 ​Welcome to Wilsthorpe Community School


Wilsthorpe is a community school with an 11 to 18 intake.  Maintained by Derbyshire Local Authority, Wilsthorpe is situated on the outskirts of the town of Long Eaton and has an intake that covers the full ability range from potential ‘Oxbridge’ candidates to students with learning difficulties.

We have an excellent and growing reputation in the local area, thanks to a rapid rise in achievement and attainment over the last 5 years.  For two years running (2010 and 2011), Wilsthorpe achieved the highest percentage of students getting five or more higher grade GCSEs, in Derbyshire.  We were named in the BBC’s ‘top 100 most improved schools in England’ list in 2009, 2010 and 2011 as well as being named  one of the top 10% of schools for “outstanding continuous improvement” by the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust in 2012.  In 2013, we broke previous records achieving our best results ever.
