Cottesmore Academy

Think, believe, dream, dare…


Welcome to Cottesmore Academy

Part of the Rutland Learning Trust


Think, believe, dream, dare…we are heroes of our own adventures!


Cottesmore Academy is a Primary School that is committed to high quality learning and teaching and meeting the needs of all the children in its care. We plan to always be ‘EPIC’ as we strive to ensure everything we do is enjoyable, focussed on progress, inclusive and creative. We believe that becoming EPIallows us to achieve our motto - Think, believe, dream, dare…we are heroes of our own adventures.


Cottesmore Academy is incredibly proud of our children, families and staff, and is determined to provide a purposeful, calm and positive atmosphere. We desire for our children and families to have high aspirations and to feel safe and welcome whilst part of our community. The school is quite unique within Rutland as not only is it situated on Kendrew Barracks but it serves a marvellous diverse community with 100% of the children coming from Service families. Our children come from a range of cultural backgrounds including British, Fijian, Nepalese, African and Indian. This unique range of backgrounds enables the school to share and celebrate with the local community and enrich our curriculum at every opportunity.


Children at our school are warmly received and encouraged throughout their time with us to demonstrate our 6Rs – readiness for learning, resilience, respect, responsibility, resourcefulness and reflectiveness. These core values, alongside the British values, are golden threads that run through everything we do; in order for all our children to reach their potential and to truly be heroes of their own adventures.


We believe that for this to be fully achieved we must establish a genuine partnership between home and school. We work hard to engage with our families and encourage you to get involved in the work and life of our school whenever and wherever you can.

We know we make a difference and hope you will enjoy the journey to become EPIC.


Think, believe, dream, dare…we are heroes of our own adventures!
