After being in this school for only one year, I am so pleased with the progress that both of my children are making. Class teachers are fantastic and always approachable no matter how busy they are, and I must say Mrs Pepper is FANTASTIC! I love attending the assemblies and school activities because of how enthusiastic she and all the teachers are! Keep up the good work.
This 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.
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.
