About the school

The school is housed in buildings just north of the city centre with a third site in a stunning new building Sixth Form building in Summertown that has just been completed over the last few months, ready for the September term. It’s absolutely state-of-the-art – part Victorian villa, part 21st century glass and concrete. The old Sixth Form building (now used for overseas students) was one of those typical red brick mansions on the Banbury Road, and no longer big enough to house a Sixth Form that has expanded from a mere handful in 1977 to the 260 Sixth Form pupils it has today.

Let us identify a number of school options for your children

  • We will help you to identify your family priorities and find the best potential schools fit.
  • We will approach those schools on your behalf
  • We work with you through the full process, help with admission procedures and stay with you until your children finish their boarding school education.

A levels at the Sixth Form

Our teaching style is predicated on highly interactive classes in which students are actively engaged throughout. Our maximum class size in the Sixth Form is 10 – except in science subjects, where the maximum is 8.

Working with relatively small groups means that we can teach and run our classes in the way that we like to. We want to be able to teach to each individual student in the class; we want to encourage questioning, debate and evaluative, critical thinking; and we want students to engage actively with the material, to hear, and to offer, alternative points of view.
