The Warriner School

Welcome from our Executive Headteacher and Head of School

Dr Annabel Kay
Executive Headteacher

At The Warriner School we are all strongly committed to creating a community within which every individual knows that they are valued through placing emphasis on developing the whole person. In doing this, we develop happy, confident students who are fully supported to fulfil their potential both academically and personally. I hope that as you explore our website, you get a flavour of this unique culture and feel that our school is one where your child can flourish. Having led the school for a number of years, both in my previous role as headteacher and more recently as executive headteacher, I am proud to have been part of the academic life of so many wonderful young people who have gone on to do the most amazing things.

Head of School Welcome

Sharon Nicholls
Head of School

Welcome to The Warriner School; a large rural 11-18 secondary school, in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, on the edge of the thriving market town of Banbury. I am very proud to have been appointed as Head of School and I hold the school’s moral purpose very close to my heart: excellence for all our students. The Warriner offers maximum opportunities for our young people to achieve both academically and socially; instilling in them our core values: to be responsible, to be respectful and to be ready.

The Warriner School has an excellent academic reputation, both locally and more widely, and we are very proud to be an integral part of the community that we serve. We have also developed a strong school community that we all belong to; a school community which is well resourced with talented and committed staff, who work together tirelessly to ensure our students are successful and happy at school. Alongside our research-informed, knowledge-rich curriculum sits a pastoral approach which supports the wellbeing and fulfilment of our all students. Indeed the inclusive nature of our school is what makes us most proud.

At The Warriner we run a wide variety of extra-curricular and leadership opportunities for our students, allowing them to show their potential in so many ways; from their creative talents, sporting talents, STEM talents or their leadership talents, by becoming prefects or being part of our sixth form student leadership teams. The opportunities are boundless and, at the heart of these opportunities, lies our moral purpose – ‘excellence for all.’

We are proud of our students and staff, so if you would like more details, please call or email to arrange to speak to a member of staff. As soon as we are able to, we will be delighted to arrange a tour for you.
