Welcome to Egglescliffe School


Egglescliffe is a very lively, high-achieving Sixth Form. It has been described in the Good Schools Guide as “effervescent” and “busy from dawn ‘til dusk”. More than half of our own Year 11 students choose to join the Sixth Form in addition to a number of students from 11-16 schools in the Stockton area. We offer a high-quality experience for everyone, and we place a high premium on our friendly, purposeful atmosphere.

In recent years, both Egglescliffe School and the Sixth Form have gone from strength to strength. Our last inspection report rated Egglescliffe Sixth Form as “outstanding” in all its dimensions. Students benefit from our first designation as a Specialist School for Performing Arts, which provides a wealth of opportunities for involvement in Music, Media, Drama and Dance. Our second specialism in Science reflects high standards and strong student demand for all three Science subjects and Mathematics. We are very proud of the fact that we can sustain two specialisms in different subject areas.

Sixth Form study within a school environment is a very popular and successful option for many students. We are proud of our examination results, which are consistently well above local and national averages. Smaller classes and individual guidance, combined with an enjoyable and challenging atmosphere, make for a winning formula.

You are very welcome to find out more by arranging a visit at any time. We look forward to seeing you.
