ohn Hampden School caters for children between the ages of 3 and 11 years of age. Children attend Nursery from the age of 3 and are able to start primary school full time in the academic year that they become 5. Our pupils come from the town of Thame, Oxfordshire, and villages in the surrounding area. We are classified as a 'community school'. Our school is a friendly and caring place, committed to excellence in learning. We aim to support children sympathetically and encourage positive attitudes to learning, school and life. We believe that the higher the expectations we have of the pupils, the greater their achievement will be. Working closely with parents, we want all children to develop their full potential and to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills in a wide variety of subjects and activities. We also trust that they will find enjoyment and satisfaction in learning and working with other children and adults. Our school enjoys a lovely setting, with its own extensive playing fields, large playgrounds and a magnificent Victorian schoolhouse at the front.
