Statement From The Principal

On behalf of The Lionheart Academies Trust and the Beauchamp City Sixth Form Governing Body, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Beauchamp City Sixth Form.

Our mission is to provide specialist academic teaching that ensures access to the most prestigious universities and higher level apprenticeships for any young person from any background.

Students in Leicester City and the surrounding area have a right of access to ‘Powerful Knowledge’. According to Professor Michael Young (UCL Institute of Education), this is

knowledge that is distinct from ‘common sense’, systematic and specialised. Powerful knowledge empowers students, in order to take them beyond their own experiences. Building on the strong A-Level expertise at Beauchamp College in Oadby and delivering high quality teaching of powerful knowledge across a traditional academic curriculum, we will ensure that our students’ achievements provide access to limitless future prospects.

At Beauchamp City Sixth Form we are determined to develop each individual holistically and encourage participation in a wide range of extra-curricular and supercurricular opportunities that will enable students to flourish and maximise their own talents.

As a school based in Leicester City Centre, we will foster a sense of social responsibility to the local community, as well as encourage students to engage with national and international issues to support them in taking control of their future.

We work in partnership with independent schools who have traditionally had the most success in securing places at Oxford, Cambridge and other highly prestigious universities. In addition we are fully engaged with admissions tutors, working to understand how to ensure that our students have the best possible chance of continuing their education in a rich and challenging academic community. We are also working in partnership with local businesses in order to bring our students unique opportunities to engage in work experience that prepares them for their future career.

We look forward to meeting you in person so that we can share in more detail how we can prepare you for the pathway to success.

About Beauchamp City

As part of the Lionheart Academies Trust, Beauchamp City Sixth Form builds on the well-established commitment to academic excellence at Beauchamp College in Oadby. We aim to inspire, educate and empower students through a traditional, academic curriculum so that we may instil a life-long love of learning.

The Lionheart Academies Trust has an undeniable pedigree of delivering excellent academic opportunities at A-Level. Over 80% of our aspirational learners successfully go on to study at university, including a significant proportion transitioning onto STEM courses and Russell Group universities. Many of our learners find success in the world of work, in part because of the work-related opportunities we provide, or successfully enrol on high-quality apprenticeships, including in finance, business and engineering.

Our focus on academic excellence and holistic development means we challenge our students to go beyond the ordinary and ask the questions that really matter. This is why we not only provide opportunities for academic development, but for extra-curricular exploration beyond the classroom, whether that be through a relevant work experience placement, university workshops from the Russell Group and other top tier providers, DofE or international volunteering opportunities to destinations such as Peru and Tanzania.

Regardless of background, we ensure that our students are able to succeed in their future through breaking down barriers that may impact on success.

We are excited by the prospect of delivering a new and unique approach to sixth form education in Leicester City and hope you will join us on our journey to excellence.

Our Vision

As part of the Lionheart Academies Trust, we subscribe to a philosophy of equity and excellence for all.

We promote the development of building learning power and the 4 R’s of: Resilience, Reciprocity, Reflectiveness and Resourcefulness – skills which employers most value in the future workforce. 

We are driven by the desire to create an outstanding sixth form experience, committed to broadening the experiences of aspirational students within Leicester City. Within sixth form, we envisage busy, vibrant and invigorating classrooms, where students are taught by highly qualified and passionate subject specialists.

Through a traditional, academic curriculum, we lay the foundation for entry to the most prestigious universities, including Russell Group and high end apprenticeships. Moreover, through our unique links to local universities and businesses, we aim to place all students on a 2 week work experience internship during their Year 12 Summer holiday. Though, we recognise that Post-16 provision is not just about attaining high grades, but it is also about shaping our students into well-rounded and well-informed individuals. This is why we offer a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities to enrich learning and social development.

Ultimately, our vision is to support aspirational young people, so that they become responsible, confident and well-educated citizens who have a positive role to play in the future economic prosperity of Leicester, Leicestershire and beyond.
