Ellesmere Community

Please note all community bookings are currently suspended due to Covid19

Ellesmere College is committed to playing a role in the wellbeing and inclusion of the local community. We achieve this through:

  1. Ellesmere facilities: provides opportunities for groups to hire facilities at Ellesmere during term time. This includes our main 4 badminton court size sports hall, hall/Theatre, meeting rooms and external facilities including our BMX/mountain bike trails. Facilities are available each evening and Saturday morning. During the weekend and school holidays our facilities are available to hire for ‘one-off’ bookings. This includes both sporting and non-sporting events. Please feel free to contact us with details of your requirements. 

  2. Ellesmere Active: provides the co-ordination of physical activity and sport opportunities for special schools throughout the city, county and Rutland. This includes the co-ordination of the special school PE, sport and physical activity group Inspire to Lead. Ellesmere also works collaboratively with the Youth Sport Trust and Leicestershire and Rutland Sport to provide advice and support to the School Sport Partnerships about the inclusion of SEND and disabled people in mainstream schools through Project Ability.

  3. Ellesmere Local: is the engagement and involvement in the local community surrounding the College. This includes aspects such as our community café, supporting local re-cycling, hosting Leicester City Bike Jam, fundraising for good causes, and providing items to local food banks.
