What we do
The aim of the partnership is to raise educational aspirations across the OX14 postcode by providing opportunities for students and staff to be challenged, inspired and learn from each other. A range of extracurricular activities and events will encourage collaboration between the schools as well as providing opportunities for widening horizons.
The Partnership will look to work alongside local organisations to provide opportunities for students across the schools. Examples include The Oxfordshire Academy of Broadcast journalism which will run media workshops. Workshops and guest speakers in a variety of areas will allow students to experience a wide range of topics. Plans are also being made for opportunities in sport, music, languages and the Arts as well as teacher networks and CPD opportunities for staff and Higher Education support for students.
Mental Health and wellbeing will be at the heart of the partnership with workshops, speakers and events to support the whole community. Plans for a supportive youth space are also being explored. At a time when young people and teachers have been isolated, overwhelmed and experienced great challenges, a partnership with clear aims and commitments can achieve a real sense of belonging, sustainability and civic pride.
