What the school says...
Founded in 1407, Oswestry is one of Englands oldest schools. A combination of the Schools size and an impressive teacher/student ratio ensures high level of individual care and attention. All pupils, supported and encouraged by an excellent team of staff, are expected to make the most of their abilities. The size of the School helps us achieve our ethos and our pupils are bright, energetic, confident and, above all, happy. We are large enough to grant our pupils a feeling of independence and to house many superb facilities, but small enough for each pupil to be well known and make a significant contribution to the School, and to monitor and motivate pupils as they make academic and personal progress. We are extremely proud of the excellent academic results achieved given our non-selective admission process; A-levels over recent years have had a 97-100% pass rate and around 90% of GCSE grades were A-C. Sixth Form lessons are delivered in small groups allowing intensive support and pupils enjoy enormous success with their university applications with most going on to their first choice university. Destinations include Cambridge, Durham, Warwick, London School of Economics, University College London, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol and other top universities. Guidance on university applications is provided by the Head of Sixth Form, personal tutors and both Deputy Heads. Sixth Form pupils leave Oswestry School having learnt how to respect others as well as themselves and with the desire to fulfil their own individual potential. ...Read more
