Head PhotoPadworth College was founded in 1963 by Oxford University tutor, Peter Fison, and a group of Oxford dons whose vision was to bring Oxford's educational philosophy of tutorial teaching to school-level education. Individuality is celebrated through our highly differentiated learning approach, small informal classes and a personal, first name basis. Each student follows his or her own individual and unique programme of learning that reflects career aspirations, as well as personal interests and ability. Our approach to learning is enquiry-based and interactive - "You are you and you are unique. If you follow in the footprint of others, you won't make any of your own."

Students at Padworth embrace the mind-set of global citizenship. Our student body, representing approximately 30 different nationalities, celebrates cultural diversity. Our boarding, with its strong focus on pastoral care and student welfare, ensures there is a balance of academic study alongside recreational and social activities. We are located close to London and Heathrow International Airport, in an historic country estate in the middle of a picturesque and safe environment.

"I believe education is about providing opportunities to get the best out of young people. There is not a day that goes by when I don't learn something new. At Padworth individuals matter: by opening your eyes and learning from others you can understand yourself better and reach your potential. Are you Padworth? Then, I invite you to join us on your journey to achieve your dreams."
