Welcome to our school 


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

The children came back to school after half-term full of excitement and interest in learning and we look forward many activities and opportunities the children will enjoy this year.  

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​

Nursery Class

Looking for a Nursery place for your 3 year old? 

In Nursery, we provide an engaging, stimulating and nurturing environment for your child to develop their full potential in readiness for their move into Reception. Our children experience a wide variety of activities to support all their learning and emotional needs with the support of a caring teacher led staff. Staff will be available to discuss any questions or requirements you may have. 

Last term the children sang 'Happy Birthday' to the Winnie the Witch Illustrator, Korky Paul. We hope you enjoy watching this video.

On Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd February Lucas Jet Circus came to visit our school and what a wonderful time was had by all the children.
