Primary Schools in Banbury - Harriers Banbury Academy

Harriers Banbury Academy

Harriers is a primary school situated in the Easington ward of Banbury (formerly Harriers Ground Primary). It has 295 pupils in the 4 – 11 age range. It operates on a big site near the town centre with a playground and large field that is used at break and lunchtimes and for sporting events by pupils. In Spring 2012, after the Governors identified a number of problems, Ms Vicki McLean was transferred from Dashwood Banbury Academy to take charge at Harriers. Later in the year a snap Ofsted Inspection found that: "Pupils thoroughly enjoy school and learning. They feel safe, behave well and have positive attitudes". In February 2013 the school left Oxfordshire County Council control to become an Academy, working alongside the local secondary school Banbury Academy and the Aspirations Academy Trust.

Famous quotes containing the word academy:

    ...I have come to make distinctions between what I call the academy and literature, the moral equivalents of church and God. The academy may lie, but literature tries to tell the truth.
    Dorothy Allison (b. 1949)
