Rothley Church of England Primary (Academy)

"Working together to achieve value and recognise the strengths of all"

History of Rothley School 

Rothley Church of England School (Academy) is to be found in the new development as you enter the village of Rothley, Leicestershire. The school is a mixed primary with approximately 400+ children based in 14 classes and a nursery. The school is a year old and plays  an important role in village life today and in the future.

The school is lucky to have a large play area and sports field, which will offer the children ample opportunity for sport, play and recreation. The play area is well marked out with games to occupy all. The new school grounds will give children ample opportunity to explore their environment and use their imagination.  The new site will afford even greater opportunity for the pupils and the community of Rothley. 

The staff at Rothley are friendly and supportive and enjoy the close links they have with the local church and community. They are fully committed to:-

  • Continuing  their professional development
  • Teaching and learning and understanding how learning develops
  • Developing the new curriculum (2014)
  • Preparing our pupils for their future

How we will achieve this:

  • Through delivering a first class education
  •  By having a clear strategic plan
  •  With sound budget planning
  •  By developing well motivated and happy learners
  •  With  high quality teaching
  •  By ensuring everyone reaches their potential

 The Future for Rothley School  (The next 100 years)

The school staff and governors are busy planning for the next phase of education for the children of Rothley.

The school is now a two form entry school allowing for the inevitable influx of new families into the area.  The modern building will allow us and future educators to continue to deliver a first class education for the local children, a tradition stretching back to the 19th century in Rothley.

School Opening and Dedication

The school was opened by The Secretary of State for Education The RT. Hon. Nicky Morgan on the 20th March 2015 and blessed by the Bishop of Leicester The Right Reverend Tim Stevens on the 21st of May 2015.
