Our Community

English Martyrs’ Catholic School is a very rich community. We are drawn from a wide area of Leicester and we come from many different backgrounds and a number of parishes. We are first and foremost a prayerful community, strengthened by God’s word and enlivened by God’s grace. Mass is the most important aspect, the “source and summit” of our community life.

In our community we know that everyone is created in the image of God and we seek to ensure that everyone is able to make the most of their unique talents. We know it is our duty to help one another to grow in maturity and to learn together to the best of our ability. In our community we seek to follow Jesus’ instruction “Love one another as I have loved you, so you must love one another” (Jn.13). We put other peoples’ needs before our own. We work for justice and peace in the world. Our motto “May they all be one ... so that the world may believe” reminds us that in our day we should be martyrs (which means witnesses) to Jesus’ love in action. As St Teresa puts it: “Christ has no body now but yours”.
