We are a thriving, busy and welcoming school in Witney, Oxfordshire providing a child-centred high quality education where children flourish socially, emotionally, academically, physically and spiritually. You can find out more about our curriculum here

Our Lady of Lourdes is part of the Pope Francis Multi Academy Company in the Archdiocese of Birmingham.

We have 7 classes.

  • Year 3 - 7-8 years

  • Year 4 - 8-9 years

  • Year 5 - 9-10 years

  • Year 6 - 10-11 years 

All children from Reception Class (summer term) to Yr 6 are allocated to a House at Our Lady of Lourdes. The children are put into their Houses for in-school competitions, including Sports Day at the end of the summer term. There are four Houses:

  • St Thomas Aquinas – Red

  • St Francis of Assisi – Blue

  • St John Bosco – Green

  • St Catherine of Alexandria – Yellow




Each has two Year 6 House Captains, who are voted for by the Year 6 class at the start of the school year. The House Captains help to organise their teams and are role models for the other children in school. During assemblies throughout the year they are required to report to the rest of the school on competitions and successes. Each Term there is a prize for the Team with the most points.
