Best School in Essex for 11+ Examination Results

The success rate for pupils gaining places in selective state and independent schools is unrivalled in the area. This year is no exception with the majority passing the 11+ going onto our highly sought after local Grammar schools and securing external scholarships. We understand that such places are not suitable for all pupils and our regular tracking and monitoring enables us to support all pupils to the journey to success. As we are a non-selective school, these results will vary from cohort to cohort each year. View our leavers’ destinations here. Find out how we prepare children for the 11-plus exam here.

Oxford House teachers pride themselves in producing highly confident and articulate children.  “The quality of teaching and learning is outstanding” SIS Report 2016.
