Mercia Learning Alliance was formed by King Ecgbert 11-18 School, an outstanding school located in South West Sheffield and close to the Peak District. The school is high performing, fully comprehensive and ethnically diverse.  On site we also manage a nationally renowned integrated autism resource centre for students.

Our students make excellent progress, far beyond national averages. This is due to the commitment and skill of our teaching and support staff; and the desire and ambition of students who work hard to achieve. The school is the only one in the region to have been awarded the 'World Class School Mark'.

King Ecgbert is part of the Mercia Learning Trust which leads a number of exceptional schools. By training with the Mercia Learning Alliance, this provides an exceptional opportunity to learn in schools with great practice, and who are genuinely committed to developing and nurturing new entrants into the teaching profession...

We hope that you will choose to start your journey with Mercia Learning Alliance and help deliver outstanding education for Sheffield’s future.
