About our School

CCSJ Primary School is a voluntary controlled (VC) Church of England School and has been serving its community for over 170 years. As the community has grown, so has the school. We are largely 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.

Our school is one of the largest Primary schools in Oxford City, admitting approximately 460 children through its doors every day we are an all through Primary school (Reception class to Year 6) with our own 60 place Nursery class.

Situated in bright, vibrant, Cowley we are proud of our Church and Motor industry heritage, large cultural mix and the diverse ethnicity of the school; it really makes the school a brilliant place to work and learn.
