Springwell Community College (formerly Springwell Community School) is a secondary school in Chesterfield, England. It is a mixed comprehensive taking pupils from Inkersall, Staveley, Brimington, Hollingwood, Barrow Hill, and other primary schools in the Staveley-Brimington area.[1] It was formed in 1991 by the amalgamation of two secondary schools, Westwood (which was located in nearby Hollingwood) and Middlecroft following a reorganisation of education in Chesterfield. Springwell achieved Specialist Status as an Arts College in September 2005.

Building and Structure[edit]

The school was formerly housed in the old Middlecroft School 1960’s building.[2] In November 2010 the school relocated to new buildings as part of the Building Schools for the Future programme. The school was renamed Springwell Community College at this time.

Aspire Sixth Form[edit]

Springwell Community College has joined a consortium with The Bolsover School, Heritage High School and Shirebrook Academy to form Aspire Sixth Form, a sixth form provision that has operated across all the school sites since September 2014..[3]
