We are incredibly excited about the prospect of seeing young people develop during their time at Beauchamp and want to work closely in partnership with parents/carers and their children. Making a decision about where to send your child to study can often be difficult, however we believe that Beauchamp offers the very best opportunity for academic success and the most rewarding journey from Year 7 to 11 and onto KS5, work, or further training.
The high standards and aspirations of our young people coupled with inspirational teaching means students at Beauchamp College demonstrate exceptional achievement and we are proud of the fact that Beauchamp is consistently placed among the best schools in Leicestershire and beyond. This success is based on the commitment and curiosity of the wonderful Beauchamp students, encouraging parent/carer engagement, the enthusiasm and experience of all staff, and the supportive monitoring of academic and holistic development of all learners.
As our students come from a range of cultural, ethnic, economic, linguistic and faith backgrounds, this has greatly enriched our daily college experience as we learn together and from one another. Inspired by this diversity we believe in pursuing excellence and equity for all. As a result, every year our students prove they can compete successfully in all fields as they move onto university, work and other training opportunities such as apprenticeships.
We feel privileged to work at Beauchamp and believe it is a fantastic college that provides our students with a high quality education, continual support and a huge range of other opportunities. To get a flavour of this we invite all prospective students and their parents/carers for a tour of our college during the college day so that you can get a true view of our daily college routine.
Over the last two years, Beauchamp has run close to 100 trips. Some of the highlights included trips to France, Tanzania and Los Angeles. Out-of-classroom learning makes a unique contribution to a students’ education and offers many varied benefits. At Beauchamp College students have many opportunities to access these activities within various departments. During the Summer of 2018 students and staff travelled to Tanzania to take part in voluntary work with Camps International. In 2020 a similar trip will take place to Costa Rica. Students have also had the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles with Media Studies. A ski trip to Austria is planned for 2019 which will enable many students to demonstrate their resilience, as they master their technique. Many UK residentials have also taken place during the year.
At Beauchamp, our aim is to provide a curriculum that engages and challenges all students and supports our vision of academic excellence and holistic development. The introduction of our KS3 provision in September 2017 has enabled us to view our curriculum as a 7 year journey which will equip our students with the necessary skills and knowledge to enable them to progress through life with confidence and engender a life-long love of learning.
On behalf of all students, staff, governors and parents, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you and to Beauchamp’s Alumni Society. Let me take this opportunity to introduce the aims of the Alumni Society to you and commend its intention to seek your involvement and support for our students and for your past college.

The new building reflects a strengthened commitment by the College to ensure that students with Special Education Needs continue to receive the support required to fully benefit from high quality education.
“Young people shouldn’t have to compromise when it comes to education. We’re committed to delivering the highest quality provision that ensures equal access to an equal education” says Lionheart Executive and Beauchamp College Principal, Kath Kelly.
Year 10 student Katie - who has required hearing support from the College for 4 years - also detailed to guests the ways in which the new Centre might help her: “The building is quiet, bright and big. The staff are wonderful and give us emotional support as well as lots of help in lessons”.
Beauchamp College hopes that their efforts in raising the standard of care and provision for young people with Special Education Needs will set an exacting precedent for education in Leicestershire and the East Midlands as a whole.
Beauchamp College is an ’Outstanding’ 11-19 school in Oadby and part of The Lionheart Academies Trust, a family of 11 schools based in and around Leicestershire.
