Welcome From the Head

Welcome to St John’s Priory School in Banbury, an independent day Prep School for boys and girls from 3 to 11 years. At St John’s Priory we offer a vibrant all round education; providing the best possible opportunities for our children to grow and fulfil their natural potential.

Our Family First approach ensures a nurturing environment and offers flexible before and after school provision. Our small class sizes enable the children to develop into adventurous, confident and engaging learners and our teachers, to tailor the curriculum to the individual needs of each child.

Specialist teaching is an asset of the school enabling us to achieve academic excellence. Strong links with nearby independent school, Bloxham School afford us regular access to fantastic sporting facilities.

The only way to truly understand the atmosphere of our school is to come and visit us. You will most likely find us absorbed in activity on the academic, sporting, musical, theatrical and artistic fronts and will see for yourself the Priory welcome that each of our children and staff so generously extend to visitors.

Our school has been rated ‘EXCELLENT’ by the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI).

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.

Mrs Michelle Jenkin
