Welcome to Lutterworth College
Enabling every young person to learn, flourish & succeed.
Welcome to Lutterworth College.
Formerly known as Lutterworth Grammar School, we have a long tradition of providing a quality education with high expectations for all our students both in and out of the classroom.
We always say that we know who we are: an inclusive, non-selective, comprehensive, Church of England, 11-19 school offering an all-through education and the very best of outcomes for our young people.
Our motto is Sapere Aude or Dare to be Wise. We dare to be wise in everything we do; we want our students to be the best they can be.
Lutterworth College is a school steeped in history dating back to 1880 and we are proud of our rich heritage. We have always had a strong reputation for providing a high quality education for young people and we have a track record of delivering results for our students when it counts.
Our recent set of examination results are truly historic both in terms of the attainment of students, and the progress students have made since being at the College. Our A level results saw no less than 24 students achieving 3 or more A*/A grades and we were very pleased to have three of these students go up to Cambridge this Autumn to continue their studies.
Overall the attainment rates at the Sixth Form were as follows:
A*-A grades = 27% of all results
A*-B grades = 58% of all results
A*-C grades = 86% of all results
A*-E grades = 99% of all results
These results put the College’s Sixth Form well above what was achieved nationally at A level in other schools and significantly better than any previous results in the school’s history.
In a challenging time for GCSE results, the school again exceeded expectations in 2017 with around a quarter of all grades in English Language, English Literature & Mathematics being gained within the highest tier 9-7 (A*-A). In English & Maths the pass rate at A*-C (9-4) was equally impressive at close to 90%.
In 2017, Lutterworth College became ...
'the highest attaining school in Leicestershire'.
Achieving great examination outcomes is important for young people to be able to pursue their dreams but we know school life is about so much more than certificates and qualifications. This is why we place just as much emphasis on our pastoral care and support for young people so they are able to also flourish and succeed during their education here. The holistic development of our students into responsible, mature and respectful young adults is incredibly important to us and providing them with a breadth of opportunities and extra-curricular activities is a fundamental part of what we do. We aim to provide society with young people who can truly benefit both themselves and the world at large.
In 2015 we introduced our first cohort of Year 7 students to the school since the 1960s following school-age restructure in Leicestershire. For the first time in the school’s history there are students in from Year 7 through to Year 13 in the current academic year. This enables the school to offer a truly all-through, seamless education from primary school to GCSE’s and onto A levels, and university or employment. Our large Sixth Form is thriving an we offer an extensive choice of subjects with a wide range of A Level and vocational qualifications to choose from.
Our latest OFSTED inspection was undertaken in November 2017 where the College was rated 'Good' in all aspects - a copy of the OFSTED report can be found by clicking here.
From 2017-18 Lutterworth College became an oversubscribed school in Year 7 filling all the spaces currently available. Rolling forward this pattern seems set fair to continue in 2018-19.
We are an inclusive College; as such, we attach great importance to understanding each student's individual needs, helping all our young people to make the best of their abilities.
