Welcome to our School


“Whitwick St John the Baptist is a warm, welcoming school where pupils and adults feel valued and cared for within a family atmosphere of care and compassion.” This is the opening statement of our SIAS inspection report and is a true reflection of our community. The report goes on to say;

 “Excellent relationships exist between staff and pupils based on distinctively Christian values.  Children’s behaviour and attitudes are excellent as a result of the school’s Christian character and high level of care shown throughout school.”

We work hard to help our children achieve well academically, as well as helping them to develop as individuals, by providing additional opportunities to take part in sports and creative arts. By working closely with local schools –The Collaborative Partnership, The Coalville Family of Schools and Forest Way Teaching School Alliance we are able to offer both participation and competition.

Our school is a happy place for children to learn. From our Penguin Pre – School through to Year 6 we believe in offering an interesting and exciting curriculum which allows children to develop their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. We are proud of the positive comments we receive from visitors who say what a friendly place it is. Our children regularly receive praise about their behaviour from visitors and when out of school.

Please spend a few minutes having a look at our website to see what we can offer your child. If you have any questions please contact the school and we will be happy to help.
