Crown Hills Community College (often abbreviated as CHCC), is a secondary school in Leicester, England with more than 1200 pupils and more than 200 staff members.

Crown Hills is a sports college and with a large field for sports, especially the football grounds called Goals.[1]

In March and April 2001, a resistant strain of tuberculosis made 74 pupils and staff at the school ill and could be detected in another 220. In 2006, Dr Philip Monk, consultant in communicable diseases for Leicestershire, said the strain was particularly resistant to the body's immune system defenses.[2]
