The Oxford Trust
Encouraging the pursuit of science and enterprise
Welcome to our review for April 2019 to March 2020. Overall, it’s been an exciting and challenging year for the Trust with the opening of our new Science Oxford Centre and Wood Centre for Innovation at Stansfeld Park in Headington and we have many successes to share.
Science Oxford Centre
This is the UK’s first indoor-outdoor science education centre specifically for early years and primary-aged children their teachers and families to provide quality experiential hands-on science. The centre is open to schools during the week and for Family Open Days every other Saturday.
Wood Centre for Innovation
The Wood Centre for Innovation (WCFI) in Headington is a hub for science and tech start-ups and grow-on businesses as well as ecosystem-supporting organisations. We offer office space, technical workshops and R&D labs, meeting facilities, and sector-specific business support. Watch our latest video.
We are reliant on the generosity of individuals, business and foundations that like what we do – inspire young people to become passionate about science and support the next generation of innovators and entrepreneurs. You can help us in several ways.
