cropped-Barleythorpe-logo-chosen.jpgWe know that many new residents in Oakham and the surrounding area have struggled to find a local primary school place.  We are planning to address this by applying to open a new feeder school to Catmose College with a planned opening in September 2017. It will be sited in order to allow primary aged children living in the new Oakham developments and the surrounding area to attend a local school before transitioning to Catmose College. We will need your support in order to make this happen, with a consultation beginning next week to gauge demand. If you know anyone who has a primary aged child who might be interested, please invite them to like our Facebook page:
