What our children say:
Ahead of our last Open Day, children from Squirrel class were tasked with making posters and adverts for the school. Here is a selection of what they had to say about Aston Rowant!
Come and visit Aston Rowant School!
If you are lucky, you might be able to come to the exciting willow dome. We have pretty bikes. The climbing frame is really exciting. We have a big, exciting football pitch. There are lots of nice smells around. Our school is really big. We look forward to seeing you. We hope you like it.

Come and visit the football pitch.
Come and visit our wonderful school. It has beautiful surroundings. We have a gigantic field and we get to play on it after lunch. If you are lucky, you might see a grey, fluffy squirrel. You might go to the bushy willow dome. We hope you come soon.

Come to Aston Rowant School
If you are lucky, you might see a fluffy squirrel. You might see the swaying willow dome. If you are walking on the path, you can see trees that change colour every season. We have a fun climbing frame and a ball pitch.

Our school is based in the beautiful village of Aston Rowant in Oxfordshire.
The village school in Aston Rowant was founded in or before 1833 as a National School for girls. In 1844 its present premises were built and it became a mixed school. In 1931 it was reorganised as a junior school and in 1951 it became a Church of England school.
The school buildings include the original stone built school house which is now used for the school office and main hall.
The class rooms are located alongside the extensive playground which boasts a recently installed play frame which was generously purchased thanks to the fundraising of our PTA.
At Aston Rowant we are blessed to have wonderful outdoor facilities which host our Forest School each week, as well as ensuring our children have the opportunity to participate in many different sports during the year.
You'll often hear the children refer to our MUGA which is our Multi Use Games Area at the back of the school buildings and is made up of our meadow, football pitch and netball / tennis court.
We often host our fellow Thame Partnership of Schools for sports competitions thanks to our sports facilities.
