Professional Development in Oxford
St Clare’s has been running IB Diploma teacher workshops in cooperation with the IB since 2002.
Our workshops are small and informal. Our preferred group size is 12 with an absolute maximum of 15 participants, and we usually run no more than four subjects at any one time. This ensures that participants can easily share ideas within their workshop groups.
Social activities are an integral to our workshop events. Our popular programme is designed to ensure that participants can make the most of their time in the beautiful, historic, City of Oxford.
Our workshops include:
- all lunches and refreshments
- evening meals
- a guided walking tour of Oxford’s historic city centre
- a tour of the IB College
- workshop dinner, barbecue, buffet or curry night
- official IB certification

Oxford is connected to London, the M25 and the Midlands by the M40 motorway. Come off the M40 at junction 8 (A40) or junction 9 (A34) to link directly to the Oxford ring road. The ring road provides direct access to the south and west via the A34. Approach the city from the north. Take the Banbury Road south from the ring road. Pass the shops of Summertown until you reach the traffic light junction at Marston Ferry Road. The Banbury Road campus is first right on the corner of Lathbury Road at 139 Banbury Road. The Bardwell Road centre is further south. Continue down the Banbury Road and take a left turn into Bardwell Road. The reception is in no. 18 Bardwell Road.

Parking in the city centre is extremely limited and long stay visitors to Oxford arriving by car are recommended to use the city’s Park & Ride service. Fast and frequent bus services link car parks on the ring road with the city centre, seven days a week.

Take the No. 500 bus from the car park and ask for the St.Margaret’s Road bus stop. The bus service runs every 10-12 minutes.
