Established in 1846 to ‘serve the children of the Parish of Wigston Magna’, we continue to thrive as a mixed primary school catering for children 4+ to 10 years old. (Foundation Stage to Year 5).
All Saints Church of England Primary School is situated in the historic town of Wigston Magna and is approximately 5 miles from the centre of Leicester.
The history of the school can be traced back to 1881 when it occupied the Victorian building that is now the County Record Office. Its present modern building was begun in 1976 and since then it has been remodelled and extended to accommodate the changing educational needs of the area.
These changes have created a spacious, up to date, well-resourced primary school which, together with All Saints Pre-School, provide an excellent .educational and recreational facility for both young and old alike in the centre of Wigston.
Children are admitted full-time to All Saints at the beginning of the next school year following their fourth birthday. They stay at All Saints until they transfer to High School at the beginning of the school year following their tenth birthday. Most move on to Abington Academy. At the age of fourteen plus the children then transfer to Guthlaxton College. Excellent liaison exists between the schools to ensure smooth transition for the children through each phase of their education.
We have around 193 children on roll at this present time. From next year we will go up to about 225 pupils.
The school enjoys strong links with All Saints Church and has a distinctive Christian foundation. Within our school we aim to create a friendly, happy and caring atmosphere where Christian values underpin the ethos of the whole establishment and its curriculum provision.
We endeavour to provide an education of the highest quality so that our children may realise their full potential. Priority is given to the fostering of good home - school relationships and thus we have an ‘open door’ policy where parents are always welcome.
