Welcome to St Mary's

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 our vision. 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 the Acting 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.

Welcome Back Year 1s!

We were delighted to see all our Year 1 children back in school again today and they were equally delighted to be with each other and catch up!

Reception Raring to Go!

The Reception children were ready and raring to go when they all came back together on Monday morning! It was a wonderful day with lots of happy, smiling faces!

All Our Year 2s are Back!

It was so lovely to hear the Year 2s playing and laughing together again in the top playground!

The deeply embedded Christian vision of the school drives every aspect of school life. The school is exceptional in enabling pupils and adults to flourish so that they are able to 'achieve their potential and develop their talents'.
