Welcome to Edmonton County School
ECS is an 4-18 mixed, community, comprehensive school serving the communities of Enfield and Edmonton.
We are a dual campus school and our school has a long history of providing a high quality education to the children in the Borough of Enfield. We have high -calibre staff working as teachers and the wider-workforce. We share an aim that Learning and Achievement are for everyone. We want to create success and for every member of the ECS community to enjoy the rewards. The primary phase of our school is located on the Bury Campus.
The governors, staff and myself share a passionate commitment to meeting the varied individual needs of all our students, in order to ensure they leave ECS with the best possible academic qualifications. We want them to enjoy every aspect of their learning and we want them to develop as individuals, so that they leave us as confident and socially responsible young people who are well equipped to contribute to society and enjoy success in whichever field they choose for themselves.
We are enjoying increasingly high standards of academic achievement. Our GCSE results put us in the top 10% of similar schools across the country. We are ambitious to do even better and we are continually looking for ways to raise the level of achievement of our students. We pride ourselves on being a learning community in which every one of us, pupils and staff, reflects continually on how well we perform and seek ways to do things better.
Our school is a calm orderly place. We expect high standards of behaviour and presentation. We expect students to arrive punctually for class, to go to their appointed seat, remove their coats (and gloves and scarves etc.) and get out their books and equipment ready for learning. At all times students should respect everyone’s right to learn and there must be no disruption to learning as the time we have is too precious.
I am sure that you will agree with me that your child’s education is the most important outcome of their time at school. There are three behaviours that are completely unacceptable: physical violence, verbal abuse and, anti-social behaviour in the school and in the community. This means that we expect students to behave well both in school and when travelling to and from school. When they wear the school uniform they represent ECS and so it should be done with pride and a sense of loyalty to the school.
Education is the means for us to change our lives for better. A good education gives us the chance to live longer, enjoy success, create life chances, provide for a family and much much more. I am confident every parent and carer wants these for their child.
The natural pathway for our students at the end of their GCSE courses is to the ECS Sixth Form. Our sixth form is led by a deputy head with specific responsibility for this important area of our provision.
In addition to the traditional AS and A2 courses we offer BTEC courses at all levels so that there is a pathway for every student to continue their education. Sixth formers enjoy their own Common Room and have privileged access to study facilities. Students have access to a wide range of advanced level subjects taught by committed teachers to ensure success and progression into higher education. Additional support to the academic programme is provided by a robust tutorial programme that is designed to ensure that all students are able to cope with the demands of the advanced level courses.
Achievement is constantly monitored by tutors in order that students continue to develop academically to the levels required for successful transition to university and other vocational opportunities. A spirit of community action is fostered through opportunities to work within the school, for example the Edmonton Student Union has a high profile in school life, including running the School Council.
