Leysland High School
Countesthorpe Leysland Community College is a coeducational secondary school with academy status, situated on the western edge of Countesthorpe in Leicestershire, England near the A426. It was formed in 2016 by the merger of Countesthorpe Community College and neighbouring Leysland High School. The college forms part of The South Leicestershire Learning Partnership, a multi-academy umbrella trust.  Countesthorpe Community College was established in 1972 with the notable educationalist John Watts as Head Teacher, who developed it as a progressive "open school".
The college occupies the buildings previously used by its predecessor institutions. The former Countesthorpe Community College buildings are notable for their circular plan. The architect was John Barton of Farmer and Dark. The sculpture that was previously in the middle of the courtyard is one of three versions of Dunstable Reel by Phillip King.
The seniors department of Birkett House School is located on the site of Countesthorpe Leysland Community College and its students attend lessons at the college and use its sports and catering facilities.
The band members of Kasabian are ex-students of the college. The college is mentioned by name in the BBC comedy series Big School, in series two, episode four, during a question and answer session about Kasabian.
