West Oxfordshire Learning Partnership

The West Oxfordshire Learning Partnership (WOLP) comprises the secondary schools in West Oxfordshire, and Abingdon and Witney College. We work collaboratively to share and learn from each other’s practice in relation to teaching and learning and curriculum development, for example, and in some cases share teachers. As a partnership we have developed middle and aspirant senior leadership programmes, including National Professional Qualifications, and run a series of professional development activities that can be accessed by teachers across the partnership. We run some joint professional development days making cost-effective use of training providers, and our collaborative professional development also includes our teaching assistant, technical and administrative teams. WOLP schools offer initial teacher training in conjunction with the Oxfordshire Training Schools Association and the University of Oxford Department of Education.

WOLP worked together to establish a skills centre in an industrial unit in Witney, providing practical training and qualifications in building trades. Small groups of Key Stage 4 pupils from across the Partnership have benefited from this provision, which is administered by Abingdon and Witney College.

The secondary schools in WOLP work together to implement ‘In Year Fair Access’ protocols and oversee the delegation of funding to support vulnerable pupils at risk of exclusion and to support schools receiving excluded pupils
