North Oxfordshire primary school set to benefit from £2.8m of improvements

Pupils at Bloxham Church of England Primary School are set to benefit from just under £2.8 million programme of renovations and improvements, funded by Oxfordshire County Council.  

The school has already been expanded in stages, over several years, to support increased demand for places.

This latest programme of work will involve constructing a new school hall with storage, repurposing the current hall as a multifunctional teaching space and the refurbishment of an existing building to provide a kitchen.

Councillor John Howson, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Young People’s Services, said: “These are exciting plans for Bloxham Church of England Primary School, reflecting our commitment to provide a top class learning and teaching environment for Oxfordshire’s children.”

The new hall will be located at the front of the school, adjacent to the main entrance and will be of red brick to blend with the existing school building.

Improvements to the school’s forecourt and parking area will also be made, including adding a disabled parking space.

Planning permission was granted in April 2023 for the scheme. Construction is due to start early 2024 and will take around a year to complete.
