Headteachers Welcome

I would like to warmly welcome you to the website of New Marston Primary School in Oxford. We are proud that we are part of the River Learning Trust.

I have been full-time at the school since the beginning of June, after 2 successful headships elsewhere. I am a National Leader of Education and have experience in bringing about rapid and sustained improvements in schools. Exciting times are ahead for the school; teachers and leadership teams across the Trust work closely to support and challenge each other and there is strong collaboration and mutual support within and between our schools. We are committed to ensuring that the school continues to improve rapidly and provides the best possible education for your children. We are continually striving for excellence in all that we do.

We have already been working hard to improve learning experiences for the children and staff are working tirelessly to transform the school into an excellent place to be and to learn. Further support comes from the new Governing Body, who are relentless in their approach to school improvement..

New Marston is committed to providing an exciting and safe environment where everyone feels valued, loves learning and develops the skills to learn for life.

This website will hopefully tell you all the things that you need to know about our school. If you would like to know more, please do contact us.

Thank you for taking the time to visit us on-line and if you would like to visit us anytime please call 01865 761560 to arrange a time.
