Information about the school

This is your chance to be part of a brand-new school set to transform secondary education on the Isle of Sheppey and to be part of the story from the beginning.

We're ready to nurture every student's unique spark and provide them with a first-class education tailored to meet their needs, regardless of their starting points, backgrounds, abilities, or beliefs. EKC Sheppey Secondary (EKCSS) opens this September to students from Years 7-9, with Years 10 and 11 forming as our students move through to KS4.

Every aspect of EKCSS has been designed to blend the best from across sectors. So, whilst setting the highest standards for secondary education, we're rewriting the rules with a look, feel and approach that is deliberately different from a standard secondary school... we know this is exactly what Sheppey needs and will create a dynamic, engaging, exciting environment where students and staff thrive.

Our strong and supportive senior leadership team prioritises purpose over paperwork and value-adding activity over box-ticking, freeing you up to do what matters most: nurturing bright futures. At EKC Sheppey Secondary, the rewards far outweigh the challenges.

We are proud to be part of EKC Schools Trust, known for its innovation and empowering schools to meet the unique needs of their communities. As part of the wider EKC family, we, alongside our sister organisation, the East Kent Colleges Group, have a strong and successful relationship with young people and families on the Isle of Sheppey. The EKC Family is a unique and sector-leading partnership; together, we run the Island's only outstanding provisions – Queenborough Primary School and Nursery and EKC Sheppey College – and raising the aspiration of all within the communities we serve drives our work.

The approach and delivery model in our organisations have successfully addressed behaviour, created a culture of success, and are places where staff are extremely proud and happy to work. We will be bringing all this expertise, culture, ethos, and curriculum approaches to EKCSS.

There is never going to be a more exciting time to join our school community. We're not just opening a school but forging a learning community where students and staff thrive… where belonging meets brilliance!
