Welcome to the Leicester Partnership School’s website


We provide a range of educational provision for young people, between the ages of 11-16 years,  who have been excluded, or who are at risk of exclusion,  from mainstream education. The provision and support that we offer can be accessed by KS3 and 4 students who are residents of Leicester City.   We currently work with all city secondary schools and a number of county secondary schools to provide appropriate support for these students.  We offer a broad range of full and part time educational programmes and courses and also work closely with a number of alternative provision providers throughout the city and county to provide students with access to a range of high quality, accredited, vocational courses and programmes .


In July 2019 Ofsted  judged our education provision and support arrangements to be good and reported that …..


“The school’s curriculum is personalised to meet pupils’ academic and personal development needs. Teachers plan lessons to broaden pupils’ knowledge and skills and to give them a purpose for learning.” 

“ The large majority of pupils return to mainstream education. This is because they make significant progress in learning to manage their behaviour.”


Follow the links above to find out more about the provision and support that we offer.  As well as providing information about the provision and support that we offer these links will also provide you with access to further information relating to the work of the LPS. In particular there is information about referral arrangements.


One of our key priorities is to ensure that children are able to learn in a safe, caring and enriching environment. Children are taught how to keep themselves safe, to develop positive and healthy relationships and how to avoid situations where they might be at risk, including by being exploited.


In July 2019 Ofsted  judged our safeguarding arrangements to be effective and reported that …..


“There is a strong culture of safeguarding throughout the school. Staff and leaders, including members of the management committee, have a good understanding of the predominant risks facing pupils.”
