Head PhotoOakham is a boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 10 to 18, offering a choice of A-levels or IB in the Sixth Form.

Friendly and unpretentious, Oakham achieves impressive academic results at A-level and GCSE and we are one of the UK's Top IB schools. Our strength lies in challenging every individual to exceed his or her expectations through encouragement, pastoral support and a diversity of opportunity. Our Learning Habits at Oakham initiative develops lifelong learning skills and underpins all our teaching. Every pupil is valued and motivated to work hard. Academic facilities include a new Social Sciences Faculty, new Science and Design Technology centres, an art and design centre, an art gallery, one of the finest school libraries in the country, a theatre and a music school.

We have national reputations in Sport and Music. Drama and the Arts flourish. Our extensive activities programme includes voluntary action both locally and overseas. Oakhamians are warm and approachable but confident and determined young people. It is a very exciting place to be.


Our House system is central to daily life, and with close and supportive guidance, every pupil is valued and motivated. Communication between home and school is actively encouraged. Pupils regard their House as 'home' and their Housemaster or Housemistress as head of their school 'family'. A personal tutor supports each student and small tutorial groups meet regularly.


A spirit of energy and innovation shapes life at Oakham. Exposed to a wealth of opportunities and challenged to excel, students leave the School independent of mind and well equipped to face the future with confidence, enthusiasm and a lifelong appetite for learning.
