Together we learn, together we achieve, learning to succeed 

Ellesmere College is a good school that continues to improve 

  • Relationships between staff and pupils are extremely strong. As a result, pupils thrive.
  • Pupils demonstrate high levels of engagement and enjoyment. Staff create an infectious enthusiasm for learning.
  • Pupils' confidence during their time at the school increases because of the good teaching they receive and the range of learning they experience in the classroom and through extra-curricular activities. 
  • Pupils are very well prepared for a life after they leave school. Many are successfully trained to travel independently and this enables them to gain access to community activities and future colleges independently. All pupils go on to positive post-school destinations.
