Shaping lives and serving communities
The Oxford Diocesan Board of Education (ODBE) provides high-quality, bespoke support to over 300 schools and academies throughout the Diocese of Oxford, serving almost all of our Church schools and a growing number of Multi-Academy Trusts (MATs), stand-alone academies and other schools.
What do we do?
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. They 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.
