Founded in 1989 as the junior school to the established senior school, it occupies its own distinctive area on the campus of over 50 acres of grounds, surrounded by glorious Oxfordshire countryside. The school has a state-of-the-art IT suite and makes use of many of the facilities of the wider school campus, including an indoor swimming pool (all pupils are taught to swim). The rural surroundings are central to the pupils’ learning experience and much of the curriculum involves outdoor learning. Classes are small and the emphasis is on participation and enjoyment. It is a Quaker school, which aims to encourage pupils to exercise self-discipline, showing respect to all regardless of their status; to be sensitive to others and where possible to be peacemakers. An important part of the Quaker contribution to pupils’ spiritual life is the daily Meeting for Worship. The school has a well-established reputation for enabling pupils with various learning difficulties to achieve their full potential; a learning support programme helps pupils develop and improve their literacy and numeracy skills and there is a very strong dyslexia support programme. Almost all pupils go on to Sibford School.
