Welcome to The Three Schools, a unique and successful initiative: to provide all-through primary schooling in a village setting yet with the facilities and opportunities beyond those that you would expect.  

To form ‘The Three Schools’, Swanbourne Church of England School, Mursley Church of England School and Drayton Parslow Village School came together, with the support of the Oxford Diocese and the Local Education Authority, to operate as a single entity with one Headteacher and leadership team.

Our schools are at the heart of their village communities, providing happy, safe and stimulating environments, rooted in Christian values. Working together with our parents, we nurture each child's potential and promote a lifelong love of learning. We encourage our children to become independent, self-motivated learners to enable them to grow in self-esteem, achieve success and flourish in the rapidly changing world. We strive for excellence and enjoyment in all that we do.

With delightful children and dedicated staff, ‘The Three Schools’ offer the perfect start to a school career. Why not visit for yourself? We would love to show you around.
