De Lisle College - Joe's School

De Lisle College is a Catholic Voluntary Academy in the heart of Loughborough. Recently judged 'Outstanding' by the Diocesan Inspection team and 'Good' by OFSTED in Dec 2013; we aim to provide the very best all-round education for Catholic students and those willing to support our ethos. It is a happy college with a family atmosphere, where all are expected to treat each other with mutual respect. Our Gospel values are at the heart of the education we offer. One of our key assets is the quality of our dedicated, hardworking staff; all of whom have high expectations of every child.

Joe was a pupil at De Lisle College in Loughborough when he died and since his death, the school has gone above and beyond to raise awareness of SADS and to continue Joe's legacy.

Joe Humphries was an integral member of our family and a well-loved student within the year group. He had a firm group of friends who have dedicated their time to Joe's memory and the JHMT since he passed. As a school we have recognised this achievement by nominating these students for the 'Commitment to the wider community award' which they will be presented with at our own Prize Giving in Loughborough Town Hall. Joe was a hardworking and dedicated student who was not only academically able but exceptionally creative. Due to Joe's passion for photography De Lisle has set up our own annual competition that is open to all students with the aim to inspire the next generation of students with a creative flare. Last year the work produced was phenomenal with over 100 entries. There are not enough positive words that can be used to describe Joe, he was an amazing student whose memory still lives on in the hearts of all those at De Lisle who knew and cared for him.
