Periodic External Review by the Church of England


July 2022


In March of this year, Oak Hill underwent its six-yearly Periodic External Review (PER, formerly known as the Bishops’ Inspection) with the Church of England. The outcome of the review has now been published on the Church of England website.

We are very grateful to the reviewers for their preparation, visits, and subsequent report writing. We’re delighted that in their view “Oak Hill College occupies a unique position in ministerial training for the Church of England, providing high quality formation in the evangelical protestant tradition.”

The report outlines the areas covered by the review, making a series of commendations and helpful recommendations. We would be grateful for your prayers as we now set to work, reflecting on the report and considering how best to implement its recommendations.
