Ethos & Aims

Shaping futures through tradition and excellence

We have a rich history of consistently upholding a strong academic excellence, character development, and a commitment to nurturing well-rounded pupils. Our primary aim is to provide a holistic education that empowers children with the knowledge, skills, and values they need to succeed in a rapidly evolving world.

With a legacy steeped in tradition and a vision for the future, Oxford House School continues to be a beacon of educational excellence, where pupils are encouraged to reach their full potential and make a positive impact on society.


The Oxford House School philosophy

Our core philosophy can be encapsulated in the Latin phrase "Labore Confecto Gaudentes," which translates to "Joy in Achievement." We firmly believe that education should not only be about reaching high standards but also about finding fulfillment and joy in the process of learning itself. Our school is dedicated to creating an atmosphere where pupils not only excel academically but also enjoy the journey of acquiring knowledge and skills.

One of our primary aims is to offer a nurturing and supportive environment, ensuring that your children feel happy, safe, and secure in their educational journey. We understand that a positive and secure foundation is crucial for their overall development and eventual success. By fostering an environment that combines high standards with the enjoyment of learning, we aim to prepare our pupils not just for academic accomplishments but also for a lifetime of curiosity, growth, and fulfilment.

Academic achievement and creative growth

We encourage high standards in behaviour and manners as well as in academic achievement. Our success rate for pupils gaining places in selective grammar and independent schools is unrivalled in the area and we are extremely proud of our pupils’ individual successes.

Our outstanding curriculum inspires and promotes success academically, while at the same time instilling a love for art, music, dance and drama in the hearts of all our children. These creative subjects are embedded into the curriculum and help pupils to not only develop problem-solving skills, but also to express their feelings and ideas, forming an essential part of their personal development.

Oxford House School teachers pride themselves on producing highly confident and articulate children both academically and creatively.

“The academic focus is married with a really lovely happy ethos and I see my own child growing on a daily basis.”
