This website can only give you a glimpse of what the school is really like, what its priorities are and, importantly, of how it might feel to be a pupil here. I very much hope you will find the time to come and visit us, and experience it for yourself.
Choosing a school is one of the most significant things that we do for our children – I know that from my own family experience. Here at Grace Dieu Manor School we understand that your child’s early years are special and that choosing the right school at that stage can help create a firm foundation for the rest of their lives.
Grace Dieu Manor is set in 120 acres of beautiful rolling countryside in Northwest Leicestershire. There is no doubting the distinctive nature of Grace Dieu – the school provides an environment where young people flourish through individual care and encouragement, so that they can progress to their senior school, cheerfully self-confident, and ready to contribute fully and generously wherever they may find themselves in the future.
Thank you for visiting our website which I hope will answer many of your questions and I hope I shall have the pleasure of meeting you soon.
New Headmaster Appointed
Peter Fisher will become the new Headmaster in September, following the retirement of Charles Foulds. In response to his appointment, Mr Fisher made the following statement: ‘It is both an honour and a privilege to have been appointed as the new Headmaster of Grace Dieu. All that I had previously known about the school has been surpassed; the pupils are a delight and the staff are very welcoming. This, of course, is testament to the commitment and dedicated service that Charles has given the school and the precious and distinctive ethos that sets Grace Dieu apart. It is a very special place. Both Rachel and I, together with our two boys, Josiah and Tobias, are excited about the future. My vision is to build upon the legacy of outstanding achievement, ensure that faith and tradition continue to shape and guide the educational provision offered and be receptive and responsive to the needs of the modern age. I look forward to meeting current and prospective parents very soon.”
