The Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST) is a family of 32 primary schools across Oxfordshire and Berkshire, ranging from small rural infant schools to large city primaries, and including faith and non-faith schools.
We have several exciting teaching opportunities available from September 2018 at Wheatley CE Primary School, and we’re looking for experienced teachers who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of the children they teach.
About us: what makes working in an ODST school different?
At the heart of our vision is our belief in educational excellence, and with our roots in the Diocese of Oxford we have a strong, established support framework. Our people are passionate about providing the best educational experience possible, and our schools are places where children develop and thrive intellectually, socially, culturally and spiritually.
ODST supports schools so that school staff can concentrate on continuing to deliver the highest standards of teaching and care to all pupils. We offer a regular programme of CPD for our teachers to upskill and share their knowledge, experience and practice, and local hubs enable school-to-school support. We also provide the working conditions our teachers need to give their best as they serve the pupils in their care.
Don’t just take our word for it though…
