Kingham Primary School is just off the village green at the edge of Kingham in West Oxfordshire. Kingham is four miles from the market town of Chipping Norton and six miles from Stow-on-the-Wold. It is 25 miles northwest of Oxford and has a direct train service to Oxford and London Paddington.

Kingham Primary School location


A traditional English village, Kingham has a 14th-century church, two pubs with restaurants of national reputation, a village shop and post office. It was recognised by The Sunday Times in 2016 as “The best place to live in the South East”.

The parish has a population of less than a thousand, but Kingham Primary School also serves surrounding villages, including nearby Churchill. The nearest town of Chipping Norton lies outside the officially designated area of the school, but the school admits children from a wide area, subject to the availability of places.

The surrounding Cotswolds countryside is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, the second largest protected landscape in England. The low rolling hills provide the honey-coloured limestone that characterises the stone buildings that are typical of the region.
