We are pleased to share with you that Mr Gareth Griffiths has been appointed as executive head teacher across Bayards Hill and Barton Park Primary School for at least Barton Park School’s first year of opening.

Gareth has been working in the Trust since June 2019 as Head teacher at Bayards Hill and through hard work and dedication we have already seen the school go from strength to strength.

In his previous role, Gareth opened a new Primary Free Dchool – Lace Hill Academy – in Buckingham. As Head, Gareth worked with the new school community to develop a strong school rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted under his headship. After 4 years of successful headship he moved on to join CSAT and Bayards Hill Primary School and brings a wealth of experience in opening new and leading successful schools as he embarks on opening Barton Park Primary School in September 2020.

We are delighted that Gareth has taken on this new challenge and are very excited to have him on board. Expect to see lots more of him if you choose to join us here at Barton Park Primary School.

Please attend one of our upcoming open events for your chance to meet Gareth. They are at Barton Park Pavilion OX3 9SD on the following dates:

  • 28 November 10-11.30am
  • 13 December 10-11.30am
  • 8 January 5-7pm

We would love to meet you and talk to you about our plans for the school. You can also see how the build progress is coming along – the pavilion is next door to the school site.
