De Lisle Catholic Science College

De Lisle College (formerly De Lisle Roman Catholic Comprehensive School, then De Lisle Catholic Science College and sometimes called De Lisle School) is a co-educational secondary school with academy status in Loughborough, Leicestershire, England. At the time of its 2000 Ofsted inspection it had 1,223 pupils including 160 in the sixth form. It was designated as a science specialist school in 2003. In 2007, the LEA announced that it would charge all of those who travel to De Lisle on school buses as it was judged that Catholic children should not be entitled to free travel outwith the catchment area of their locals schools, at great taxpayers expense, for the purpose of attending a specialised faith school. Until 2012, the Roman Catholic Church subsidised the rising fees of school transport but had to withdraw in 2012 due to cuts. It draws the majority of its pupils from seven local Catholic primary schools, including Bishop Ellis, Sacred Heart, St Mary's, St Winefride's, St. Clare's, St Francis and Holy Cross.

Famous quotes containing the words college, science and/or catholic:

    ... when you make it a moral necessity for the young to dabble in all the subjects that the books on the top shelf are written about, you kill two very large birds with one stone: you satisfy precious curiosities, and you make them believe that they know as much about life as people who really know something. If college boys are solemnly advised to listen to lectures on prostitution, they will listen; and who is to blame if some time, in a less moral moment, they profit by their information?
    Katharine Fullerton Gerould (1879–1944)

    There is more religion in men’s science than there is science in their religion.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Lord, have mercy on us.
    [Kyrie, eleison.]
