Welcome to English Martyrs Catholic Primary School's new website, which is in the process of being built, but already contains the latest news, pictures and information about our wonderful school in Oakham, Rutland.
We are a small Voluntary Aided Primary School with 100 children aged between 4 - 11 yrs old on roll and are federated with St Augustine's Catholic Primary School in Stamford.

Important information regarding conversion to academy status
The Governing Body met last Monday to make the final decision on the school converting to an academy. We are delighted to inform you that the decision was made to convert and all of the documents were agreed and signed. Therefore the school will convert to become an academy on 1st May. The school will be known as English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy and we will be part of St Gilbert of Sempringham Catholic Academy Trust. The other schools in the Trust are St Augustine’s in Stamford, English Martyrs in Oakham, Rutland, Our Lady of Lincoln, Our Lady of Good Counsel, St Hugh’s and St Peter and St Paul, all in Lincoln.
This is the start of an exciting development for our school and will enable us to work more closely with the other local Catholic schools to enhance the education of all of the children. We have already met as teaching staff to moderate RE assessments and other opportunities will be arranged for staff to work and train together. There will also be events for the children to work together on a variety of activities.
We will continue our close relationship with our local schools and remain a part of the thriving local education community.
