Joining ODST as an NQT


Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST) is a thriving Multi-Academy Trust, serving nearly 7000 pupils within our family of 36 distinctive primary, infant, junior and middle schools.

We are a values-led organisation, and our people are passionate about providing the best educational experience possible. Our schools are places where children develop and thrive intellectually, socially, culturally and spiritually. 

Each school has its own unique identity, but all share a commitment to excellence for the children in their care.

ODST schools are situated in five hubs across Oxfordshire and Berkshire.  Our hub structure supports strong local school-to-school collaboration and opportunities for professional development. View schools and hubs on a map.

Support to help you focus on what matters most

ODST offers you the supportive environment you need, to enable you to provide children with the high-quality education they deserve.

Our termly NQT network meetings will give you the chance to meet with NQTs from other schools in the Trust, discuss best practice and gain support from our experienced team of school advisers. Alongside this we offer an online forum to chat and share experiences with your fellow NQTs.

All ODST teachers also benefit from a wide range of professional development opportunities, for example:

  • Mathematics and English Subject Learning Networks
  • Early Years Network
  • Moderation Meetings
  • Middle Leadership Development Programme
  • CPD events covering a wide variety of topics eg PSHE, writing, tracking data.

We will post vacancies in our schools on the ODST vacancies site when they arise.
