Students from the Stretton Handley Church of England Primary School have enjoyed a ‘once in a lifetime’ trip after winning a national competition.

The pupils were taken to the House of Lords and enjoyed tea with the Bishop of Oxford and the Chair of the Board of Education.

The trip was their reward for winning the national MyCOfESchool competition, which launched last June.

The contest asked pupils to produce a three minute film celebrating what their school meant to them.

Senior Teacher Natasha Knight said: “The Christian ethos is at the very heart of our school at Stretton Handley.

“In the video the children wanted to show how Christian values weave through our daily lives and why this makes our school a really great place to live, laugh and have fun.”

Also praising the school’s students, the Bishop of Oxford said: “My congratulations to the children for their hard work and imagination creating their entries.”
