 Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST) is a thriving Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), serving over 8,000 pupils within its growing family of 42 church and community schools across Oxfordshire and Berkshire.

ODST is the largest Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) in Oxfordshire, and in the top 1% for size, based on number of schools, in England. It was founded by the Diocese of Oxford in 2012, originally with 3 sponsored and 2 convertor schools. ODST currently consists of 42 schools across Oxfordshire, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, and Reading. We have significant primary expertise and capability, with all our schools being either primary, infant, junior or middle schools.

ODST schools are organised into five geographical hubs. This supports school-to-school collaboration and promotes professional development at school level, as well as supporting our vision for a community of schools that work together for the common good. Our schools have the freedom to serve their individual communities in the way they know best, with support from ODST to ensure they have what they need to deliver the best for their pupils.
