Welcome to St Christopher’s C of E Primary School

At St Christopher’s Primary School a GOOD primary school in Cowley, our vision is to ‘have the courage to live life in all its fullness, to belong within our communityrespect and love those around us.’

We do this through nurture, learning and growing together.

We want to create a primary school which encourages everyone to be learners – to truly live their life in all its fullness – learning and growing together, we will foster and encourage deep curiosity about the world and the passion to achieve the very best in all that we do.

St Christopher’s primary school in the heart of Temple Cowley in Oxford, is a vibrant, happy and exciting place to be for children and their families.

We are a two-form entry school, including our own nursery for 3 and 4 year olds. Our children are taught in modern classrooms surrounded by our large green spaces and Forest School.

We serve our multi-cultural community by providing a creative and exciting curriculum that incorporates cultural and religious diversity; within the context of Christian belief and practice.

We are a Church of England school, we became an academy on February 1 2014, part of Oxford Diocesan School Trust.

The website can only give a flavour of our fabulous school so, if you are considering us for your child, we would be delighted to show you around and answer any questions you may have. We occasionally have places in the school for in-year admissions and will happily discuss this with you. As an Academy, we are able to process our own school admissions, so please contact the school directly (apart from Reception September admissions which are centrally allocated through Oxfordshire County Council). Please read our nursery page for information about admissions to the nursery class.
