Rushey Mead School


Rushey Mead School is a vibrant and highly successful city comprehensive school which serves communities in the north of Leicester city. We welcome every student of whatever ability and background and strive to provide the best and most appropriate education for each individual. Our aim is to ensure the academic, personal and social development of all students so that they can develop their potential both in school and in the wider community.

Rushey Mead's success has been recognised by Ofsted and the school is designated as outstanding. In October 2012 Rushey Mead School underwent its annual ‘Challenge Partners’ review. A team of trained reviewers, led by an Ofsted inspector spent two days in school observing lessons and discussing the quality of the school's provision for students, in particular with regard to achievement and teaching. We were very pleased to be awarded ‘outstanding’ by the review team. A copy of the final report can be found here.

In 2011 Rushey Mead School was awarded National Teaching School status, one of the first 100 schools across the country. This provides us the opportunity to work with the very best schools in the country to make sure every student at Rushey Mead continues to experience world class teaching and learning.

It is an exciting time at Rushey Mead School, with a £17 million pound building project completed. Our new facilities will make an already great school even better.

Although buildings, national projects and affirmation from Ofsted are all very positive, our aim is to ensure that every student's potential is realised. The staff, students and families at Rushey Mead work together to support each learner, making sure they have every opportunity to achieve. We hope that by the time our students leave us they will be successful, confident and equipped with the skills for their futures.
