Welcome to Church Cowley St James C of E Primary School and Nursery.
Our school is a voluntary controlled (VC) Church of England School on the outskirts of the city of Oxford and has been serving its community for over 170 years. As the community has grown, so has the school. We are oversubscribed, admitting pupils, from a wide variety of backgrounds and from the ages of 3 to 11, with two classes of 30 children in each year group. We have high expectations for our pupils, with personal development and academic progress valued equally.
This website offers a brief introduction to the life of the school. However written information never gives the complete picture, so if you would like to visit us - to meet pupils and staff and to find out more, you would be extremely welcome. Come and see our school at work. We will be delighted to meet you.
Our School Prayer
This is our school,
Let peace be here.
Let us be full of hope, happiness, faith
and love for each other.
