The Faringdon Academy of Schools was established on 1st April 2012. 

Faringdon Academy of Schools became an 8 School MAT on 1st November 2013. The Academy includes the three Faringdon schools: Faringdon Infant School; Faringdon Junior School; Faringdon Community College, together with Buckland CE VC Primary School, John Blandy VC Primary School, Longcot & Fernham CE VC Primary School, Shrivenham CE VC Primary and Watchfield Primary School.

We will work together to enhance the education of our students across all key stages from Reception through to the 6th Form. Here is our Vision Statement:

The Faringdon Academy of Schools will create a seamless educational experience for our students across all key stages to develop responsible, capable and confident young people who are active citizens in the 21st Century. We will achieve outstanding progression and maximise pupil achievement in all Academy schools through a rich and motivating curriculum. The Academy will be recognized by our staff, parents and the local community as providers of a safe, creative and ethical environment reinforced by a vibrant Community Dimension. Overall, we will ensure that the Academy proactively adds value to each partner school so that the sum is always greater than the individual parts.
