Top North Oxford Day And Boarding School - d’Overbroeck’s

North Oxford independent day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 11-19 offering students an active approach to learning through comprehensive academic and extracurricular programmes.

Details

Described as, “A place of energy and laughter” by The Good Schools Guide, d’Overbroeck’s is not just a school; it’s a place where boys and girls enjoy studying and willingly prepare for the next stage of their academic and personal lives.

Founded in 1977, it welcomes home students from age 11 and International boarders from age 14 for enrolment in the prestigious 1 or 2 year GCSE programme – where they prepare for A Levels or the IB Diploma. One, 2 or 3 term high school experience options are also available.

Supervised by encouraging teachers who make sure studies are engaging and enjoyable, it’s no surprise to know that d’Overbroeck’s students achieve high grades at GCSE and A level and are offered places in some of the UK’s top universities including Oxford, Cambridge and London School of Economics.

Aside from a small student-teacher ratio, students are also treated to personalised attention as they are assigned Personal Tutors who oversee their academic progress and help them stay happy and well both in and out of the classroom.

The extracurricular activities are second to none. In fact, the school boasts up to 30 clubs that ensure students broaden their education outside academics and offer something extra to universities and future employers. They are also great for socialising, staying healthy and de-stressing.

For those more serious about sports, there are competitive squads as well as strong partnerships with local teams. Arts students are well provided for and there are student exhibitions, drama and musical performances throughout the year as well as trips to external shows and events.

When it comes to boarding, the options are equally exciting as students can stay in one of the school’s own boarding houses or carefully selected host families; the latter a particularly interesting choice for International students wishing to experience local culture.

The most recent ISI (Independent Schools Inspection) report rated d’Overbroeck’s as “Excellent” in all the main categories.

All of this makes d’Overbroeck’s the perfect school for ambitious, able students looking for an education full of opportunities where they can develop both their personal and critical skills.
