Situated in the heart of a beautiful village, 8 miles from Banbury and 4 miles from Brackley, our school is passionate about ensuring that all our boys and girls are supported and challenged, ultimately achieving their personal best. Our learners enjoy outdoor learning in a rural setting and small class sizes mean that we can provide individual support and guidance.
We believe that arts and sports are essential in developing resilience, creativity and imagination. Because of this, we have specialist Art, Music, Dance and PE teachers who inspire our young learners every week to achieve creatively and on the sports field.
We have invested in weekly visits to Brackley Swimming Pool, enabling every child to leave Year 6 a strong swimmer. External partnerships also include our very special relationship with Greatworth Hall Farm. Our children walk from school to farm and experience lambing, cooking, baking and working the land. This year our alliance won BAYER’s FACE Award for Farm School Partnership 2017.
School Motto: YES, I CAN!Mrs Lesley Lutas-Brown Headteacher
Our Greatgrub Breakfast Club opens daily from 7.45am, and our children stay after school in our Smarty Arty, Drama, Hotshots, Basketball and PE clubs, meaning that our school can provide wraparound care whilst our children are still learning and having fun.

Following a recent visit from Ofsted, Greatworth Primary School were very pleased to receive a ‘Good’ rating in overall effectiveness of the school. Our Head Teacher, Lesley Lutas-Brown, who joined the school 2 years ago received great praise. Ofsted stated, “this rapidly improving school is well led. The head teacher is determined that all pupils will achieve the best of their ability.”
Situated in the heart of a great village community, the school believes the arts and sports are essential in developing resilience, creativity and imagination. Ofsted agree that “the school’s curriculum enables pupils to develop a wide range of skills. A high proportion of pupils learn to play a musical instrument, and all pupils leave the school in Year 6 able to swim”. In addition the school has invested a lot of time in developing reading and writing across the school and this was recognised by Ofsted who stated “the teaching of reading is a strength. A high proportion of pupils greatly enjoy reading”.
Greatworth School has confidence that being a rural school with smaller classes, means that they can provide a good level of individual support and guidance. The schools partnership with Greatworth Hall Farm means that children can walk from school to the farm, and experience a wide range of skills and experiences, learning about lambing, cooking, baking and working the land.
The school is absolutely thrilled at their accreditation and that Ofsted recognised, from pupil and parents’ feedback, that most pupils enjoy coming to the school and that the children are happy here. Mrs Lutas-Brown is also pleased that they recognised that we are a rapidly improving school, the staff, governors, parents and children work hard, and we will not be resting on our laurels, the Greatworth ship continues its journey to greater success!
