Welcome to English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy. Our school family of dedicated and friendly staff support your child to achieve their very best. We see each child as a whole person and nurture their academic, spiritual, social and physical wellbeing. We aim to be a positive, safe and happy learning community in which children see the importance and impact of their learning.

At English Martyrs, we acknowledge that our children need a child-centred holistic approach to learning rooted in faith. Our mission statement which includes the word gifts which reminds us all that our children are gifts from God, and how important our job as educators is to ensure that we provide an education for our children which enables them to be the best they can be. We have adopted 10 school virtues based on learning habits and our Gospel values: – faith, love, kindness, respect, confidence, resilience, love of learning, forgiveness, courage and patience.

During their time at English Martyrs we want all our children to grow their virtues making them ready for their next steps beyond year 6.
