Ethos & Vision
We are an ambitious College determined to offer an outstanding education to our community. We are at a very exciting stage of our transformation and are confident that the changes made will have a significant impact on the achievements of our young people. We are confident that September 2020 ECCAT will see us at the top of the Progress scores for non-selective schools in the city. We are proud of the positive culture we are building, students’ value their education are aspirational in their future choices and committed to their studies.
Our curriculum offer is deliberately aligned to the vibrant national and international industries and employment opportunities offered in our Ocean City. We are delighted that 20% of our Year 11 cohort (2019) successfully gained their level 2 apprenticeships reflecting the impact of our careers advice, guidance and careers programmes. Post 16, we have high percentages gaining their university places, level 3 apprenticeships or jobs with training attached.
The high percentage of services families reinforces our commitment to British Values and this influences all we do. Our aim is to inspire our students to achieve their best and to develop into young people who have the resilience and confidence to face any challenge.
