Countesthorpe Leysland Community College is always open to applications from students wishing to study with us at Key Stage 3, 4 or at 6th Form.

Students are admitted to Countesthorpe Community College in accordance with the Leicestershire Local Authority (LA).

Priority for admission is given to the children of parents who live in our catchment area as currently designated by the LA. This includes the villages of Countesthorpe, Blaby, Arnesby, Shearsby, Kilby, Foston, Peatling Magna, Broughton Astley, Cosby,Whetstone, Sutton in the Elms and Glen Parva.

We are always happy to consider applications from parents who reside outside this catchment area and we receive a number each year. This provision is made assuming that there are places within our planned admission number, which is the number of students in Year 7 that the College can take. Contact the College in the first instance if you would like further information, be put on our mailing list for out of catchment, or to arrange a visit to see the College in action.

The Indicative Admission Number (IAN) is set by the local education authority (Leicestershire County Council). The current IAN is 300.

The following primary schools will all have feeder status:

  • Greenfield
  • Badgerbrook
  • Blaby Stokes
  • Whetstone St Peters
  • Blaby Thistly Meadow
  • Kilby Primary School
  • Arnesby Primary school

Significant time, effort and resources are devoted to creating the most positive transition process for all incoming students. In the term prior to arrival at the College, our staff visit all the feeder High Schools and hold detailed discussions about each new entrant, in order to ascertain individual needs, organise support, and allocate students to the appropriate courses.
