Groby Community College is a coeducational upper school and sixth form with academy status, located in Groby in the English county of Leicestershire.[1]

The school shares a campus with Brookvale High School, and previously they were both community schools administered by Leicestershire County Council. Both schools converted to academy status in partnership in September 2012. However, they continue to coordinate with Leicestershire County Council for admissions. A significant number of pupils also join Groby Community College from South Charnwood High School.[2]

Groby Community College offers GCSEs and BTECs as programmes of study for pupils, while students in the sixth form have the option to study from a range of A Levels and further BTECs.[3]

The school is now linked with Brookvale High School, with lessons happening cross-campus.
