Wilsthorpe School

Wilsthorpe School joined The Two Counties Trust in December 2018. Based in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire the school provides secondary education to students aged 11-18 with just over 950 students on roll.

Everyone at Wilsthorpe School shares a deep belief in young people and a desire to ensure that every child achieves their best.  Our belief is that learning should be an inspirational journey, where all are challenged to achieve great things and to lead others, in a climate of dignity and respect

Leadership and management was judged to be outstanding at the last inspection (November 2016)  and overall the school was judged to be good.

In 2017 Wilsthorpe was successful in securing a University place for a Y13 leaver at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, one of the world’s best universities.  In 2018, two Y13 leavers secured Oxbridge places, one at Oxford and one at Cambridge. 

Extra-curricular provision at this safe and caring school is rich.  Comprehensive programmes involve substantial learning outside the classroom, in particular activities and clubs help to develop autonomy and leadership in sporting, artistic, theatrical, technical, creative and cultural opportunities.
