To be part of Fullhurst Community College is to transform lives. We are proud to serve a diverse community of 1380 students, aged 11-16 years, on our two sites in south west Leicester and are oversubscribed each year. As the first school in Leicester to be rebuilt under the ‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme, Fullhurst provides an exceptional environment in which to learn and work. Over the next year we will continue to expand from 1380 students to 1500 students. To facilitate this our new £15 million Fosse Campus opened to Year 7 students in August 2019 and will be a based to Year 7 and 8 students from August 2020, with our Imperial Campus being the base for students in Year 9, 10 and 11.
Students follow personalised pathways for learning which meet their individual needs. Our curriculum is broad and varied enabling each student to thrive. We also offer an extensive range of extra-curricular activities including sport, music, art and languages. We want our students to be excited by their learning in the classroom and beyond, committed to achieving their very best and confident about their futures.
As a college, we are very proud to have been the Department for Education Pupil Premium Secondary Regional Champion, Leicester Mercury School of the Year and finalists for the Pearson's 2018 National School of the year. Within our context the progress students make at Fullhurst is exceptional, something recognised in our most recent Ofsted inspection, in January 2018 stating; “Staff work hard to maintain the schools many strengths and improve the school further. There is a clear-sighted focus on improving GCSE outcomes, combined with a deep-seated moral commitment to serving the needs of the young people in the area, especially the most vulnerable.”
At Fullhurst Community College, we work in close partnership with local schools, sports and community organisations to ensure we provide the best learning opportunities for our students. The community is at the heart of what we do with our school allotment supporting the 200 local families accessing the food bank. We also run a community radio station called Fullpower.fm.
We have assembled an outstanding team of leaders, teachers and support staff at Fullhurst through partnerships such as Teach First and Future Leaders. This has enabled our students to access the highest quality teaching and as a member of two local teaching school alliances we continue to attract the best candidates for all positions.
The priority of the college is to provide the highest quality education for every student in a supportive and inspiring environment. It is our aim that students leave Fullhurst Community College as successful, confident and responsible young people equipped with academic qualifications as well as the personal and social skills to enable them to make a positive contribution to society.
