Martinshaw Primary School Careers Site Eteach (17478)


Martinshaw has long enjoyed a reputation as a school providing a thorough grounding in all the important aspects of education.

There is an emphasis on ensuring that children learn those basic skills of literacy and numeracy which they will require in all other subjects.

Underlining this philosophy is an understanding of the need for all children to feel cared for and secure both physically and psychologically.

We care very deeply about children, about education, and about setting ourselves the highest possible standards in all aspects of our work

About Us

Martinshaw is a Primary School for boys and girls from the ages of 4 to 11.

Our school is attractive and friendly and is set in spacious grounds. The school combines the advantages of separate classrooms with the flexibility of shared working areas. The school provides a family atmosphere which is conducive to learning, building a firm foundation for further education and developing the skills required to make children secure and worthy members of society.

We believe that your child must be at the centre of all we seek to achieve at Martinshaw. We are concerned with the all round development of the children in our care. We help them to have a lively interest in the world in which they live to acquire knowledge and develop new skills.

We recognise that children develop at different rates, possess a variety of skills and abilities, have different needs and display a range of personalities and interests.

We are committed to developing the full potential of every child and we value the contributions and achievements of all children. We believe that we must work in close partnership with parents in order to achieve this.

We encourage children to take maximum advantage of the opportunities available to them as they continue through their formal education to become active participants in a fastchanging world.

Governors, parents, staff and children are justifiably proud of our school and of the standards that are achieved. We would like to warmly invite you to come to our school to see the working environment for yourself. Please telephone 0116 2876749 to make arrangements.  

Living and Working in Leicestershire

In the Heart of England - Residents of Leicestershire enjoy the best of everything
From refreshing and beautiful countryside and personable market towns to vibrant city living, Leicestershire offers a distinctive and high quality of life that will suit all lifestyles
Leicestershire is a beautiful county at the heart of England, within the developing National Forest.  It is a county where you can discover completely unspoilt villages and market towns, open countryside and panoramic views with rocky summits and secluded valleys.
Leicestershire has a wide variety of attractions including Bosworth Battlefield, where the course of English history changed dramatically, Snibston Discovery Park, which recalls our industrial past, and the National Space Centre.
Loughborough, in the north of the County is at the forefront of Information Technology and Loughborough University is also the national headquarters for many sports in the UK.  A number of Olympic teams will be training at Loughborough University in preparation for the 2012 Games in London, including, among others, the British Swimming Team, the British Triathlon Team, the elite British Athletes and the English Women’s Football Team.
The jet engine was invented in Lutterworth, in the south of the County, while Hinckley in the west was where the hosiery and footwear industries evolved.  Ashby-de-la-Zouch, in the north-west, and Market Harborough, in the south-east, are two very attractive, historical market towns.  Melton Mowbray, in the north-east, is a rural market town famous for the pork pie and for Stilton cheese.
Cosmopolitan and cultured, historic but futuristic, Leicester in the centre of the County is nothing if not varied, with its strong cultural diversity, excellent entertainment, night-life and restaurants.  The newly re-developed centre of the City offers a wide range of shopping opportunities, from the largest permanent outdoor market in Europe to the extensive Highcross shopping centre.
Leicestershire is well served by many transportation networks.  Four motorways (M1, M69, M42 and M6) run through the County, and there are regular trains to London, Nottingham, Birmingham and the North.  For international travel East Midlands Airport is located in the north of the County, and Birmingham Airport is also easily accessible
