Statement from the Principal

On behalf of The Lionheart Academies Trust and the Beauchamp City Sixth Form Governing Body, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Beauchamp City Sixth Form.

About Beauchamp City About Us

Our mission is to provide specialist academic teaching that ensures access to the most prestigious universities and higher level apprenticeships for any young person from any background.

Students in Leicester City and the surrounding area have a right of access to ‘Powerful Knowledge’. According to Professor Michael Young (UCL Institute of Education), this is
knowledge that is distinct from ‘common sense’, systematic and specialised. Powerful knowledge empowers students, in order to take them beyond their own experiences. Building on the strong A-Level expertise at Beauchamp College in Oadby and delivering high quality teaching of powerful knowledge across a traditional academic curriculum, we will ensure that our students’ achievements provide access to limitless future prospects.

At Beauchamp City Sixth Form we are determined to develop each individual holistically and encourage participation in a wide range of extra-curricular and supercurricular opportunities that will enable students to flourish and maximise their own talents.

As a school based in Leicester City Centre, we will foster a sense of social responsibility to the local community, as well as encourage students to engage with national and international issues to support them in taking control of their future.

We work in partnership with independent schools who have traditionally had the most success in securing places at Oxford, Cambridge and other highly prestigious universities. In addition we are fully engaged with admissions tutors, working to understand how to ensure that our students have the best possible chance of continuing their education in a rich and challenging academic community. We are also working in partnership with local businesses in order to bring our students unique opportunities to engage in work  experience that prepares them for their future career.

We look forward to meeting you in person so that we can share in more detail how we can prepare you for the pathway to success.

James McKenna
