“St Barnabas is a great, small school. We love how diverse its population is, with families of different backgrounds mixing together. Everyone knows everyone and we all look after each other. My children have been very well supported, and Mrs Tillotson is excellent at settling small children into school and working with each of them at their level during the Reception year.”   Reception and Year 4 Parent 

Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Barnabas’ C of E Primary School

We are a one-form entry school, with a nursery class, withiin walking distance of Oxford City centre and its museums, university departments, theatres and libraries.

We teach creatively with a curriculum designed to promote achievement and a love of learning and with a strong emphasis on the music, art and outdoor learning.  Our links with St Barnabas’ Church promote Christian values within a multicultural and multi-faith 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 love to tell you more about our school and, while visits inside are not possible at the moment, please contact the office if you would like to come and meet us and see through the windows. Alternatively please call or email if you have any questions.
