An exceptional rural village school in Oxfordshire for children aged 3-11.

Tucked away off the corner of the village green, Kingham Primary School looks out over woods and open fields in the countryside of the Cotswolds.

As well as Kingham, Churchill and other local villages in West Oxfordshire within its catchment, the school serves a wider area, including the nearby town of Chipping Norton and parts of neighbouring Gloucestershire and Warwickshire, subject to the availability of places.

Kingham Primary School has around 200 children in seven year groups. There is also a nursery class offering pre-school places to children from the age of three. The school is highly regarded by parents and is rated as outstanding by Ofsted. Although secular in outlook, it has links to the local church and welcomes children of any faith.

The main school building is about a hundred years old and has been subsequently extended to provide seven classrooms, a modern school hall, kitchen, library area, and a purpose-built early years building, which accommodates the nursery and reception class.

Situated in leafy grounds, there is a large playground, forest area, school garden, and a large playing field.
