Graven Hill Primary School is a two form entry primary school located within the heart of the Graven Hill development.
The primary school is due to open in September 2023. When full it will have capacity for 420 primary places (Reception - Year 6) and 90 nursery places. The school will open as part of the Warriner Multi Academy Trust group of schools.
The Warriner MAT was set up in August 2015 with one secondary school (The Warriner), three primary schools (Bishop Carpenter, Hornton and Sibford Gower) and one preschool (Peachtree). A further two form entry primary school (Bishop Loveday) joined in June 2017 followed by a Northamptonshire primary school (Farthinghoe) in September 2018 and Finmere CofE Primary school in March 2020. A sponsored Northamptonshire primary school will join during 2020.
We have a proven track record of working effectively with all of our schools. This has been formally recognised by the Regional Schools Commissioner who has invited us to showcase our successes at his regional conferences and the DfE who included our MAT in their best practice document published in December 2016 in recognition of our support of smaller primary schools. The MAT leadership team have worked diligently to ensure the very highest standards are achieved by all our students. This relentless focus upon best practice in teaching and learning began well before the formal conversion date. As a result of this collaboration, all schools within the MAT continue to perform well above floor and coasting standards and one was placed in the top 1% of schools for its outcomes in 2016. Another of our primary schools was selected to take part in the parliamentary review of primary education in 2018 for outstanding practice. In 2020 one of our primary schools ranked within top 10 in Oxfordshire.
