Welcome to Groby Community College
As the Headteacher of Brookvale Groby Learning Campus I would like to welcome you to UCAS Progress where you can find all about the courses on offer at our college.
Brookvale Groby is an 11-19 comprehensive college. A significant number of students also join us from other local schools. We are a Leading Edge partner school which is an organization representing the best schools in the country. We also hold the Equalities Award, Artsmark Gold, Enhanced Anti-bullying Award and Enhanced Healthy Schools Award.
We are a highly successful college with some of the best results in the county. In our 2017 GCSE results we achieved well above the national and local average. 78% of students achieved 5A*-C GCSEs including English and maths.For the last four years we have achieved progress rates at A level which are well above the national average. As a result of our excellent results we have become a "leading edge" school which is an organisation representing the best schools in the country.
Our motto is a ‘achieving excellence together' as we believe that we must work in partnership with our students, parents and carers, staff and the community to provide an outstanding education for our young people. We place a strong emphasis on ensuring a high quality of teaching and learning so that every student has equal access to the very best conditions in order to achieve and succeed.
The ethos of the college is supportive and welcoming; it is also challenging and stimulating. As the Principal I have high expectations for our students both academically and in terms of their behaviour and the contribution they make to the local and wider community. I believe in respecting our students as individuals so they can grow and develop into young adults. Respect is a right but this comes with responsibilities. We expect our young people to behave well and work hard at all times.
Our values drive our college and at the heart of these is a core belief in being proud of Groby and our achievements. Our aim and aspiration is to be an outstanding college in order to provide our community with the best possible local education we can.
We actively encourage parents to continue to play a central role in their children's education once they have transferred to the campus, including getting involved in the various family learning opportunities on offer. We also have a vibrant Parent Forum, which meets each term to enable you to give your feedback on the progress of the college.
Our college is truly the centre of the community and we are proud to be at the heart of it. I hope that you too find this as special a place as I do.
Our aim is to work with students and parents to ensure that our young people:
- Achieve academically by providing challenge and support.
- Develop the skills and attributes which are essential to success in later life.
We are very proud of our students and their academic achievements. This summer our results were excellent. The overall headline results for all A levels and Level 3 BTEC's were:
- 27% of all grades are A or A*
