The college and the city are finally coming-down from the high of Leicester City’s Premier league win. Many of our staff and students ventured out on Monday to help give the Premier League champions a huge welcome through the streets of Leicester and partied in the park with the blue army. The buzz within college recently has replicated that of the whole city and it is certainly an exciting and dynamic time to be living in Leicester.

If Claudio Ranieri and his men have shown the people of Leicester (and the world!) anything at all, it is that dedication, determination, self-belief and team-work can help you achieve your dreams. That is a message we should all share and it’s a true inspiration for all our young people.

As we approach half-term there are all-manner of activities and events taking place. Friday sees our year 9 students out on a trip to the Space Centre. Virtually all our year 9’s will be attending and a trip to the Space Centre is always a brilliant day out.

As ever at Ellesmere, numerous sporting events are taking place. Head over to Twitter and check out @ActiveEllesmere for the wide-range of sporting opportunities that are taking place.

Staff and students are currently finalising ideas for The Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild event (Check the ‘#30DaysWild’ on Twitter for information, events and ideas).   

The event runs from the 1st - 30th June 2016. 30 Days Wild is the UK's month-long nature challenge. The Wildlife Trust are encouraging schools to sign-up, join in & do something wild every day for a month. Head over to the Trust’s website for more information (

To mark our 1st anniversary since being formally opened, Ellesmere College is celebrating the success of key Leicester based sports teams and individuals over the last year.

The event will also celebrate the partnerships created between the clubs and Ellesmere College and the impact of these on disabled people and special educational need students. We are expecting visitors from Leicester Riders, Leicester City ladies and Leicester Hockey.

We will be starting at 14:00 at our Community Café with students hosting and serving tea, coffee and cakes. We will then move into the Main Hall for a presentation with our Student Council representatives at 14:20. There will be a buffet after the event at 14.50 pm hosted by GNG FC at the Riverside Pavilion.
