We are delighted to welcome Keyham Lodge and Millgate Schools to the Discovery Trust.
Based in the city of Leicester, both schools relentlessly strive to remove barriers to learning, close attainment gaps and provide an inclusive environment that is child centred and learning focussed.
We look forward to our partnership with these two schools and are excited about what we can accomplish through collaborative learning.
Keyham Lodge School
Keyham Lodge School is a vibrant and successful City Special School which is part of a federation with neighbouring Millgate School.
All students have an education health care plan and the school cohort is made up of KS3 and KS4 and caters for both girls and boys from KS3 upwards.
We are a diverse school and we welcome students from a range of ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds, which contributes to our unique values and ethos.
For the majority of our students, their education prior to joining us has been disrupted and because of this, the school relentlessly strives to remove barriers to learning, close attainment gaps and provide an inclusive environment that is child centred and learning focussed.
Our aim is to ensure the academic, personal and social development of all of our students so that they can develop their potential, both in school and in the wider community. We understand that our students have individual talents and in order to ensure success for every child, we believe that education goes beyond the core curriculum and out of the confines of the classroom and consequently, we have adapted our curriculum offer to ensure students are prepared for the next stage of their life, whether that be within education or in the workplace.
Millgate School is an amazing place that is ‘Transforming Lives and Inspiring Futures’ everyday. As a staff and student body, we work tirelessly to ensure excellent learning experiences for all and our mission to secure exceptional outcomes, in a range of forms, is uncompromising.
We are a special school in every sense of the word and passionately believe in our ambition to transform lives and inspire futures.
Our aim is for everybody who comes into contact with our school to leave richer for the experience. We are a dedicated community of staff and pupils who in partnership with our federated school Keyham Lodge, have been on an upward trajectory over the last 5 years.
At Millgate School relationships are key; we take pride in getting to know our pupils and their families and in ensuring they receive the best possible level of care and support on their journey though our school.
