Headteacher’s Welcome

St. Leonard’s Church of England Primary School has a long tradition of serving the community of Grimsbury, in Banbury.  We pride ourselves on our children; they are polite, responsible citizens who care for each other and act with love, respect and responsibility.

Our staff are the heartbeat of the school. They nurture our children, creating warm relationships which enable children to develop self-confidence and positive attitudes towards learning.

School days should be the best days of our lives, providing fond memories and friendships to look back upon. Our aim is to provide the experiences, skills and personal qualities needed for children to thrive and to meet their full potential.

If you are seeking a place for your child, now or in the future, please telephone to arrange a visit and see for yourself our happy, caring school.

Very best wishes



St Leonards C E Primary School
