Thomas Estley Community College

Thomas Estley is a highly successful 11-16 Community College serving the villages of Broughton Astley, Cosby and Whetstone, rated Outstanding by OFSTED. We are part of an Umbrella Trust comprising Cosby Primary School, Leysland High School, Countesthorpe Community College and Thomas Estley Community College.

The college has a strong tradition of innovative curriculum planning and its curriculum has been a national case study with aspects adopted by a number of schools locally and nationally.

The college pursues excellence in all it does, placing the learner at the heart of its work. The ethos is a can do, inclusive one. Students enjoy all the learning opportunities they are offered and they rise to the challenge of the high expectations we have of them.

Thomas Estley is a Teaching School, lead school in the Thomas Estley Learning Alliance (TELA) including almost 40 secondary and primary schools, and a National Support School. As a result the college engages in significant School to School Support and CPD provision. We are also a centre for School Direct placements for those looking to train as a teacher.

The college is a vibrant, innovative and forward-looking institution, a place which never stands still but constantly seeks improvement.
