Our brand new one form entry school opened its doors to reception and nursery children for the first time in September 2020 in Banbury; We are located on the Belway housing developments of Hanwell View and Cherry Fields, off Southam Road. Each year our school will increase its age range, adding an additional year group until it is an all through primary school in 2026.
We are proud of our new school and its amazing facilities, inside and outside the classroom, that will allow us to deliver our exciting and enriching curriculum. As a GLF Academy school, we are wholly committed to ensuring the highest standard of education and provision for our children.
Our strongest motivation is a passion for learning. Our aim is to ensure that when children leave us, they are empowered with a love of learning, confidence through developing a strong vocabulary and an insatiable zest for life and all the wonderful opportunities that they will one day experience and have access to. For us here at Cherry Fields, learning is a broad umbrella. Our curriculum is posited on the theories of knowledge acquisition and reducing cognitive load. Our staff team have been developing this curriculum in our sister schools over the last 2 years, meaning that we are on the front foot of embedded curriculum design and educational theory - please read all about our exciting STEAM curriculum in the curriculum section of our website.
We believe in offering a curriculum that ensures all children benefit and learn whatever their individual challenges. We have a strong ethos and culture around our 12 school values which means that we reward and draw attention to the value rather than the outcome. We strive to achieve excellence whilst internalising respect, kindness and determination therefore growing and developing well-rounded, polite, confident, articulate and empowered children – the next generation is off to a very good start!

Our aim is to work with the local community to ensure Cherry Fields is a place ‘where children grow, learn and flourish together’.
