Where to find us
To be part of Fullhurst Community College is to transform lives.
We are proud to serve a diverse community of over 1000 students, aged 11-16 years, on our large site in south west Leicester and are oversubscribed each year.
Fullhurst Community College's priority is to provide the highest quality education for every student in a supportive and inspiring environment.
Fullhurst Community College first opened its doors in 1991 and we have never been more excited about our future. Over the next four years we will continue to expand from 1035 students to 1500 students. To facilitate this, a new build is being developed in conjunction with Leicester City Council which will open to students in September 2019.
It is an exciting time to join Fullhurst Community College. In order to meet the essential need for additional school places locally and to enable us to transform the lives of even more young people, Leicester City Council are planning to expand Fullhurst Community College into the nearby vacant site, formerly occupied by Ellesmere College. This is a tremendously exciting opportunity which will not only allow us to welcome more new students to our college, it will also help us to continue to raise standards.
Following a recent annual staff survey, 96% rated the performance of the college as good or very good. 97% said they would recommend the college to prospective parents. We have signed up to work towards achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS). This award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of both staff and pupils. “Staff value the support they receive from senior leaders as well as the focus on their well-being.” Ofsted January 2018
We are keen to welcome colleagues who share our passion for engaging students in learning and inspiring them to achieve. As well as an enthusiastic and supportive team environment, we have first class facilities in all areas and a track record of CPD leading to excellence in the classroom and preparation for promotion. We provide first-class support for all new staff.
"Students at Fullhurst genuinely want to do well and the college provides them with the environment to do so. It is amazing to be part of the success story of a college which improves the lives of students in their community, giving them a chance to stand tall as equals with students from all over the country.” Mrs V Adeniyan Standards and Progress Leader, Maths and ICT
