We would like to offer you a warm welcome to Combe Church of England Primary School. We are a small, rural primary school set in the heart of the beautiful countryside of West Oxfordshire. With around 110 pupils, we have a close-knit family feel that nurtures all pupils and allows for a sense of belonging.

At Combe, we encourage children’s natural curiosity in their learning.  Through our creative and challenging curriculum, we ensure that children are active learners with high aspirations. We believe in ensuring that children receive a broad and balanced curriculum, where individual talents are identified and developed. Whenever possible, we love to incorporate the outdoors into all aspects of our learning.

Our school has a committed staff team who strive to reach high standards in everything we do, and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with parents and the local community. Education is best done in partnership between home and school, and we regard parents as an active partner in their child’s education and value their interest and support.

We would love to welcome you to visit our school. Please contact the school office to make an appointment – email Candida Checksfield on office.3142@combe.oxon.sch.uk

Mrs Rachel Joannou, Headteacher
