Eckington School Post-16 Centre
The Leader of Student Development for the Sixth Form is Mr C Wright. He is supported by Mrs M Fenn, the Pastoral Support Assistant for the Sixth Form and Mr C Horsfield, Assistant Headteacher.
The Eckington School Post-16 Centre provides care and attention and we are confident of the high quality education we offer. We value all our students and through the tutorial system, pre-sixth form interviews, target-setting and monitoring we offer the best kind of guidance and support through years 12 and 13. We are particularly proud of the fact that students who join us from other schools settle in quickly and go on to have a successful and fulfilling experience.
Subjects are delivered by specialist teachers in rooms equipped with interactive whiteboards and a wireless network that provides broadband internet access.
Investment in Post-16 has seen the expansion of the Post-16 Centre and the creation of a fully - equipped ICT suite, new teaching rooms and extensive working and social areas.
We pride ourselves on the spirit and sense of community within the sixth form. We respect our students and want them to succeed. To this end we ensure that students have the opportunity to broaden their experiences and to develop skills which will enable them to contribute to our community and to move forward on to the next stage of their lives.
Our aim is to provide our students with the best opportunities to progress into further/ higher education or into the world of work, equipped to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
