The Oxford House approach

Our dedicated teachers are not only educators but also cultivators of confident young individuals. This commitment to nurturing self-assuredness and effective communication is reflected in our consistently outstanding teaching quality, as affirmed in the SIS Report of 2016. We set exceptionally high standards for our pupils, aiming not only for academic excellence but also for a holistic education that encompasses various aspects of personal and intellectual growth.

Our approach is centred on empowering every child to excel in all facets of their education. We believe in encouraging and fostering a comprehensive educational experience that goes beyond textbooks and classrooms. Through this, we aim to equip our pupils with the skills, knowledge, and confidence needed to thrive not only academically but also in all aspects of life. We are committed to cultivating well-rounded individuals who are fully prepared to face the challenges and opportunities of the future.


A strong start for lifelong learning

Our Early Years Foundation Stage is marked by its outstanding overall effectiveness. Children within this stage exhibit remarkable progress in their learning journey, consistently achieving high standards of work.

As a result of this strong foundation, they are well-prepared to transition into Key Stage I, ensuring a seamless and successful continuation of their educational development.

“The learning at the school is unmatched while also being enjoyable to the children. The variety of skills learnt will take the children far past primary school.”

Assessing progress and shaping success

Pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 regularly take GL Progress Tests in English and Mathematics. These standardised assessments, administered by GL Assessment, help us evaluate individual pupil performance, measuring their progress and proficiency in these core subjects.

These assessments go beyond our school, helping us assess each pupil's performance in the context of national benchmarks. By comparing to these standards, we gain valuable insights into strengths and areas for improvement, shaping our instructional strategies to meet the unique needs of every Year 1 to Year 6 student.

Our Year 2 and Year 6 pupils’ results in the GL Progress Tests for the Academic Year 2022-2023 are summarised in the table below.

Exceptional pathways

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.
