Oxfordshire, United Kingdom
d’Overbroeck’s is a co-educational independent day and boarding school in Oxford for students aged 11 – 18. The school roll currently stands at around 670, and this is set to grow in the coming years.
d’Overbroeck’s consists of three sections:
Years 7-11 – 200 students; all day students. Domestic only. Based at Leckford Place, OX2 6HX.
Sixth Form – 370 students; a mixture of day and boarding. Domestic and international. Based at a purpose-built site at 333 Banbury Road that opened in September 2017.
The International School – around 100 international students who are all boarders, across years 9-11, with plans to expand into years 7 and 8. The move into the Swan Building in September 2017 has provided considerably more space and greatly improved facilities, including laboratories and an art room.
All in all, this is a busy and happy educational environment in which staff and students enjoy positive relationships based on mutual respect and a shared sense of purpose. As our most recent ISI inspection report puts it:
‘A defining characteristic of d’Overbroeck’s is its close-knit, informal atmosphere within which students grow in confidence, self-esteem, respect for themselves and for others. Students are very supportive of each other and behaviour throughout is excellent, exemplified in considerate, warm relationships.
