Oakham is an exciting, challenging and supportive place to live and work, thanks to our superb facilities, our experienced and enthusiastic staff and the wealth of activities we offer.

We are located in the heart of safe, rural England, in the historic market town of Oakham, with excellent road and rail links to London and to London Stansted and Birmingham Airports.  Whilst we treasure our 400-year heritage, we pride ourselves on our forward-thinking attitude to education.

Our aim is to provide our pupils with a world-class education to prepare them for life on the global stage. We seek to offer the highest standards of teaching and learning, so that all pupils fulfil their academic potential.

We have flourishing Art, Design Technology, Drama, and Music Departments and an enviable reputation for excellent coaching and mentoring in a variety of sports. Beyond the classroom, we offer many opportunities for pupils to develop into well-rounded individuals through an extensive activities and Community Action programme.

Oakham is a caring community where we nurture yet challenge our pupils and teach them how to be independent, thoughtful and responsible young adults, who are ready to take on the challenges of life beyond School.
