Community development

Community hubs

We are committed to supporting our schools to develop and maintain strong, trusting relationships with their communities. School facilities can be an excellent community asset, and we support our schools to open their facilities to the community. Several of our schools have repurposed surplus space such as former caretakers’ bungalows, and re-opened previously closed youth and community centres, which now serve as community hubs.

All our community hubs are different as they are designed with and by children, young people and local communities to create positive, sustainable change on a neighbourhood level. Community hubs can offer our children and young people opportunities to provide service to others and develop their own leadership, provide support to families to enable them and their children to thrive, and offer space for connection, opportunity, and celebration.

Some example projects

YouthWorks at Marsden Heights

Offers an award-winning youth-led community offer including Positive Voices, a project run by young people who participate in community-focused social action on a local, national, and global level.

Hill View Community Hub

Hosts a weekly group run by parents, for parents, of children with additional support needs and disabilities. The group is open to parents in Banbury who would like to connect with other parents.

Marlborough Community Hub

Offers a community allotment which has been designed and developed by children from two schools in the community; Marlborough Road Primary Academy and Mill Green Special School. Local families can hire a plot on the allotment for a minimal charge to grow their own food.
