About The College

Welcome to The City of Leicester College

The City of Leicester College is a vibrant and popular 11–19 school with a commitment to the highest level of pastoral care and academic achievement. We are a truly comprehensive multi-cultural school offering unique opportunities for all students.

Our ‘motto’ Ambition for All reflects our aim to challenge every member of our community to be the best they can be, in every aspect.  This motto is underpinned by our four Character Pillars; Intellectual, Moral, Community and Performance.  You can find out more about our Character Pillars on our College Ethos and Values page, but we have found time and again that this program develops academically able students who have the courage to take the opportunities that come their way while being kind to those around them.  This success is shown in our examination results and fantastic character of our students. 

We have an extremely diverse community and respect, civility and honesty are at the heart of what makes The City of Leicester College such a wonderful place to work and to learn.  Students and staff from all backgrounds can come and have their differences respected and their contributions valued.  Student success is numerous and varied; from young sports men and women performing at national level, to academic brilliance gaining places at the Oxbridge Universities. Students excel in the arts, which we are passionate about and see as essential to developing the whole person.

We are delighted that you have taken an interest in the school and invite you to visit us to experience the life of the school first hand.
