Ellesmere Community

Please note we are now open for community bookings

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 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.
