Welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to St Mary’s Church of England Primary School. We are an academy that is part of the Oxford Diocesan Bucks School Trust (ODBST) – a multi academy trust (MAT).

We welcome children from the age of 3 to 11 years old, serving the Fairford Leys community on the outskirts of Aylesbury.

I feel very proud to lead a team where everyone truly wants the very best for our children, and are committed to achieving high standards, ensuring children’s well-being and providing high quality learning opportunities for all. Our curriculum is engaging and challenging, preparing our children for future life enabling them to be aspirational, independent and creative learners. We value our relationship with parents and the local community. Trips, visitors, community activities and a wide range of clubs enhance the opportunities for pupils at our school and we are particularly proud of the opportunities our pupils have to excel in music and extra-curricular sports.

Our values-based philosophy underpins the way that we work, instilling in our children Christian values, including Respect, Integrity and Resilience. This, combined with our wonderful facilities and safe, nurturing environment, enables our children to enjoy their learning, achieve excellent results and develop the confidence to ‘shine as lights in the world’.

I am extremely proud of our school and would welcome the opportunity to meet with you and introduce you to our staff and children.


Mrs Lisa Bennett
