A message from Fiona, Chair of the Governors

Our unique structure enables us to offer specialist provision alongside a mainstream setting at each phase: nursery, primary and secondary, which are situated on three sites.

nnovative learning techniques are designed to meet a wide range of individual needs. Bishopswood presents a truly inclusive environment that is safe, stimulating, challenging and fun.

The commitment, care and expertise of our staff are complimented by our strong partnership with families, Governors, our school association (BSA) and the local community. It is the quality of these relationships, which makes Bishopswood the remarkable place it is.

As a maintained school we are an integral part of Oxfordshire County Council’s Special Educational provision and we have strong links with our neighbouring authorities.

We at Bishopswood believe that we provide a tailored inclusive education for every student. We hope this prospectus will provide an insight into the unique offerings that we provide for your child.

We look forward to meeting you.
