St John’s Priory School is a successful co-educational day prep school and Nursery for boys and girls from 3 – 11 years, set in the heart of Banbury town – offering a tradition of academic excellence through a vibrant all round education.

Children can join our nursery or reception class as ‘Little Conkers’ or can register in any class dependent on availability of places. Admission to the school is not limited to the September intake but is flexible to the needs of families moving in to the area, or transferring from another educational setting.

We encourage prospective parents and pupils to visit us by booking a personalised private tour with Mrs Michelle Jenkin, our Headmistress.

Please contact our Registrar, Mrs Gemma Osborne who will be pleased to talk you through the admissions process and current availability on 01295 259607 or email

Following a visit to the school, we invite all children to take part in two consecutive Taster Days so that they can join their year group, meet teachers and pupils, and get an idea of what life at St Johns’ Priory is like.

Why not take a look at our St Johns’ Priory School Social Media pages across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, which are updated regularly and give you a wonderful feel for school and nursery life here at SJP.
