About us

Tower Hill Primary School is a medium-sized primary school, situated in the market town of Witney. We are a single-form-entry school, set in beautiful grounds. We pride ourselves in being a happy, safe, caring and progressive values-based school, where staff and families work together to nurture self-belief and inspire a love for learning.

What do we want?

We are lucky enough to have our own "Dell", a patch of semi-mature woodland right on the school grounds. It needs funding to properly refurbish so that it is well equipped and safe. 

Who is this for?

Every penny donated will benefit all pupils at Tower Hill, and generations of future students. 

Why do we want it?

Children love the outdoors and find nature relaxing, inspiring and educational. We will use the revamped Dell space to provide outdoor learning opportunities year-round, for all students.
