Leicestershire County Council (LCC) is responsible for the provision of educational services in Charnwood. The LCC website has sections that cover:

The education area of the site also provides information on subjects ranging from libraries, museums and education news to an A-Z listing information about schools and special educational needs teaching in Leicestershire.


Information about local day nurseries, pre-schools and playgroups can be found within the Education pages of Leicestershire County Council's website.

Also LCC's Family Information Service (FIS) provides information, advice and guidance to families who have children or young people aged 0-20 years and to professionals who work with children, young people and families.

More information about schools, childcare, family services and Sure Start Centres can be found at the Gov.uk website.

Further and higher education providers

By entering your postcode into My Charnwood, you can find out about education providers in your area, together with their most recent Ofsted reports. Alternatively you can use the GOV.UK to find schools, and Sure Start Children's Centres.

Those interested in further education may also find the Student Outreach & Recruitment (SOAR) website of interest. The SOAR team works with schools, groups and organisations to help explain the benefits of higher education in a fun and informal way. 

Adult Education in Leicestershire comes under the Adult Learning Service of LCC. Information about the range of learning opportunities available can be found on the LCC webpages for adult learning.
