Early Years just received an Outstanding report, October 2018

Welcome to our school 


Welcome to our school website.  Our school, Orchard Fields Community School, is situated in Banbury, North Oxfordshire.  

We are very pleased that our Early Years classes (Nursery and Reception) have just been judged outstanding following a recent inspection. Please click here to read the report. The children are already enjoying the many activities and learning opportunities planned for this autumn term.    

We are very proud of our school and are very much at the heart of the local community. Our children, staff and parents are very welcoming to all visitors. We are a caring community and enjoy sharing our learning experiences with other schools locally.

At Orchard Fields we believe that all children have the right to the best possible education and we strive to ensure all of our pupils become the very best that they can be. We have high expectations of all pupils.

As Headteacher; I passionately believe in all children reaching their full potential in all areas of the curriculum. For me a child’s time here is the springboard for their future successes and lifetime chances and aspirations. 

I look forward to welcoming you and your children in school.

Mrs Dawn Shilston​
