Ellesmere College believes in ensuring young people attending the school should have the same opportunities as their peers to access their local community, attend activities of their choice and have opportunities to follow their personal interests.
Ellesmere College provides the following opportunities for our young people at our Aylestone Meadows site:
3-3.50pm - Primary Multi- Sports Club
3.00-4.00pm Bike Club
3.00-4.00pm – Primary Dance Club

Ellesmere College also provides opportunities for our young people to showcase their talents including accessing sporting fixtures, community dance, arts and music events.
The Eco-Schools programme provides exciting opportunities for students in curriculum time as well as outside the classroom. Learning outside of the classroom (LOTC) has been identified as ‘memorable activities leading to memorable learning and positively contributing to pupil safety’. LOTC provides positive benefits to all groups of young people and supports a rich, relevant, broad and balanced curriculum.
