Didcot RUFC at GWP

A very big thank you to Didcot RUFC, for inviting us up to Boundary Park to watch the 1st XV Match against Littlemore on Saturday 21st October 2017. It was a gritty match, in blustery conditions and despite Didcot losing 10-29, it was very entertaining. Well done to all the players, coaches and volunteers involved.

Everyone is welcome to come and support our very local Rugby Club, on the touch line or even from the comfort of the Boundary Park Bar. The Didcot RUFC 1st XV’s next Home match is on Saturday 4th November 2017 vs. Bletchley.

Aureus Primary School

In September 2018, we will be opening our brand new Aureus Primary School, also on Great Western Park.

We will be opening with a Nursery Class, two Reception Classes and a mixed Year 1 and Year 2 class (if there is enough interest on the waiting list, we will consider opening with full Year 1 and Year 2 classes).

Further information about the school can be found on our website –

As you will probably be aware, our Primary School site is in the process of being built so we will be holding our Open Days at the Aureus Secondary School.  Once the site is accessible we will be able to show everyone around.
