Oxley Park Primary School opened in September 2005 to serve the catchment area of Oxley Park and North Kingsmead. South Kingsmead is in the defined area for Tattenhoe Park Primary School. The school is built to the latest DCFS standards, maximizing the potential as a learning environment for pupils, staff and the community. The building is designed over two levels with Foundation and Key Stage 1 on the ground floor and Key Stage 2 on the top.
