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. Though some buildings date to the 1960s, it has been consistently upgraded and modernised with work soon to be completed on a multi million pound gymnasium, a state of the art Design Centre and a major refurbishment of the Sixth Form Centre.

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

Interpreting catchment maps

The maps show in colour where the pupils at a school came from*. Red = most pupils to Blue = fewest.

Where the map is not coloured we have no record in the previous three years of any pupils being admitted from that location based on the options chosen.

For help and explanation of our catchment maps see: Catchment maps explained

Further reading

If there are more applicants to a school than it has places for, who gets in is determined by which applicants best fulfil the admissions criteria.

Admissions criteria are often complicated, and may change from year to year. The best source of information is usually the relevant local authority website, but once you have set your sights on a school it is a good idea to ask them how they see things panning out for the year that you are interested in.

Many schools admit children based on distance from the school or a fixed catchment area. For such schools, the cut-off distance will vary from year to year, especially if the school give priority to siblings, and the pattern will be of a central core with outliers (who will mostly be siblings). Schools that admit on the basis of academic or religious selection will have a much more scattered pattern.

*The coloured areas outlined in black are Census Output Areas. These are made up of a group of neighbouring postcodes, which accounts for their odd shapes. These provide an indication, but not a precise map, of the school’s catchment: always refer to local authority and school websites for precise information.

The 'hotter' the colour the more children have been admitted.
