Southwark Diocesan Board of Education

I have pleasure in welcoming you to our Southwark Diocesan Board of Education website.

The Southwark Diocesan Board of Education is here to support leaders, chaplains, governors, and educationalists in order that together we can offer better life chances to the pupils and students in our care. We are committed to 'Developing Church of England Education' and proud of our achievements to date.


Vision  -  Developing Church of England Education

  • To enable the mission of God through the work of the Board;
  • To be a high performing Diocesan Board promoting excellence in education both locally and nationally;
  • To develop and grow highly effective, inclusive Church of England schools rooted in Christian values;
  • To celebrate and share the richness, quality and successes of our schools and chaplaincies;
  • To offer exemplary service to our schools and chaplaincies.

 I hope you find this website a useful source of information and resource.
