It then became fully comprehensive, serving Oadby as its main catchment area as well as drawing from villages up to eight miles away.AcademyThe school converted to academy status on 1 May 2013.Community collegeBeauchamp is also a Community College, with over 2500 part-time students taking part in a variety of recreational, cultural and academic evening classes.
