Welcome to Bramcote College

Bramcote College is an 11-18 academy situated in the village of Bramcote, Nottinghamshire, alongside Green Flag awarded parkland and just off the main road connecting the cities of Nottingham and Derby.  There have been schools on our estate since 1948, under different names throughout the years, allowing thousands of local children to begin their journey with us.  

We admit children into Years 7-11 from primary schools within our catchment area, and more details of how to apply for a place with us can be found on our admissions page.

Bramcote College Sixth Form, our post-16 provision, offers a range of vocational and A-Level subjects.  More information, including contact and application details can be found on the sixth form's dedicated website.

Ofsted Good GP ColourOur vision and values are based strongly around our school motto Work Hard. Be Well. Do Well. and as Ofsted noted during our most recent inspection, "Only the best is good enough".

Thank you for showing an interest in Bramcote College.

We want the best for all our students and have the highest expectations. Although we recognise how important academic performance is, Bramcote College is about much more than exam success. We develop our young people and place high value on enrichment and on providing learning opportunities that inspire our students both in and outside the classroom. We recognise that every moment in school is a learning moment and that this contributes to the sense of belonging we foster.

We work closely as a staff body and together with students, parents and governors, we ensure that our students make good progress.  Our latest Ofsted report states that ‘Leaders are determined that only the best is good enough for pupils at the school. They have introduced an aspirational culture, which pupils and staff have embraced.'

Our strong pastoral care system, rooted in our INSPIRE values, means that we know our students well and recognise how to bring out the best in them.

We are proud of the school we are and excited about the school we are becoming. We are happy to receive visits during a normal school day where you can observe student learning and talk to students and staff about life at Bramcote College. Please call us to arrange an appointment.
