Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Barnabas’ C of E Primary School

We are a one-form entry school with a nursery class situated in walking distance of the centre of Oxford and able to make the most of the rich variety of museums, university departments, theatres, libraries and  regular events that happen in Oxford.

We are a creative school with a strong emphasis on music and the arts. We teach creatively with a curriculum designed to promote achievement and a love of learning.

Our links with St Barnabas’ Church promote Christian values within a multi-cultural and multi faith school. Members of the community are delighted with the inclusive ethos of the school and we are proud to welcome many nationalities to our school.

Our families support the school in many ways and our committed PTA run events throughout the year including the popular annual Run Jericho.

We would be very happy to show you our school in action. Please contact the office if you would like to come and visit.
