Brightwell cum Sotwell is in many ways the ideal English village. It is a peaceful place with many thatched cottages, a duck pond and the pubs halls and churches that are the hallmarks of rural life in this part of the world. It is near the historic market town of Wallingford, which is a small and traditional market town with lots of quaint buildings, situated on the banks of a particularly pretty stretch of the Thames.
Oxford is a great city to spend time in and is only about 15 miles away, as is Reading. Didcot Parkway, which is ten minutes from Brightwell, links these communities by rail. From there it is only 45 minutes to London by train. The quality of life in the area is very high indeed, being a pleasant combination of a rural setting close to such different towns, as well as the capital.

The school
Brightwell is a small village school of just over 134 children serving a community of families that are aspirant, care about education and who bring their children up well. Behaviour and manners in the school are very good indeed. It is a school where really good teachers can take risks in lessons that children appreciate and make work.
The school became an academy in September 2017 and works collaboratively with a very strong and popular 11-18 school in Wallingford.
We recognise that we need very talented people, who are ambitious for the children they work with as well as themselves, to help make this into the best little school around and that comes with significant investment. We have created real excitement and a buzz about the work being done from the outset. Our successful school has learned a great deal and earned a very strong reputation in the community, and in the wider local primary sector.
