Glory Farm School is situated to the north east side of Bicester, Oxfordshire and serves a late 1970’s, early 1980’s development of local authority and owner occupied housing, and is one of nine co-educational primary schools in the town.

Access to the school is via Hendon Place (a cul-de-sac), off Sunderland Drive. There is a large Recreation Ground to the north of the school, accessed via Sunderland Drive. The school occupies a safe and secure site shared with Bardwell Special School, The Cooper School (nearest secondary school), The Children’s Centre and Rainbow Playgroup.

Although some 15% of pupils live outside the catchment area, most come from the locality, which represents a broad cross section of society. The school is very popular, highly regarded, with an increasing number of pupils coming from one-parent families.

Bicester is an historic market town recorded in the Domesday Book and its history dates back more than a thousand years to Saxon times. It is a busy market town and now home to Bicester Village – the factory designer outlet shopping village.

The historic shopping streets, particularly Sheep Street and Market Square, have a wide range of local and national shops together with cafés, pubs and restaurants. Sheep Street is now pedestrianised with car parks nearby. Weekly markets take place on Fridays in the town centre along with a Farmers’ Market on the second Thursday of each month.
