The Oxford Education Deanery is a partnership between the University of Oxford and local schools.  Full membership is open to all secondary schools that are part of the Oxford Internship Scheme (our PGCE programme) and that have appointed a Research Champion, but all the materials on this website are freely available to everyone.

The Deanery’s aim is to improve outcomes for local young people by supporting their teachers’ professional learning. This means giving local teachers easy access to relevant, high-quality research, supporting them in conducting their own research and engaging in joint projects through which we can learn from one another.


Teachers in local schools that are members of the Oxford Education Deanery can access a wide range of research-based activities and opportunities, including the Enhanced Masters in Learning and Teaching, the NQT Induction Programme and the Effective Evaluation Programme.
