School Information


Sherard is  co-educational day school for primary children aged 2-11 years.

The school is made up of:

  • Mainstream school with over 300 pupils
  • Specialist Provision Setting ' The Seahorses' for children with a range of moderate learning difficulties.
  • Sherard Pre-School.

At Sherard we have  an inclusive vision for education in which we want all children to succeed. In addition to the children in our specialist provision setting we also have greater numbers of children with SEND needs in our mainstream classes. Children of all abilities work and play together at Sherard and we feel that children leave us ready for the next stage of their academic journey and also as well rounded young people.  

Over the last 2 years our numbers have steadily increased and  many children travel to the school from Melton Mowbray and the surrounding areas. The school is still very much a family school and we would encourage all to visit Sherard and see what makes it unique. On October the 1st 2017 the school joined the Mowbray Education.

The School building

The school buildings are light, spacious and well maintained.
Each class group has its own classroom, with shared cloakroom facilities and access to shared open areas and resource bases.

Educational facilities are extensive, including two large halls, a central library area, a separate performance studio for dance, drama and music and computer areas for Information and Communications Technology. The school is well equipped to provide access to a range of computing facilities for children of all ages.

Sports activities are well catered for with extensive playing fields and hard play areas. Swimming instruction is based at the local Waterfield Baths.

The school has well equipped play areas and a shaded nature garden.  The school grounds also provide a rich focus for environmental activities. The children also use the town and its facilities for local study work. In addition visits are arranged to local places of interest, museums, study centres and exhibitions.
