Headteacher Welcome

Welcome to Crowmarsh Primary school, a community focused on supporting children to care, grow, persevere and shine!

We are a successful one form primary school with a history of excellent end of key stage results. The staff team care and are dedicated to supporting children to grow and be ready for the next stage in their education.

Located in Crowmarsh Village, on the outskirts of Wallingford, we enjoy a school site with plenty of outside space which we continue to utilise throughout our curriculum. This is one of the features that attracted me to join the school as Headteacher in January 2023.

I love being a Headteacher, I know it takes compassion, perseverance & kindness, as well as a happy team of like-minded people to make this happen. A successful school depends on all of us working together and shining in our own individual ways. One of my core beliefs is ‘treating others as you wish to be treated yourself.’ 

I am available each day at the school gate, before and after school, so please say hello.
