Eckington School (LEAP MAT) are looking to recruit two further Ambassadors (voluntary positions) to their team.

Eckington School is a large comprehensive school in Eckington, Derbyshire. We have around 1250 students. Our aim is “Achieving Excellence” and this is the overriding ambition of our trust. We place students at the centre of everything we do, creating a culture of success and a love of learning which enhances student’s achievements and their personal, social and emotional wellbeing.

Our current Ambassadors have been involved with the school for a number of years, some being Governors before Eckington became an Academy in April 2018. They bring a wide range of skills and knowledge (academic and business) to the team.

We hope to add to our enthusiastic and caring group to enable us to continue to support our students, staff and parents.

If you are interested in joining us, please send in, either by post or by email an A4 page giving details about yourself, any experience of educational involvement in schools, and/or any connection you may already have with the school, together with reasons for wanting to become an Ambassador at Eckington School.

If there are any questions regarding the position of an Ambassador, please leave a message with the school on 01246 432849, giving your contact number and our Chair of Ambassadors – Mrs Jill Wormleighton will get back to you.

Written applications can be sent in to:
