Sacred Heart Catholic Voluntary Academy

Sacred Heart is a 3-11 primary Catholic Academy within the Diocese of Nottingham and the City of Leicester and is part of the St, Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi Academy Trust along with other Leicester City and Leicestershire schools.

The school was formed to educate the catholic children living in the Parish of Sacred Heart in Leicester. The date 1884 is engraved on one of the original buildings of the school. We still have very strong links with Parish clergy and other parishioners.

Our school mission statement was originally written by staff, Governors and the Parish and was recently revised by the Chaplain, Chaplaincy group and RE team. It is, as follows: “We believe that God’s spirit is at work in everyone in our community. We will provide an environment of hope, joy and fulfilment in which the skills to fulfil God’s desires for us, as unique individuals, are cultivated.”

St Paul’s Catholic School

St Paul’s Catholic School is a vibrant 11-18 comprehensive and multi-cultural school. The school is part of the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust. The school was formed by the amalgamation of Evington Hall Convent School and Corpus Christi RC Secondary Modern School in 1977, and has been located in Evington since 1985.

St Paul’s School is a Catholic family, a living, breathing reflection of the love of our God and neighbour. We celebrate our diversity, seeking from each other mutual respect and high expectations. Our mission and vision is to strive to fulfil our potential as disciples who grow in holiness, knowledge and dignity. We are motivated and driven to supporting the development of our young people, building their confidence, leading their learning and guiding their moral and social duty, leading them to become active citizens in the 21st century.

Each year we welcome into our school 180 Year 7 students which includes a number of children from other Christian denominations and world faiths whose parents choose a Catholic education.  Every child is valuable and an equal member of our community.

Partnership is at the heart of what we do.  We value the links we have with our parish communities and our feeder primary schools.  We believe our St Paul’s parents are the first educators of the young people and value the relationships we have them. We encourage parents playing an active part in the education of their children through attendance at  regular parents’ evenings and celebration assemblies, shared liturgies and through the many opportunities there are to share in the life of the school.
