Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to St Mary and St John CE Primary School! It is a real privilege to be the new Headteacher of such a vibrant and caring school. We are an inclusive, richly diverse two-form entry city school, in the heart of East Oxford. At Mary and John, our vision is to help children to do everything in love, reaching their full potential in an environment where they feel safe, healthy, engaged, supported and challenged as they learn and achieve. Our aim is for every child to be inspired and motivated, so that they thrive in their learning and want to achieve more. The friendly and hard-working staff team are committed to every child achieving in all areas of school life.

Set next to The Kidneys, there is an abundance of greenery all around, and yet we are only a short walk from Oxford City with its many cultural resources which enrich our curriculum. We are fortunate to have a spacious site which has undergone recent refurbishments. We are delighted with the improvements to our learning environment, including a beautiful library at the heart of the school. 

Our reception children are educated for one year on Hertford Street at Comper Foundation Stage. We have great links with Comper and children move to our Meadow Lane site when they are in Year 1.

We hope this website gives you a feel of our school, but do come and see for yourselves. Please do not hesitate to contact the school office on 01865 723841 to make an appointment. We look forward to seeing you very soon!
