To be part of Fullhurst Community College is to transform lives. We are proud to serve a diverse community of over 900 students, aged 11-16 years, on our large site in south west Leicester and are oversubscribed each year. As the first school in Leicester to be rebuilt under the ‘Building Schools for the Future’ programme, Fullhurst provides an exceptional environment in which to learn and work.
Students follow personalised pathways for learning which meet their individual needs. Our curriculum is broad and varied enabling each student to thrive. We also offer an extensive range of extra-curricular activities including sport, music, art and languages. We want our students to be excited by their learning in the classroom and beyond, committed to achieving their very best and confident about their futures. In 2016, our Progress 8 measure (the new government performance indicator) was +0.65. This score is exceptional – demonstrating the strength of our curriculum and that all groups of Fullhurst students achieve beyond national targets.
We believe that resilience is key to our young people exceeding their potential and passionately instil a positive ‘I can do outlook’. We are extremely proud of our student progress and achievement which continues to increase year on year. In 2016, 58% of students achieved A*-C in English and Maths, with a significant proportion achieving the top grades of A*/A. In 2012, Ofsted graded Fullhurst ‘good’ in all categories and in 2013 a HMI subject inspection of mathematics graded all areas ‘good’ again. Challenge Partner reviews, most recently in 2014, suggest the school has many outstanding features.
