Ellesmere College is a large special school located in Leicester providing education for up to 426 children and young people aged between 4-19 years. Students have a range of complex learning and communication needs, including ASD and associated behaviours, hearing and visual impairments and a wide range of learning difficulties both moderate and severe.
Our main site caters for 306 students with a range of needs in Braunstone on the edge of the city with easy transport links as we’re just a couple of minutes from the M1.
Two additional sites, due to open during the 21-22 academic year will be as follows:
1. A 60 place 5-19 provision for students with complex needs in the areas of communication, interaction and autism. (Knighton Fields Centre, Herrick Road)
2. A 60 place Post-16 provision for students with a range of needs with an emphasis on preparation for adulthood, work related learning and enterprise. (The Rowans, College Street, Highfields)
We have committed and caring staff who really know the individual student; a broad and relevant curriculum with equal attention to academic and vocational learning; a continuous emphasis on the student’s well-being; teaching and support that challenge and move the student forward; a friendly atmosphere and a purposeful “can-do” attitude. As a result of all this, students leave Ellesmere making impressive progress, both academically and socially whatever their type or level of difficulty.
Ellesmere is a busy place. Our highly skilled and ambitious staff team are determined to do their very best for the individual student at all times. There is a wide range of opportunities and experiences on offer that contribute to the development of the whole child.
We are looking to recruit outstanding, committed professionals who are seeking to expand their experience in a vibrant environment where student and staff wellbeing is at the centre.
