Welcome to English Martyrs, Oakham

Welcome to the English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy website. We are a small Voluntary Aided Catholic Academy with 137 children aged between 4 - 11 yrs old on roll. We are part of the St Gilbert of Sempringham Catholic Academy Trust together with St Augustine's, Stamford, 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.”

****NEWS FLASH****

Our long-awaited Astroturf is finished! The majority of the funding has come from the enormous efforts of parents, staff and governors at the school and Mrs Chambers would personally like to thank them all for their incredible hard work. Thank you also to Playscapes Playgrounds for such an excellent job in providing the pitch. 

Please contact the school if you are interested in hiring this facility for extra curricular sport or birthday parties.
