Encouraging excellence, valuing people

 Welcome Message

Thank you for your interest in our school.  South Charnwood is an academy High School which now admits pupils of all abilities from 11-16 years of age. It is a popular school with 862 pupils on roll at present.  


The school is situated in twenty acres of open countryside and draws the vast majority of pupils from the nearby villages of Markfield, Thornton and Stanton-under-Bardon, as well as from Leicester Forest East, Mostly from Stafford Leys school.  South Charnwood could justifiably be called a “family” school since it has educated several generations of many local families.  The school also welcomes a number of pupils from other areas, which we feel is evidence of our good reputation and the high esteem in which the school is held.
