Welcome to our wonderful school!  FJS is a large, 3 form entry junior school in the market town of Faringdon.  We are proud to be part of Faringdon Academy of Schools (FAS), which enables us to work closely alongside our neighbouring schools, sharing expertise, skills and knowledge.  We have a superb site, located right beside the town park and library, lucky to benefit from extensive fields.  We are looking forward to expanding imminently to become a full primary school, from nursery through to Year 6.        

One of the many strengths of our school is our team of outstanding staff, which is recognised time and again.  At FJS, there are certain beliefs that all staff in the school subscribe to and these are:

  • "All" pupils can make exceptional progress with the right support
  • Intelligence is not "fixed"; effort equals reward
  • Outstanding teaching is the key to success for our pupils

We all truly believe in the potential of every pupil and will do whatever it takes to ensure each child in our care makes exceptional progress.  We also recognise that progress does not only relate to academic achievement, but also to emotional maturity too.  Here at FJS, we know that strong pastoral support is essential if our pupils are to reach their true potential and we invest heavily in this area.  

If you would like a tour of our school or additional information, please don't hesitate to contact us.  

Warm regards,

Miss J Donnellan
