The NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR PRIMARY EDUCATION is a membership partnership of teachers, governors, parents, education officers and advisers, all of whom care about the learning and welfare of children from birth to thirteen and above, both at home and in school.

Oxfordshire is the largest branch of the national association and is best known for its annual Festival of Voices which has grown from just two concerts in Oxford Town Hall in 1984, via eight years in Nicholas Tingewick Hall at the JR Hospital, to a week of five performances in the amazingly beautiful Dorchester Abbey, where it has been since 1993.
