Welcome to the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust

I’m delighted to welcome you to the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST.) The Trust was founded in 2012 from a commitment to excellent education for academies in the Oxford Diocese. ODST has now grown into a large family serving over 3500 pupils and their families and communities.

We support schools right across the diocese, which covers Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Milton Keynes. An ODST school is a special place, which values its individual identity and serves its local community. We want
every person in our schools to know that are uniquely valuable.

We believe in the transformational power of human relationships. By building effective relationships between our schools in hubs and by encouraging our schools also to play their fullest part in the existing networks to which they belong, we believe that we can work collaboratively to raise attainment and ensure schools get better together. 

In the same way that we are committed to the highest professional standards from our staff, we ensure that all our schools have high aspirations for their pupils, not just in the key curriculum areas but in those wider aspects of education that ensure our young people leave school fit to be caring and effective citizens in the world of tomorrow.

ODST is a place where all are welcome; for both CofE schools and community schools, for staff and pupils of all faiths and none, where academic excellence abounds and where pupils and staff are enabled, valued and encouraged to become outward looking, resilient learners and professionals.
