Why choose Horspath Church of England Primary School?
Horspath is a primary school for children aged four to eleven. It is part of the River Learning Trust. As a Church school, it is also supported by the Oxford Diocese Board of Education. The Church of England’s vision is for the common good of the whole community.
The school is located in Horspath, an attractive village just east of Oxford which climbs the slope of Shotover Hill. About half our pupils live in Horspath itself whilst the others travel from the surrounding area.
We are fortunate in having lovely grounds, including a generously-sized wildlife area, and aim to make the most of our location to support the curriculum. St Giles’ Church is but a short walk away as is Shotover Country Park. We also benefit from partnerships with local sports clubs.
The size of the school helps to create a family ethos, with our empathetic and experienced staff quickly getting to know each of the children. We seek to work closely with families in their children’s best interests.
Whilst we strive to provide the best educational opportunities and outcomes for all pupils, we also encourage and celebrate their wider achievements and interests. Do watch our short video to glimpse how the children let their light shine.
