St Botolph's CE Primary School
St Botolph's CE Primary School

As parents we are so pleased we chose St Botolph’s as we feel both of our children have had exemplary support and care as they have progressed through their school year.


Our school

Old school building at St Botolph's in ShepshedThis picture shows the stone building which was the original school, established 1n 1837. Our current school was built on the site behind it in 1975.

The school is controlled by the Local Education Authority who recognise the Church of England’s foundation of a school in Shepshed. The school is situated on a shared campus with Iveshead School (formerly Shepshed High School and Hind Leys College). Children start our school when they are 4 and transfer to Iveshead when they are 11. There are currently 300 children on roll and we are constantly oversubscribed with applications far outweighing our allocated pupil numbers.

In the Summer of 2009, the School had 1.3 million pounds spent on refurbishment under the Government’s Primary Capital Project. 

We moved to a new location in February 2022. To watch a short presentation of our new school please click HERE

In February 2022, the School will move in to a new flagship Primary School situated on the same campus. This amazing opportunity will give us the space and potential beyond anything we could have imagined. It will allow the school to continue to grow in line with the increasing desire to attend our school and support the additional Primary places required as a result of the significant housing development around the Shepsed area.

Our official catchment area consists of both private and rented housing, however children attending St. Botolph’s come from all of Shepshed and beyond.

The school underwent an Outstanding SIAMS inspection in March 2016 and a successful OFSTED in November 2021.
