Botley School is just outside Oxford City and we welcome all children and their parents to our school. We have a wonderfully diverse school community where we celebrate our differences and join together under the umbrella of British Values, eg. Respect and tolerance.
Our motto is “Creating Excellence, Embracing All”.
I have had the pleasure of being Headteacher at what was then Botley Primary School from January 2009. Since then there have been many changes: merging with the Nursery School and Children’s Centre onsite, to create Botley School, expanding to take more children to meet the needs of our growing local population, remodelling our buildings internally and having additional classrooms built in 2014-15 to accommodate our extra pupils.
At Botley School we have developed a hard working learning culture, with a clear focus on Reading, Writing and Mathematics. We strive to equip our children for today’s modern ever changing world, to meet and overcome any challenges they may face so that they can become happy, healthy, well balanced young people ready for their next stage in education.
Our governors, staff and parents are firmly embedded in our school ethos, having clear expectations and supporting the high standards we instil in all members of our school community. We have high quality, motivated staff working together to provide a flexible, challenging and broad skills based curriculum, including a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities, delivered through a variety of activities both within and outside the school.
We are very proud of our school grounds and Outdoor Learning and Forest School are an essential part of our curriculum, giving children an opportunity to develop their learning beyond the classroom.
Do contact our School Office to come and see for yourself.
