School Description

The school is larger than most secondary schools. The majority of students are from White British backgrounds; Pakistani, Indian and African are the largest other minority ethnic groups. The proportion of students who speak English as an additional language is above average. The proportion of students eligible for the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for those pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals, children from service families and those children that are looked after, is below average. The proportion of disabled students and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is below average. The proportion of students supported at school action plus or with a statement of educational needs is above average. The school has specially resourced integrated provision for 34 students with autism spectrum disorders. The school has a technology specialism. The school works with Silverdale school and High Storrs school in the Sheffield West Learning Partnership to give students in the sixth form a wider choice of courses. The headteacher also undertakes the executive headteacher role at the school’s partner school, Newfield Secondary School. King Ecgbert School converted to become an academy in October 2012. When its predecessor school of the same name was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good overall. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for students’ attainment and progress. Seven Key Stage 4 students attend off-site alternative provision, which includes the Award Scheme Development and Accreditation Network (ASDAN) qualification, level 1 and BTEC level 2 courses, at Recycle Bikes, Whirlow Hall Farm, Dimensions, The Source and the Engineering Centre.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

King Ecgbert School Reviews

Average Rating:


“Sheffield Sixth Forms”
"> From our experience grade 8s and 9s from another school may not result in high A level grades here. Nor will working your socks off at this Sixth Form necessarily guarantee a place from that hard won Russell Group offer in our opinion. However, if your eyes are set on Oxbridge, Dentistry, Medicine or Veterinary Science or on becoming an elite athlete this may well suit you. There is a two-year dedicated programmes of support on offer.
