Local Academy Board
Tyndale Community School is run by Chapel St Community Schools Trust in partnership with Oxford Community Church.
“The right school can transform a child’s life and help them achieve things they may never have imagined. Through the free schools programme, it is now much easier for talented and committed teachers, charities, parents and education experts to open schools to address real demand within an area.”
Department for Education
The school is governed by a board of governors combining local parents, teachers, business people and community leaders. Working with many other volunteers, the governors’ aim is to develop a school that meets therussel needs of local families, encourages the aspirations and attainment of local children and enables the whole community to invest in future generations.
