It’s a vibrant, hands-on, busy and fun place to learn and thrive!
We are a Church of England Infant School set in the centre of Witney. Adjacent to St. Mary’s Church and overlooking the green, we are proud of our heritage whilst always building towards the future.
At St. Mary’s, the Christian value of love is at the heart of all we do. We seek to grow our children in a nurturing and secure environment and work closely together with our parents, the Church, governors and the community to achieve this. Our specialist and dedicated team of staff are passionate about Early Years Education and our facilities are designed specifically to meet the needs of children aged 4-7 years, including our purpose built Reception suite.
We pride ourselves that the children at St. Mary’s are happy, challenged and excited about each day, every day. Whether it be investigating an alien crash landing, May Day dancing or trying to find the answer to the question ‘why does popping candy go pop?’ our children are encouraged to achieve their potential, develop their talents and celebrate their uniqueness.
I feel extremely privileged to be Headteacher of St. Mary’s and invite you to come and visit our school to see it in action. You’ll be sure of a warm welcome.
Wednesday 12 December saw St. Mary’s stage two performances of the Hoity-Toity Angel in St Mary the Virgin Church. The church was packed with families and friends joining us to celebrate our Nativity. The performance was wonderful!
There is a vibrant, interesting and engaging curriculum. This is a strength of the school and reflects the determination that pupils will encounter first-hand experiences while maintaining a strong focus on their basic skills.
