We recently had our OFSTED inspection which describes us as a Good school. In March we were also inspected as part of the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) that graded our school as Outstanding.

These are some of the comments from the reports:
Bloxham is an inclusive school ... which ensures rapid progress in learning by all pupils.
Warm, open and supportive culture that enables staff and pupils to develop confidence and succeed in their work.
The distinctive Christian values are actively encouraged by inspirational leadership from the head teacher and senior leaders, resulting in very high standards of behaviour and high quality relationships across the school.
The school’s relationship with parents, St. Mary’s Church and the community are outstanding.
High expectations of staff and pupils and you (headteacher) demonstrate a clear commitment to further improving the quality of provision.
These inspections follow on from our excellent results in 2016 (and previous years) showing that we are consistently in the top 10% of schools in the country.
You may also know that we have recently been awarded the prestigious Artsmark Gold Award in recognition of the outstanding work in art and culture. We are extremely lucky to have both specialist music and sports teachers at our school, who support our success in these areas.
However you may not know that we have spaces in many year groups, so if you live in or close to Bloxham, or are planning on doing so, please do contact us for further information. It would be my pleasure to show you our school.
