Progression from Eckington School


At Eckington we provide education for our pupils from Nursery to the end of Year 5. Depending on where a child lives there are then two main progression routes from Eckington School. Both routes involve the children journeying through a chosen middle school and then onto a high school.

The majority of our pupils move on to Bredon Hill Academy in Ashton Under Hill for years 6, 7 and 8. From there, they move to Prince Henry's High School in Evesham for Year 9 onwards. This is the preferred route for our children in catchment. However, we also have children making the transition to St Barnabas Middle School in Drakes Broughton which takes children in Years 5, 6 and 7. These children would then usually move to Pershore High School in Year 8.  

Eckington is part of a cluster of first schools who feed into Bredon Hill Academy. Good links exist between the schools and during their time at Eckington children have the opportunity to participate in many cluster and transition events. Staff within the cluster also work closely together to ensure continuity in the children’s education from feeder schools to middle school.
