About Us

About Us Leicester City has a total of 93 (maintained, voluntary aided and trust) schools/colleges, made up of 68 Infant, Junior and Primary Schools, 16 Secondary Schools and 9 Special Schools/Pupil Referral Units. 

There are 17 Academies/Free Schools in Leicester City.

Our Commitment to Raising Achievement Leicester City Council has a commitment to excellence in education by working with partners to raise achievement of children and young people and ensure they do this in successful schools and settings. 

Recent years have seen a significant change in the educational landscape. In Leicester we have sought to develop a partnership approach which draws upon the diverse and rich resource available to us within the local authority, our settings, schools and academies. We are ambitious for our schools and young people and want to ensure that all partners, including ourselves, are maximising efforts to bring about the improvements necessary to reach the targets we set for our City.  We recognise that schools and academies are responsible for their own improvement but we take seriously our responsibility to promote high standards and our accountability for the quality of provision and outcomes.

Ofsted results confirm the success of our strategy to raise achievement, with growing numbers of primary, secondary and special schools being judged as good or outstanding. 

During the 2018/19 academic year 84% percent of schools in Leicester City were rated good or outstanding.
