Realising potential through partnership


The Faringdon Academy of Schools (FAoS) consists of: Buckland Primary School, John Blandy Primary School, Faringdon Infant School, Faringdon Junior School, Longcot & Fernham Primary School, Shrivenham Primary School, Watchfield Primary School and Faringdon Community College. We became a 3 school Multi-School Academy in April 2012 and expanded to include 8 schools on 1st November 2013.

Our Academy will create a seamless educational experience for our students across all key stages to develop responsible, capable and confident young people who are active citizens in the 21st Century ... more

Each of the eight schools within the Academy will retain their own distinctive characters and identities, including their own uniforms, logos and web sites.

The Academy seeks to add value to all of our schools through close partnership. Our school leadership team are working to improve standards in teaching and learning across our schools. We also benefit from coordinating many services (such as IT systems, finance and facilities management.)


The Board of Directors hereby present their annual report together with the financial statements and auditors’ report of the charitable company for the period 6th March 2013 to 31st August 2014.
