Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Barnabas’ C of E Primary School

We are a one-form entry school, with a nursery class, within 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 show and tell you more about our school;  please contact the office if you would like to come and meet us. Alternatively please call or email if you have any questions.
