Charnwood College is a coeducational secondary school and sixth form is located on Thorpe Hill in Loughborough.


Charnwood College provides an all-through education for students aged 11–19 across Loughborough. It was officially launched in Summer 2012 by bringing together the former Burleigh Community College and Garendon High School to create one college. It was the first time two schools had come together in Leicestershire.


Charnwood College has a 50 acre campus, with extensive sports facilities including a swimming pool, two gymnasiums, two work-out gyms, a dry play pitch and three multisports halls. It also has multiple specialist teaching blocks and extensive IT equipment.

There is also an off campus boarding house, called Field House which attracts students from around the world.


Charnwood College is the first school in the United Kingdom to have an official LipDub video to showcase the campus. There have been over 20,000 views.
