At De Lisle College  we receive students into Year 7, Year 10 and Year 12 through the normal admission round and from time to time we admit students during the academic year should places become available. Please read this section carefully. It includes our Admissions Policy which you are advised to read in full.

De Lisle is the only secondary Catholic College in Loughborough serving the Catholic communities of the city and nearby villages and towns. Places are also available for students from other backgrounds whose parents wish them to be educated in a Catholic environment.

If you require help in making your choice of school or with the admissions process in general, your local authority can give you information about a Choice Adviser who will be able to support you. General advice about Catholic schools can also be obtained from the Nottingham Diocese Education Service (01332 293833)

Should you wish to speak to someone at the school prior to making an application, please telephone Mrs Hamilton at the school or e-mail
