What the school says...

The Beauchamp College is a large, successful comprehensive which offers a very wide range of subjects. In the words of the most recent Ofsted inspection (November 2003), "There is a terrific ethos in the college. Students have very good attitudes, a real passion for learning and a will to succeed. This is a college where it is 'cool to learn'." The college consistently does extremely well in local and national league tables, has a high reputation in educational circles and has been awarded various educational accolades such a being designated a Technology College, a Leading Edge College, a Training College, The British Council International School Award and the Sport England Sportsmark.

The college is set in spacious grounds on the southern edge of Leicester.

Special Education Needs

The Beauchamp College prides itself on its inclusive nature. All students, regardless of their SEN, are fully integrated into all aspects of College. The support provided is sensitive to the age and ability of the student and allows full access to the curriculum and extra-curricular activities. Through this support we encourage the students to take more responsibility for their learning and to develop into young adults who are ready for the world of work or further education. All students are given literacy tests on entering the College and those requiring extra support are identified and monitored closely. Parents are encouraged to take an active role in support of their child through regular communication with the College
