'Let your Light Shine' Matthew 5:16

Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Grove Church of England Primary School.

I am proud to be the Headteacher at Grove CE Primary school where our vision of 'let your light shine' is at the heart of everything we do. We believe everyone has the right to shine through exciting learning opportunities and a broad and balanced curriculum. Rooted in our values of love, respect and resilience, we strive to ensure every child will flourish and reach their full potential. We relish the opportunity to show our wonderful school to visitors. Please do contact the school office if you would like to see more. 

Head Teacher:  Donna Blake



Our background


The school is currently situated on a pleasant open site adjacent to farmland to the north. The 1960s single storey building and site are spacious and well cared for, providing a good environment for our children to learn.


Grove is situated a short distance from the market town of Wantage and is made up of mixed post-war housing created through successive developments giving a population of approximately 9500. The Local Plan has earmarked Grove for substantial development in the near future that we hope will provide increased benefits for our School.


The surrounding area of the school is of a rural nature, the nearest major towns of Abingdon, Oxford and Newbury being easily accessible by car.

The School catchment area falls mainly within the parish of St.John the Baptist Church
