About The Ecclesbourne School

The Ecclesbourne School in Duffield, Derbyshire is exceptional.  Rated outstanding in four successive Ofsted reports we provide an excellent education within a happy, purposeful atmosphere.  We are a non-selective school and committed to maintaining an all-inclusive community for all our students. 

Since opening more than fifty years ago as a small county grammar school in the grounds of Duffield Hall, The Ecclesbourne School has been through many changes but, whatever our particular title or status, the school’s great strength has always been our continued commitment to providing a first class education for the children and young adults we serve. Each year we aim to build on the high standards and reputation achieved over many years, whilst looking to prepare the young people in our care for the challenges of the future.

We believe that our students are all equally important. We encourage them to welcome and celebrate their inherent differences and we operate a fully inclusive system designed to ensure all our students achieve their full potential. We encourage students to value each other and the relationships they make. We have very high expectations and we challenge every member of our school community to raise their aspirations and develop the confidence to reach for the stars.

We have a close relationship with all our primary school partners and we build on the excellent educational experiences that our students bring with them to the School by providing a wide range of exciting learning opportunities through our broad and balanced curriculum. We encourage students and staff alike to be lifelong learners as we help them to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to leave our secure school environment to further their education or to enter the world of work.

We are dedicated to improve continually the quality of education we provide. If you join us we expect you to take a full part in the life and work of the school, to meet the challenges that we offer and to endeavor to become an active member of our school community. The School’s motto, “Integrity, Tenacity, Service”, is as significant now as it was when the School opened its doors in 1957.

If you want an inspirational experience then Ecclesbourne is the School for you.
