We are a high achieving 11-14 academy in North West Leicestershire and we pride ourselves on giving our young people every opportunity to learn and grow – both inside and outside of the classroom and in their academic and personal life..

 Our young people do so well that the college is ranked in the top ten percent of schools in the country for expected progress at Key Stage 3. We are specialists in supporting young people during their journey from primary school to the start of their GCSE studies. We have outstanding partnerships with our local schools and this ensures that our young people are supported in every stage of their learning and growing journey.

 We have high expectations of our young people and we provide a wealth of opportunities for students to develop their skills, talents and interests. We have a varied and exciting curriculum as well as a unique specialism programme in year 9 – this programme gives our students opportunities to experience aspects of GCSE subjects that help them to make better choices for future learning.

 We are above all a community college and we are committed to being a responsible and valued member of our local community. We also strongly believe that we are here to support you – the parents and carers –with providing an environment where your daughter or son can be happy, successful and supported.

 In 2012, Ofsted stated that we are ‘a good school that provides a good education – with much that is outstanding’. They also said that we ‘offer a caring and supportive environment for students’.

 At Ibstock Community College, we are confident that your son or daughter will be able to access everything that they will need to be a life long learner and a positive and productive member of the local, national and global community.

 Come and see us weave magic!
