d’Overbroeck’s is a leading UK co-educational independent day and boarding school located near to the centre of Oxford, well known for their encouraging and supportive approach as well as for excellent academic results and outstanding pastoral care. Teaching is in small classes so every student can be heard and can participate in lessons and ask questions.  



d-Overbroeck’s offer A levels in the Sixth Form and IGCSE and pre-IGCSE programmes at the International School. The Sixth Form has an even split of UK to international students. Classes are small with highly interactive and motivating teaching. The teaching is designed to help students achieve the best grades but also develop critical thinking skills which are vital for university success.  


Each Sixth Form student has a Director of Studies who monitors their progress and provides guidance including one-to-one advice on the university application process. They also run specialist programmes for students wanting to apply for Oxford and Cambridge universities, for Law or Medicine or to study in the USA.  


Students in Years 10 and 11 at the International School can study six to eight IGCSEs and they offer a pre-IGCSE course in Year 9 (taking students from age 13).  One or two-term UK Study Abroad options are also available. 


The flexibility of the programmes d’Overbroeck’s offer allows them to prepare students for their next step in education, wherever that may be. 



A large network of staff is available at all times to support students, including their Director of Studies (Sixth Form) or Form Tutor (International School), boarding house staff, a school nurse and school counsellors. The Personal Development programme delivers a series of talks and activities aimed at supporting the emotional growth and wellbeing of the students. 



Around half of the Sixth Form students and almost all International School students are boarders and all the boarding houses have resident House Parents who help to foster a strong community amongst the students living in their house. 



Students benefit from a superb programme of sports, activities and visits, in which they join with students from across the school. There is an excellent enrichment and cultural programme embedded within the timetable.
