Welcome to Futures Institute Banbury, a small school by design, located in a region that is home to world-famous employers at the leading edge of engineering and technology. As parents/carers, you will be looking to give your talented children the best chance to succeed in later life.

You live less than an hour away from the renowned Harwell Campus, which is home to around 200 science/research organisations and private companies, with thriving clusters already established in 5 Core Sectors:

  • Space and Satellite Applications
  • Life Sciences and Healthcare
  • Big Data and Supercomputing
  • Energy and Environment
  • Advanced Engineering and Materials

Come to study with us and you will have unparalleled access to a range of local employers through a wide and innovative range of curriculum links and projects.

Our goal is to become the premier educational provider in the wider region for those with a deep interest and aptitude in maths, technology and science and their application in the real world. We will equip your child with not only the academic qualifications needed to gain a foothold in the world of work, but also the “soft skills” that employers are increasingly demanding from their workforce. Our core projects, co-constructed with local employers, give the students the chance to work in teams, develop creativity and communicate with a range of audiences, whilst tackling real life problems.

Futures Institute operates in a different way to a conventional school. For example, we include core project lessons on our timetable that demand students are able to manage their own learning whilst developing essential employability skills. Our approach will suit those who are looking to take more responsibility for their learning; who are able to adapt and be resilient when faced when challenges; and who are keen to work in collaboration with others and prepare for the world of work.

If you have a child who is looking to push their own boundaries when it comes to maths, technology and science; who is interested in applying their learning in real life contexts; and who aspires to be one of the next generation of industrial leaders and pioneers we are the school for them.

We look forward to meeting you and supporting you in that journey.

Julia Ingham
Principal of Futures Institute Banbury
