Working in partnership with East Oxford Primary School

May 18, 2023

Oxford University has a duty to support the community in which it lives, and to work in partnership so that, together, we set collective ambitions for all our people.”
Professor Irene Tracey, Vice-Chancellor and Kellogg Fellow

Kellogg is delighted to have established a link partnership with East Oxford Primary School, which is located in the Cowley Road neighbourhood of the city. The purpose of the partnership is to introduce pupils to the University of Oxford and help them realise that universities are places that they can aspire to attend. The partnership has also been designed to support the continuing professional development of teaching staff.

Russell Kaye, East Oxford Primary School Headteacher, told us:

East Oxford Primary School is delighted to be working in partnership with Kellogg College. As the most linguistically diverse primary school in Oxford, the connection with the College with the highest number of international students is an excellent link. It means that our children are able to connect with the University of Oxford, its teaching, and its research, and be inspired for their own futures.”

Pupils came to Kellogg for an Enigma machine demonstration during Bletchley Park Week. They were joined by Professor Irene Tracey, Vice-Chancellor and Kellogg Fellow, she said:

I was delighted to attend Kellogg College in February and meet the school children from East Oxford Primary. Their enthusiasm was palpable as we all learnt about the Enigma machine and how it works. I was so impressed by how well the children listened and answered questions. It was so good to see such a great level of engagement between the school, teachers and Kellogg College. Keep up the great work and I look forward to further opportunities to engage with our local schools.”

Year 5 pupils recently joined us in the Hub for a talk on Shakespeare, given by Kellogg Fellow Dr Anna Beer. Their class teacher, Arran Johnson, told us:

It’s great that they have the chance to hear from experts on the subjects they’re learning about in the classroom. Being able to see behind the walls of an Oxford college is inspirational; many of the children wouldn’t have access to this otherwise.”
