In 2004 the College was designated as a specialist Maths and Computing College, which led to significant investment in ICT resources across the college. It is the only maths and computing specialist college in Leicester. and was helped to achieve this with the support of our business sponsors, the Alliance and Leicester. A large part of our Specialist College Plan is concerned with links with the community, vital to the ethos of Soar Valley with developments centered on family learning projects and primary liaison. It also has a wide range of activities on site in the evenings and at weekends that benefit the wider community.
