|Year of foundation:
||Hockerill enjoys a rich and varied heritage. Originally established in the early 1850s, it was a teacher training college until 1978.
It re-opened in 1980 as a co-educational boarding school until 1994 when it became grant maintained Hockerill Anglo-European School. 1998 proved to be a defining year, as the school underwent a dramatic transformation into Hockerill Anglo-European College. In the process it:-
became one of the country’s first specialist language colleges;
offered a sixth form provision for the first time;
chose the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme as the only course of sixth form study.
Progress and innovation
Since then the College has doubled in size, with over 700 students around a third of whom are boarders from Europe and beyond. There are over 50 cosmopolitan, carefully selected, teachers – most at least bilingual - and double that number including support staff. We pioneered language school-university partnerships when we joined the University of Nottingham in training future language teachers.
Equally significantly our close working and cultural links with a network of partner schools throughout Europe offers all our students the opportunity for regular visits and prolonged study abroad.
Hockerill Anglo-European College were pleased to gain Academy status in Febuary 2011.

About the school
Long description: IB
We are the only maintained boarding establishment where sixth formers only study the IB Diploma.
This is primarily because we believe it provides a broader & more coherent alternative to the A-Level curriculum more commonly available in the UK and that it is a better preparation for university. It also provides a highly marketable qualification within the increasingly international workplace of the future.
Hockerill students consistently achieve the highest standards in IB Diplomas. Our sixth-formers regularly move on to study at premier universities in the UK and worldwide.
Candidates chose six subjects - three at Higher Level and three at Standard Level. Individual choices depend on whether the student is a science specialist, language specialist or 'all rounder'. Additionally, all follow a Theory of Knowledge course, participate in a Creativity, Action and Service (CAS) programme, and complete a mini dissertation based on their own research.
All students study two foreign languages to GCSE level and at least one within the IB course of study. Bilingual sections are an option and include French/English and German/English. In these History and Geography are taught in French and German.
