Welcome to Christ the King Catholic Voluntary Academy

Welcome to our school website.  We hope you find it informative and helpful and that it gives you an insight into our school.

Christ the King is an Outstanding Catholic Primary School built on Gospel values. We put Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Church at the centre of everything we do and aspire for excellence for every child.

Every child is valued as a unique individual made in the image and likeness of God. We provide creative, enriching experiences that enable children to develop a lifelong love of learning, a sense of personal responsibility and the skills and aspirations to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Our school motto is Believe and Achieve! Our team want every child to meet their full academic potential but we also believe that Christ the King is a community of faith where our children encounter Christ and begin to form a personal relationship with God through the celebration of Mass, liturgy and prayer. We want our children to achieve academically, spiritually and morally.

We recognise and value the role of parents as the first teachers of their children and strive to develop a partnership between home and school.

Christ the King is currently assessed as Outstanding by OFSTED in all areas and as Outstanding by the Diocese of Nottingham for the provision of RE and collective worship.

Christ the King serves the families living and worshipping in the parishes of Blessed Sacrament, Mother of God and St Peter’s in Leicester. We have an excellent relationship with our parishes and our children will expect to visit our churches and see our priests on a regular basis.

We are part of the St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Multi-Academy Trust, which is a network of twenty-three Catholic schools across Leicestershire. More information can be found at https://www.aquinas-cmat.org/

You are very welcome to visit Christ the King if you are considering an application for your child.
