We would be delighted to invite you to our wonderful school and share with you what makes Oxford House School the best educational start you can give your child.


Empowering learning through technology

Our air conditioned ICT suite and Music Lab comprises of electronic keyboards and computers allows children to develop their skills at their own pace. Our curriculum uses a wide variety of programmes including Scratch and Bee-Bot for programming and coding.

Every pupil in Year 3 and above receives their own personal laptop. This opens up additional methods of teaching, assessment and feedback, and provides every pupil with greater ownership for their learning. It engages pupils with the technology they are likely to use in the future at secondary school or university. Pupils are provided with a Microsoft 365 account, allowing them to access software packages such as Teams, Word and PowerPoint for the duration of their time at Oxford House School.


Promoting physical well-being

At Oxford House, physical education is a cornerstone of our pupils' well-being. Each pupil receives a one-hour on-site PE lesson led by our specialist teacher. Additionally, from Year 1 onwards, our pupils actively participate in various sports, such as football, tag rugby, hockey, athletics, cricket, and rounders, held at the nearby Colchester Royal Grammar School playing fields, just a 5-minute walk away.

Starting from Year 2, pupils also engage in weekly swimming lessons. Our younger pupils benefit from one-on-one instruction at Leisure World teaching pool, while older, more advanced swimmers utilise the Garrison Olympic-sized swimming pool. Both facilities are safe, spacious, and well-maintained, ensuring an optimal learning environment. To facilitate transportation, our bus service ensures seamless travel to and from these venues.


Music, theatre, and festive traditions at our school

Pupils enjoy weekly music lessons in our beautiful Music Room, which houses a grand piano.

We are fortunate to provide our pupils with the opportunity to express themselves creatively on stage at a local renowned theatre, this is a long tradition established by the original founders of the school and is always eagerly attended by parents, family and friends.

During the Christmas period, lower school and upper school pupils participate in the annual carol concert at a venue in the town centre. These are beautiful buildings with amazing acoustics which heighten the pupil’s singing voices resulting in an emotional experience.

An environment where every child can be challenged and inspired
