Reception Intake 2024-25 Open Afternoons - dates now released!          Christmas Fair - Thursday 7th December          Support the school through FOBS and the Brightwell School Eco Alliance

Welcome to Brightwell

"Learning together and growing together"

Friendship - Respect - Tolerance


A very warm welcome to Brightwell cum Sotwell C of E Primary School. We are a small village school of just over 150 pupils in the beautiful and community-minded village of Brightwell cum Sotwell. In September 2017, we became an academy working within the Merchant Taylors' Oxfordshire Academy Trust alongside Wallingford School. The move towards academy status and our relationship with Wallingford School has drawn governors, FOBS, parents and members of the wider community together with a real sense of purpose, and what a community it is! 

But don't just take our word for it, come and see for yourself.

If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact Mrs Major in the school office on the phone number or through the email address listed below.

We look forward to seeing you!
