Oakham is a boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 10 to 18, offering a choice of IB or A-levels in the sixth form. We are one of the UK's top IB schools and we achieve impressive academic results at A-level and GCSE. 

The pursuit of academic excellence is at the heart of everything we do. We aim to offer the highest standards of teaching and learning, so that all pupils fulfil their academic potential. Our ambition is that our pupils not only perform well in their exams, but that they develop an intellectual curiosity that will cultivate a lifelong love of learning.

We provide pupils with a range of opportunities beyond the classroom to develop and pursue physical and mental well-being, to expand their love and interest in creative arts and sport and to exercise innovation, teamwork and leadership skills. Service to others is something that each and every one of our pupils comes to understand and value. 

All of this is underpinned by outstanding pastoral care and a culture of mutual respect that takes the highest priority.
