Welcome to Littleover Community School
Littleover Community School Sixth Form is large enough to offer a wide selection of subjects at AS and A level and an extensive range of opportunities and activities. However, it is small enough for every student to be recognised as an individual who matters and who is valued. We pride ourselves on knowing students as individuals; this enables us to offer the best possible advice and guidance.
We have a well developed system for tracking and monitoring student progress and we also believe strongly in keeping parents informed in order to maximize the chances of success for each individual.
Our strong academic ethos and standards help to ensure that students achieve their full potential in their chosen areas of study but we fully understand that preparing students for Higher Education and employment involves much more than this. To that end we provide all our students with the opportunity to widen their experiences and learn new skills. We seek every opportunity to celebrate and reward the achievements of our students.
- A full Induction programme designed to help you make a successful transition from GCSE to A level study.

The 16-19 Bursary Fund helps 16- to 19 year olds continue in education, where they might otherwise struggle for financial reasons. It is made up of two parts – bursaries of £1200 per year to the most vulnerable young people, and a discretionary fund for schools, colleges etc to distribute.
Littleover Community School will follow the procedures agreed by post 16 providers across the City in relation to eligibility, application and payment of the post 16 bursary.
Approximately 95% of our students go on to study at university having completed a range of AS and A level subjects. While we are proud of our high academic standards, we also recognise the importance of providing students with an enjoyable and enriching experience throughout their time in the Sixth Form.
We offer a wide range of enrichment sessions in addition to a detailed tutorial programme designed to broaden the experiences of students, develop students as well rounded individuals and prepare them thoroughly for life at university and beyond.
The vast majority of our students go on to study at university; we have an established and highly successful system in place to support them through the application process and our close links with local universities including Derby, Nottingham, Nottingham Trent and Leicester benefit all of our students.
We also have particular expertise and experience in assisting students who wish to apply to Oxford or Cambridge or to more competitive courses such as Medicine. However, we also appreciate that some students may wish to follow different post 18 pathways such as apprenticeships, employment and gap years, and we support them in developing their plans.
