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.

In 1975, the school began enrolling pupils at the school one year prior than the usual transfer system. Pupils transfer from locations situated in the catchment area, such as; Markfield, Thornton Many pupils are also from bagworth, Stanton-under-Bardon, and Leicester Forest East. However, the school admits youngsters from areas outside catchment. Furthermore, there are currently over 600 pupils attending the school.
