Message from the Headteacher

John Mason School converted to an Academy from 1st February. We will continue to be known as John Mason School but are now funded directly by the Department for Education, with the John Mason Academy Trust established to take on responsibility for running the school. The current school governors have  formed the new trust board and reaffirmed our commitment to provide the very best education for all children in Abingdon and surrounding areas, working in partnership with the other schools, college and wider community. We will continue to work with Oxfordshire County Council in particular for specialist services, where appropriate. Conversion to an Academy will not have any effect on those children applying for admission in September 2014.
This is an exciting time in the school's history. As we prepare to rise to the challenges and seize the opportunities ahead in our progress to be an outstanding school, some new governors will be recruited and we are particularly keen to hear from parents, friends or family who have skills in finance, business management or legal experience: please write to the Chair of Governors, Paul Brooks, at the school address for enquiries, or email us at

High quality, inclusive education is at the heart of the new Academy and our work across the community. We wish to thank our staff, students and their families for your support and commitment to the school and in all that we achieve together.
