Welcome to the English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy website. We are a small Voluntary Aided Catholic Academy with 164 children aged between 4 – 11 years old. We are part of the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi Academy Trust together with 16 other primary schools and 4 secondary schools across Leicestershire and Rutland.
We are happy to welcome children of any faith or none to join us in our friendly school.
Our school is in close proximity to military bases, and we welcome families with parents serving in the armed forces, considering carefully how we support children accessing service premium. More information about where service families can receive support can be found in our Parents tab under Parent Info.
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.
“We grow and learn with the gifts we have been given, following in the footsteps of Jesus.”
