Welcome to Minsthorpe Community College

College is closed for the summer – Click here to view the 2014/15 term dates. ×

Our College strives to ensure that each student achieves his or her best from their time with us. Our students get just one opportunity to prepare for adult life – and we know that the ‘Minsthorpe Way’ prepares our students for a very successful transition to the world of further education or employment.

We are privileged to have a dedicated, talented and experienced team of over 300 staff who work closely with each student to develop their skills, talents and abilities to the full. In addition to developing enquiring and receptive minds, we give students a sense of belonging, pride and above all a feeling of community.

Staff and students work in partnership at Minsthorpe, giving our students clear aims for their journey with us, where our students thrive on our positive behaviour system. Our insistence on high standards of uniform and presentation means that our students are ready for their learning.

We have great expectations of all of our students and instil a ‘can do’ mentality from the start. The student motto ‘Always believe that you can achieve’ enables all students to have a sense of aspiration and ambition. The staff motto ‘No Child Left Behind’ is our commitment to doing everything we can to try and ensure that every child achieves their ambition, and we are very proud this year to be celebrating record breaking results from Summer 2013 at both Key Stage 4 and Post 16.

We hope our website gives you a good insight into our College and that you find the information you are looking for. Should you require any further details, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
