Welcome to English Martyrs, Oakham
Welcome to the English Martyrs Catholic Voluntary Academy website. We are a small Voluntary Aided Catholic Academy with 136 children aged between 4 - 11 yrs old on roll. We are part of the St Thérèse of Lisieux Catholic Multi Academy Trust together with 13 other primary schools and two secondary schools across Lincolnshire. 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.”
Our uniform provider Deco Schoolwear have generously sponsored 15 new tracksuits for children to use at sporting events. We're thrilled with them and the children are very excited to start using them. We are very grateful to Sam and Ben at Deco Schoolwear/Rutland Merchandise Ltd for sponsoring us.
