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.
This week Mrs Grier was accompanied by four children to The Corn Exchange to see the mosaics created by Witney Schools to commemorate the end of World War 1. The exhibition was stunning. A generation of children have created something very special to acknowledge the centenary.
On Sunday 11 November our school participated in the Witney remembrance parade as we recognised the sacrifices made, not just by the Armed Forces of the past, but by today’s generation too. Mrs Grier and two Year 2 children laid a wreath on behalf of Witney Primary Schools This was a great privilege and we were honoured to represent our primary school community.

Grand Playground Opening
On Friday 28 October 2018 our playground was officially opened by Mr. Robert Courts MP.
St. Mary's is an extremely caring school community where staff go to great lengths to support pupils and their families. Children quickly settle into the stimulating environment, make good progress and become keen learners.
