Beckley School is a Church of England (Controlled) Primary School with approximately 150 children serving the villages of Beckley, Elsfield, Horton-cum-Studley, Stanton St John and Forest Hill. We also attract a number of children from Headington and other areas of Oxford. Beckley itself is situated six miles north east of Oxford. Our school lies in a quiet lane close to the Parish Church and is surrounded by picturesque countryside. For most purposes, a controlled School operates within very similar rules to those of County Schools. The main difference is that there are foundation Governors on the Governing Body, nominated by the Parish Church Council
