Open Day and Evening - Thursday 4th October, 2018

LCS will be holding our Open Day and Open Evening on Thursday 4th October, 2018, when you and your child will have the opportunity to find out more about Littleover Community School.

Open Day

The school will be open to the public on the morning of 4th October, between 10.00 am and 12 noon. Lessons will continue as usual and visitors will be able to enter classrooms and observe us at work on a normal Thursday morning. Student Guides will help to show you around and refreshments will be available afterwards, when there will be a chance to ask questions and discuss what you have seen with senior staff.

Open Evening

LCS' Open Evening will be held from 5.30pm to 7.00pm on the same day. There will be a programme of continuous displays and exhibitions, together with timed events. A meeting will be held at 7.00 pm in the School Hall for parents of prospective students for September 2019.

A one-way system will be in operation during open evening and visitors should arrive via the Pastures Hill entrance and leave through the bottom exit on Fresco Drive. There will be limited parking on site but if you can avoid arriving by car, this would be advisable.

I do hope you will be able to attend one or both of these events, and I look forward to meeting you. If I can be of further help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Keeping Your Children Safe

Posted 24th September 2018

Keeping Your Children Safe

We are very concerned about the road safety situation on Pastures Hill at school picking up time (3.15-3.30pm).
In order to keep your children safe we ask that:

  • You arrange to pick them up well away from the school gates. A short extra distance to walk will not be a problem.
  • You do not pick up your child on the opposite side of Pastures Hill from the school.
  • You do not encourage your child to cross Pastures Hill, except at the marked crossings.
  • You avoid obstructing the flow of traffic and blocking the drives of local residents.

If possible, encourage your child to walk or cycle to school. This is healthier for them, and safer for all students.
Thank you for your consideration – we want everyone to be safe

Congratulations to all LCS pupils who received their GCSE results today.

The 2018 GCSE results are excellent!

A-Level Results

Posted 16th August 2018

A-Level Results

Congratulations to all LCS Year 13 students who received their A Level results today.

It has been another excellent year for A Level results at LCS.  We are delighted to see that our Year 13 students have performed exceptionally well, maintaining the high standards we have come to expect over many years.

  • Approximately half of all grades were A*-B
  • Over 75% of grades were A*-C. 
  • 16 students achieved 3 or more A*/A grades
  • 36 students achieved ABB or better
  • 47 students achieved BBB or better

Whilst the headline figures are of course pleasing, what is more important to us is that the vast majority of students have achieved the grades they needed for university entry, and are going on to the next stage in their lives well prepared and with a strong foundation of knowledge, understanding and skills which will serve them well.

There are many students throughout the ability range who have, through sheer hard work as well as natural ability, matched or exceeded their target grades, and all deserve congratulations for their achievements.

Well done!
