Description De Lisle College is a co-educational secondary school with academy status in Loughborough, Leicestershire, England. According to the Ofsted website it has 1,274 pupils. It was designated as a science specialist school in 2003. In 2007, the LEA announced that it would charge all of those who travel to De Lisle on school buses as it was judged that Catholic children should not be entitled to free travel outwith the catchment area of their locals schools, at taxpayers expense, for the purpose of attending a specialised faith school. Until 2012, the Roman Catholic Church subsidised the rising fees of school transport but had to withdraw in 2012 due to cuts. It draws the majority of its pupils from seven local Catholic primary schools, including Bishop Ellis, Sacred Heart, St Mary's, St Winefride's, St. Clare's, St Francis and Holy Cross Academy.School traditions and other informationThe School logo is a Stag, as reference to the deer which once roamed the land the school is built on, before it was given to the County by local landowner Ambrose Lisle March Phillipps De Lisle, from whom the school also takes its name.The School Latin motto, "Quod justum, non quod utile" is often translated as "do what is right, not what is easy" but literally translates to "what is fair, not what is useful."The School has seven houses, all of which are named after individuals who have had a profound religious effect. The houses are Nelson Mandela (black), Oscar Romero (red), Anne Frank (orange), Basil Hume (pink), St. Bernadette (yellow), Mother Teresa (blue), and Martin Luther King (green)
