Home > About the College
Sir Jonathan North Community College serves the educational needs of a large and diverse area of South Leicester and is unique as the only girls’ state school in Leicester and Leicestershire, educating students aged 11-16 from across the city. The College gained DfES Specialist Status for Visual Arts in September 2001 and was re-designated as a High Performing Specialist School for Visual Art, Science and Mathematics in September 2005 and Applied Learning in December 2006.
We work closely with local primary schools and have established very effective cross-phase co-operation. We have an extensive programme of out-of-school hours activities. The grounds of the College are shared with The Lancaster School with whom we offer some joint KS4 provision. The College has a large Adult Learning programme. We work in partnership with many other council services and the voluntary sector.
The College is consistently over-subscribed. The current number on roll is 1200. There are approximately 80 teaching staff and 90 part-time and full-time support staff.
