What the school offers its staff

As a school, we are committed to continuous improvement so that we can continue to evolve to match the changing needs of our students, parents and carers, staff and wider school community. We are keen to utilise the latest thinking and technologies to ensure all our students are best equipped to achieve success in the future.

Our governors and staff are fully committed to serving the needs of our school community in these challenging social times, including continuing to develop the very strong academic performance of our school.

Littleover Community School is an 11-18 comprehensive, community school. We are a Local Authority maintained school and have a positive working relationship with Derby City Council. We are not an Academy and have no current plans to join a new, or existing, Academy chain.

Our school is situated four miles to the south west of the centre of Derby, in pleasant, spacious grounds. We have a proud academic and pastoral record and the school is always popular with parents and carers looking for school places, within our own catchment area and beyond.

We currently welcome 295 students into Year 7 each year, giving us a current roll of approximately 1850, including a Sixth form of over 350 students.

It will always be our aim at Littleover Community School to care for all of our students as individuals. We also wish to provide each of them with an enjoyable and varied learning experience and help them to fulfil their potential. We aim to help students develop the resilience they will need to manage the challenges they may face, not only in school but also in the wider world. Our aim is simple, to assist our students to flourish now and in the future.
