Widely regarded as Leicestershire’s flagship comprehensive, The Beauchamp College is a co-educational Leading Edge Upper School. It has a diverse mix of student culture with over 2000 students between the ages of 14 and 19, with over 1000 students in the sixth form, making it the largest in the country. The school enjoys an excellent reputation throughout the UK and abroad.
The Sports centre, which has become an important facility for the whole community, incorporates a full sized sports hall with eight badminton courts and two basketball courts, one of which is to international standard. As well as the usual changing facilities there is a special area for seminars. Funding for the project has included a contribution from Sport England.
A suite of external and internal changing facilities, together with the main areas, has been designed to Football Foundation, Sport England and Basketball England specifications.
