At North Hinksey, the ethos of love for one another underpins all we do. We believe an atmosphere of respect, kindness and love supports all staff, pupils and families to feel welcomed and safe, and in turn enables all to flourish and achieve. Families of children attending the school generally live in the local area and there is a strong community feel about the school. The Home School Association (HSA) is led by parents who raise funds for the school through a range of family events.

Set in a quiet village location on the edge of Oxford city, we are a secure and attractive setting, with classrooms and learning areas well distributed across the site. There is plenty of space for our 210 children both indoor and out. We have a playground, playing field, a small forest school space and our much loved “Bug Bungalow” outdoor classroom to enable learning in all sorts of environments!
