Kilisick is an area in Arnold, Nottinghamshire. It also used to be a local government ward area of Gedling Borough until 2015.[2] The population of the ward as it stood at the 2011 census was 2,595.[3] The area is currently contained within the newly created Coppice ward.

The area is mostly residential, and contains a few shops and a John Lewis depot. It borders with Mapperley, Arnold town centre and Woodthorpe. As a ward, Killisick shares borders with the wards known as: Mapperley Plains; Lambley; Woodborough; St. Mary's; Calverton; and Kingswell.

Education[edit]

The area has two secondary schools and a number of primary schools. The largest is Arnold Hill Academy, which has 1,700 pupils. Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy is very close to Arnold Hill. Killisick School is the most notable primary school[citation needed] and it feeds students to Redhill Academy in Redhill, a secondary school which is located closer than the two aforementioned secondary schools in Killisick.

Sport[edit]

Arnold Town FC used to play on King George's Field, Gedling Road, Killisick. The land for the field had been donated in 1950 by Home Brewery Company Ltd to form a permanent memorial to King George V and to provide guaranteed free public access for recreation in perpetuity. The Charity Commission held an enquiry that closed in December 2005 into restricted public access.[10] Consequently, Arnold Town F.C. no longer play on King George's Field – they are now located at Eagle Valley, Oxton Road,[11] near Calverton.

Football is also played at Killisick Recreation Ground, where there is a play area and tarmac pitch. A funfair is held on the ground every year.[12]
