Oakham is a friendly, unpretentious and forward thinking school that achieves impressive academic results. It is a school with high expectations and achievements across the board. For all-rounders who like rolling their sleeves up and throwing themselves into a staggering range of activities it’s a very exciting place to be.
Oakham is one of the UK’s leading IB school and also offers AS/A2 level courses. The school has considerable experience caring for girls and boys whose parents are based overseas so international students are well integrated and close communication between home and school is encouraged.
Every student joins a house with a Housemaster or mistress and these have a community within them, and ‘home at school’ feel. Additionally, a personal tutor provides support and monitors progress both in effort and achievement.
The school is set in attractive surroundings around the town centre and the teaching areas are equipped to a high standard. Facilities include one of the best school libraries in the country, extensive science laboratories, ICT (computing) and Art and Design centres.
