Welcome Message

On behalf of the Trust, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to the OWLS Multi Academy Trust.  Our website and includes a range of useful and interesting information about our Trust.

OWLS (Oadby, Wigston & Leicestershire Schools) Multi Academy Trust is made up of 9 Primary Schools in the Leicestershire area, Glenmere Primary School, Langmoor Primary School, Little Hill Primary School, Fernvale Primary School, Hinckley Parks Primary School, New Lubbesthorpe Primary School, Ravenhurst Primary School, Hollycroft and Newlands Primary School. The 9 schools have formed a Multi Academy Trust (MAT) and work closely together to share expertise and resources to provide continuous high-quality provision for our children.

OWLS Multi Academy Trust is a caring community of children, parents, staff and governors, trustees and members.  Together we continually strive to provide a happy and supportive environment in which the unique potential in every child is realised. We are ambitious for our pupils and our aim is for each child to become a confident, enthusiastic and independent learner, achieving their best. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers to this aim.

We are very proud of our schools and our children. If the information you require is not shown on these pages, please contact us and we will do our best to help. 

We hope you find all of the information you are looking for and that the website will give you an insight into the life at our Trust. 


Our ethos is firmly rooted in our belief in providing the best opportunities for all of our pupils:

  • A place of happiness, excitement and wonder, full of happy, inquisitive children, who love learning and who are determined to do their best and try new things.
  • A place where we pursue high academic standards but also provide a well-balanced education, where children are given an opportunity to discover talents across the whole curriculum including technology, The Arts, PE & Sport.
  • A place where aspiration is key: every child will be encouraged and given their chance to shine regardless of ability or circumstances. Mistakes are welcomed as opportunities for new learning and understanding.  


A place where learning is for all: our parents and community are welcome as our key learning partners in enabling children and families to flourish.

The Trust schools work collaboratively, sharing practice and resources, however, our schools also pride themselves in retaining their autonomy.

Our aim is to recognise each child's individual talents. We want pupils at the OWLS Multi Academy Trust to have memorable, lifelong learning experiences. Our Trust is very special: we have learning environments to be proud of; amazing teachers and support staff; and as a result pupils are engaged, enthusiastic and proud of their schools.

The Members, Trustees, Local Governors and all other stakeholders, keeping abreast with the changing landscape of education, believe that partnership is vital to ensure stability and continuous high quality provision for our children.  

The OWLS Multi Academy Trust has a CEO (Chief Education Officer) whose purpose is to work in conjunction with the Trustees and the Headteachers to promote consistency and a secure foundation from which to achieve high standards through a shared vision across all of our schools.

The CEO (Chief Education Officer) is Mr Peter Merry             ceo@owlsacademytrust.co.uk
