Regular rivals include Stowe, Warwick, Marlborough and Wellington and competition is taken seriously. Staff use iPads to record games for post-match analysis. Lots of rehearsal rooms support a busy performance schedule and there’s the added bonus of a school radio station, run by pupils.

What the school says...

Bloxham School is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school for students aged 11-18. Situated in the beautiful Oxfordshire village of Bloxham, the school is only three miles away from the M40 London to Birmingham motorway. Our students enjoy superb facilities for academic work, sport, technology and the arts on a modern, single-site campus.

With around 400 students, Bloxham is small enough to ensure that each student receives individual attention, yet large enough to offer every opportunity a school twice its size could deliver. Our flexible approach to boarding responds to the demands of modern family living with all our students, Boarders and Day Boarders alike, being allocated to one of Bloxhams six senior Houses. The Houses are tight-knit communities of their own, providing a friendly environment where students feel welcome and secure. They celebrate the diversity of our community and are instrumental in developing confident and caring young people who have the knowledge and qualifications to go on to succeed in their chosen path.

Dont forget to take a look at our website for further information on what a Bloxham education can offer you and your family.

Special Education Needs

Bloxham School runs a special three-year course for up to six dyslexic pupils each year from Year 9 to the GCSE year. This course, which replaces modern foreign languages on the timetable, was opened in 1985. For entry, pupils should have a WISC or BAS combined score of 120 or more. After-school tuition is also available for dyslexic pupils in Years 7 and 8, and for dyslexic pupils in Years 9 to 11 who are not on the course. Because the course has for so many years drawn high-achieving pupils to the school, dyslexia has a high standing in the school community. The course is taught by Mr Hugh Alexander (Cantab) AMBDA, and after-school tuition is by Mrs Alison McLellan, MA (Cantab). Nov 09.
