[Historical note: Recently-founded private school renewing the educational patronage of the Dixie family in Market Bosworth, accommodated in the old buildings of the original Bosworth Grammar School.  This had become a county school in the 1880s, maintained by the Leicestershire Education Authority, but during the early 1970s it transferred to a new site at Desford, where it became Bosworth Upper School and Community College, Desford.  The old grammar school buildings in Market Bosworth were used afterwards by Market Bosworth High School.  They were later bought for the new private school.]
