What The Good Schools Guide says..
Lots of fresh air, smiley faces, muddy knees and heaps of praise. Despite relaxed ambience, pupils work hard and school’s academic record is impressive. At breaktime youngsters help themselves to cheese, crispbread, raw vegetables and fruit (they can bring in their own snacks on Fridays – no chocolate, though) before racing off to play outside in all weathers...
What the school says...
Carrdus School is set in the country above Banbury. For over 60 years it has encouraged children to make a confident start to school life and develop areas for success. It is a cheerful school, with a relaxed atmosphere, where disciplined behaviour, hard work and a good standard of manners are expected and achieved. ...Read more
Thank the school
Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.
Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.
What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2012, Edward Way BSc (40s). Educated at Radley College and UCL, where he read geology. PGCE at University of Bath, followed by posts at Cothill, Chandlings, Cheam School and Lambrook School, then 10 years as head at Great Tew Primary School, 12 miles away.
Junior school is currently full to bursting – tribute, says school, to the amazing staff. No entrance test – ‘It’s first come, first served’. Very broad intake. Majority of pupils come from Banbury and surrounding villages, with parents registering children up to three years in advance. Most common entry points are nursery, reception and year 3, but it’s worth trying in between too. No scholarships offered but means-tested bursaries sometimes available.
Special Education Needs
SEN to us covers both ends of the spectrum: from gifted-and-talented to pupils with quite a level of learning difficulties. Our provision aims to meet needs as fully as possible; which will be some one-to-one work with ALL children in school, and individual or small-group work with a number of them. Three teachers work in this way, one each for English, Maths and Science. A further two teachers give general support or extension work. This additional tuition, given at our discretion, is a "value-added" part of our normal school curriculum, usually much enjoyed by the children concerned. Nov 09.
