Welcome to English Martyrs, Oakham
Welcome to the English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy website. We are a small Voluntary Aided Catholic Academy with 129 children aged between 4 - 11 yrs old on roll. We are federated with St Augustine's Catholic Voluntary Academy in Stamford and part of the St Gilbert of Sempringham Catholic Academy Trust together with our federated school St Augustine's, Stamford as well as Our Lady of Good Counsel, Sleaford, Our Lady of Lincoln, St Hughes and St Peter & St Paul, Lincoln. We are happy to welcome children of any faith or none to join us in our friendly school.
We are very proud of our school and we enjoy being part of an active and friendly community. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum setting high expectations and encouraging all our children to achieve their potential before leaving us in year 6. Our mission statement below explains how we want our children to lead their lives, and our school values of excellence, determination, respect, equality, friendship, courage and inspiration help them to achieve this.
We would welcome you visiting us before you decide to join us to ensure that you are making the best decision for your child. For the latest news please see the tab marked 'news' and also take a look at the weekly school newsletter.
“ We grow and learn as a family in the footsteps of Jesus.”

Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its Bags of Help initiative across England and Wales and the scheme sees three community groups and projects in each of around 200 Tesco regions awarded grants of £5,000, £2,000 and £1,000 all raised from the 5p bag charge. Let's go for the £5,000!! Thank you
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded £10,000 by the Big Lottery Fund for the development of an all Weather Surface Pitch within our school grounds. Further fundraising is required but this is a fantastic start to our project financially!
We have set up a Crowdfunding page to help us reach our fundraising target to complete our project. Please click here to visit the page and donate if you can. Thank you!
