South Charnwood High School is a coeducational middle school with academy status, located between the villages of Markfield and Thornton in the Hinckley and Bosworth district of Leicestershire, England. The school was established in 1935 thus various additions to the school have been made since. The current headmaster is Mr. Andrew Morris.
