De Lisle College is a thriving and successful 11-18 Catholic Voluntary Academy with a clear vision for success in developing the young adults of tomorrow. We aim to provide the very best all-round education for Catholic students and those willing to support our ethos. It is a happy college with a family atmosphere, where all are expected to treat each other with mutual respect. Our Gospel values are at the heart of the education we offer. 

We pride ourselves on offering an education focussed on developing spirituality and relationships, as well as the gifts and talents of every student entrusted to our care.

We seek to create a caring, supportive and stimulating learning environment with a positive culture, encouraging all students to try their best, a place where many and varied student successes are celebrated.

One of our key assets is the quality of our dedicated and hardworking staff. We have a tradition of excellent academic performance both at GCSE and A Level, coupled with strong pastoral care focussed on nurturing each child.

I hope you will enjoy exploring the website and you are warmly encouraged to visit us and gain your own first-hand impressions of the college, our facilities and atmosphere. I look forward to meeting you.

Mr J Lissaman
Acting Head Teacher
