More on Education

To read our Diocesan Director of Education's measured and helpful response to the Bishop of Oxford's recent remarks on church schools, see

To understand the Bishop's advice, it is necessary to grasp that while a small number (less than a third) of all church schools are voluntary aided and therefore eligible to set their own admissions policy, many of these are secondary schools and their policies have a very influential effect on educational opportunity in the areas they serve. (See my post  22nd April Education; the Bishop of Oxford's Advice on Church Schools) for earlier comment and for a link to the Bishop of Oxford's own words on the matter.)
