Thomas Estley Community College

Extended Services

At Thomas Estley we believe that a community college should be embedded into the community and welcome all ages and abilities.

Our Extended Services provision includes:

Our preschool, rated Ofsted Outstanding, with sessions every day for preschool children from 2+.

Our before and after school club childcare setting, for primary aged children mainly from Old Mill Primary School.

Our stay and play session on Wednesday mornings for preschool aged children accompanied by their parent/ carer.

Our bi-weekly Luncheon Clubs and monthly Tea Dance for older members of the community.

Our strong working partnership with Broughton Astley Sea Cadets for young people and youth aged 10-16, based at our college.

Teacher training (primary and secondary) as well as a range of training courses for teaching and support staff across Leicestershire schools.

Targeted breakfast clubs for our secondary aged learners.

Close links with our Broughton Astley Children’s Centre, based on site.

Signposting to external and support agencies for children and other community members.

We also host a range of affiliated groups in the college premises, both daytime and evening.

These typically include:
