Prep School Oxfordshire – Windrush Valley School – Catchment Area

We believe that every child deserves the best possible start. Therefore we are committed to making educational excellence accessible to as many children as possible. To help meet our commitment we offer affordable fees and a wide catchment area. We draw children from towns, hamlets and villages in Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire in a twenty mile radius around the village of Ascott-under-Wychwood, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire.

New Admissions

We’re a private school and as such prepare boys and girls aged 3-11 for a successful future in either the independent or state senior school sectors. Our class sizes currently average 10 pupils. This means your child receives one-to-one attention from our high qualified and experienced teaching staff, delivering academic excellence, building self-esteem, self-confidence and independence. Through its carefully planned programme for settling new children in quickly, the school ensures that the transition process is a rewarding experience. Prior to admission, children are encouraged to spend time with their prospective class in order to get to know their classmates and teacher. The youngest age a child can start is three, with older children joining at later times.

If you want to give your child the best possible start – excellence starts here.
