Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Faringdon Community College

We are an 11-18 co-educational secondary comprehensive school, but one which embraces the idea of lifelong learning and community education, hence the title 'Faringdon Community College' or FCC for short.


At our last OFSTED inspection in May 2008 we were rated as an ‘Outstanding School’. We are very proud to have achieved this rating and continually work to develop our standards of achievement: both in the classroom and for the wider development of our students. We are always looking for ways to improve and strengthen our position as one of the top secondary schools in Oxfordshire.

My priorities are simply these: excellent examination outcomes, impeccable behaviour, great teaching and the widest possible range of high quality extra-curricular experiences for all students. With a clear focus and lots of hard work, these things are all achievable and will deliver what I think most parents want: happy children who leave school with plenty of choices available to them and who are well-equipped to cope with the world outside.


I very much hope that you enjoy our website and find it both informative and helpful; and we look forward to seeing you at FCC.


Colin Proffitt, Headteacher
