Admissions – Yr10/11
The college welcomes applications from students across the city and county and has an increasing number of young people joining us from outside our normal catchment area. It is important to stress that whilst Beauchamp is an independent State Funded academy, we have commissioned Leicestershire County Council to manage and administer the applications and appeals process.
