Ellesmere College has places for 250 students, both boys and girls. We opened the doors to our brand new building in August 2014 and also welcomed out first cohort of primary students. Ellesmere also caters for the needs of secondary and post 16 students.
We have a 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 and, as a result of all this, students leave Ellesmere making impressive progress, both academically and socially whatever their type or level of difficulty.
Ellesmere College considers itself to be a Specialist Sports College. We are proud of our strong links across the City, County and beyond in the area of disability sport. We strive to work with a range of students and young adults in areas from fundamental movement to Paralympic pathways. We run a variety of after school clubs and have three dedicated disability sports development officers who help us to achieve our aims within this area. Their work benefits students at Ellesmere and those across Leicester City and County.
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.
