The difference we make

At the Oxford Diocesan Board of Education (ODBE) we provide high quality bespoke support to over 300 schools and academies throughout the Diocese of Oxford. We are privileged to serve almost all the church schools in the diocese and provide services to schools in a growing number of Multi Academy Trusts (MATs), standalone academies and other schools.

The ODBE is committed to the education of the whole person to their fullest potential, to the development of moral and spiritual understanding, to the uniqueness of the individual and to the education of all within the maintained system. We work within statutory education on behalf of the Diocese of Oxford in developing a Christian vision of education, fulfilling this commitment to all schools through the provision of a comprehensive range of advice and support.
