Our School

As the name suggests 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 Shepshed High School and Hind Leys College. Children start our school when they are 4 and transfer to the High School when they are 10. There are currently 234 children on roll.


In the Summer of 2009, the School had 1.3 million pounds spent on refurbishment under the Government’s Primary Capital Project. We are now lucky to have a very vibrant learning environment.

The teaching staff comprises of the Headteacher and 11 teachers (including the Assistant Head). The school employs a Higher Level Teaching Assistant, one Nursery Nurse and 9 Teaching Assistants/ Learning Support Assistants.

The 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 a successful OFSTED inspection in March 2011. St. Botolph’s has a happy atmosphere with everyone working together as a family.
