• A very warm welcome to our school website!

    Pride in Our School, Pride in Ourselves, Pride in Each Other

    Oxford Grove is a very special place where we challenge all our children to be aspirational, supporting their hopes and dreams and guiding them as they search for their own pathways to success and fulfilment.

    Our aim is to create for our amazing children a nurturing and inspirational learning community which encourages and supports them in the pursuit of their ambitions.

    Our dedicated staff team aims to help every child to face their individual challenges with courage and determination and to discover their unique talents and strengths. We are totally committed to removing barriers to learning and developing in each child a love of learning and a shared pride in achievement in all its forms.

    In our school, we have high expectations of each other, recognise each person as an individual and celebrate the diversity of our community, treating everyone with respect.

    We are passionate about helping each child to become equipped with the skills and attributes they need to pursue their dreams and become lifelong learners and, of course, we know how important it is to have fun too!

    We hope this website will give you a flavour of Oxford Grove – a unique place where we believe your child will thrive.
