The school offers education for pupils aged between 11 and 16 years. South Charnwood High School could justifiably be called a ‘family’ school since it has educated several generations of many local families. The school’s history and its spacious and attractive location contribute to its particular character and atmosphere. The School also welcomes a number of pupils from outside our catchment area, which we feel is evidence of our good reputation and the high esteem in which the school is held.
