About Fullhurst Community College
To be part of Fullhurst Community College is to transform lives. We are proud to serve a diverse community of over 1000 students, aged 11-16 years, on our large site in south west Leicester and are oversubscribed each year.
Fullhurst Community College's priority is to provide the highest quality education for every student in a supportive and inspiring environment.
Fullhurst Community College first opened its doors in 1991 and we have never been more excited about our future. Over the next four years we will continue to expand from 1035 students to 1500 students. To facilitate this, a new build is being developed in conjunction with Leicester City Council which will open to students in September 2019.
Mr Steve Piggot
In 2016, our Progress 8 measure was +0.48, the highest in Leicester and in 2017 it is +0.64, placing Fullhurst in the top 200 schools in England. This score is exceptional; demonstrating the strength of our curriculum and that all groups of Fullhurst students achieve beyond national targets.
Fullhurst Community College was inspected by Ofsted in January 2018. The visit was the first short inspection carried out since the college was judged to be good in October 2012. We are very proud to announce that Fullhurst Community College continues to be good.
Challenge Partner reviews, most recently in 2017, suggest the school has many outstanding features. In June 2017, Fullhurst was recognised by the Department for Education as Secondary Regional Champion at the Pupil Premium Awards and in December 2017, we were extremely proud to be announced as the Leicester Mercury School of the Year 2017.

It is an exciting time to join Fullhurst Community College. In order to meet the essential need for additional school places locally and to enable us to transform the lives of even more young people, Leicester City Council are planning to expand Fullhurst Community College into the nearby vacant site, formerly occupied by Ellesmere College. This is a tremendously exciting opportunity which will not only allow us to welcome more new students to our college, it will also help us to continue to raise standards.
Following a recent annual staff survey, 96% rated the performance of the college as good or very good. 97% said they would recommend the college to prospective parents. We have signed up to work towards achieving the Wellbeing Award for Schools (WAS). This award focuses on ensuring effective practice and provision is in place that promotes the emotional wellbeing and mental health of both staff and pupils. “Staff value the support they receive from senior leaders as well as the focus on their well-being.” Ofsted January 2018
