King Ecgbert School

Mercia Learning Alliance was formed by the Ofsted Outstanding and World Class School King Ecgbert School in South West Sheffield at the border of the Peak District. We are an 11-18 fully comprehensive school and are very proud of our inclusive values, our socially and ethnically mixed intake and our drive to enable all young people to reach their full potential through excellent teaching, high aspiration and nurturing pastoral support. Our students make excellent progress, far beyond national averages, and this is due to the commitment and skill of our teaching and talented support staff along with a genuine desire from the student body to work hard and achieve. We have a nationally renowned Integrated Resource for students with autism spectrum disorder, adding an extra dimension to the experience we can offer to your training.

About our school experience


We offer 1 day of experience in your chosen subject. The programme includes some time getting to know the school; time in departments; observation of lessons within the department and some activities that might help prepare you for applying to an ITT course.

The programme is recommended to those who are considering teacher training with us or have already applied for our programme and want to gain some experience. You can visit our school website at and Teaching School website

Start and finish times
8.30am to 4.00pm - Flexible

If candidates need to start the school day later or finish earlier then we ask that enough prior warning is given so we can factor this into timetables and ensure departments are aware.
