Oakridge Parochial School is a small, rural primary school at the heart of a thriving village community. It is nestled in the beautiful Cotswold countryside in the village of Oakridge Lynch, situated between Stroud and Cirencester.
Schooling in Oakridge dates back to approximately 1730 - a heritage the school is proud to continue in the 21st century. There are strong links with parents, residents and the village church, all of whom provide a huge amount of support.
With just thirty five children on role it is very much like a family. All pupils throughout the two mixed-age classes genuinely care for, and help, one another. Small class sizes means each child receives a very personal approach to their education. The children are so very lucky to have direct access to so much gorgeous countryside, right on their doorstep.
The Oakridge School Association consists of an active and enthusiastic parent group who hold regular fundraising events throughout the year. Their efforts raise money for the school, which means projects like the new allotment can go ahead. The group is a very down to earth sort of bunch. Meetings are generally held in the local pub and it often turns into a rather pleasant evening chatting to friends.
