such.

To prepare our students to enter the world as effective global citizens, we work hard to enhance the educational experience of all students by affirming their racial and ethnic identities and engender a sense of belonging and value in school. This is achieved through the delivery of a diverse and representative curriculum, hidden curriculum, enrichment opportunities and staff recruitment. Student groups and student leaders work with staff to recognise and celebrate the diversity of identity in our student and staff body and staff training supports all that we do.

King Ecgbert School Dignity and Respect Policy underpins and supports the delivery of this ethos for all staff, students, families, and visitors who come to King Ecgbert School.
