The school is presently a Voluntary Controlled school and they are consulting on a proposal that they become a Voluntary Aided school. If agreed the main changes would be that the board becomes the employer of the school's staff, increased control over their admissions and the Oxford Diocese became responsible for any on-going and future capital works at the school.


The Leader AGREED to the proposal by the governing board of Whaddon Church of England (CE) School and the Oxford Diocesan Board that the school changes its status to become a Voluntary Aided school. The school is presently a Voluntary Controlled school. The school undertook a public consultation on the proposed change and then held a representation period for people to comment on the proposal and there was overwhelming support for the proposed change.
