Bloxham School is an independent, co-educational boarding and day school for boys and girls aged 11 to 18 situated in north Oxfordshire.
We are proud to boast state-of-the-art facilities for academic work, sport, technology and the arts on a modern, single-site campus. With around 440 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 classified as either boarders, day boarders or day students.
Located in the heart of the beautiful Oxfordshire village of Bloxham, Bloxham School is only three miles away from the M40 London to Birmingham motorway. Banbury, just two miles away, has excellent rail connections, with London around 50 minutes by train. We are close to the major London airports as well as to Birmingham International Airport.
Bloxham is part of the Woodard Corporation and is a member of the HMC group, which is among the elite independent schools in the UK.
“Successfully combines academic challenge with plenty of sport, service and practical life skills. A perfect environment for happy all-rounders” Good Schools Guide.
The ethos and purpose of Bloxham is encapsulated in our Mission Statement:
“Bloxham is a small school with big ambitions and a strong ethos which aims to prepare young people with the skills they need to successfully take their place as global citizens in an ever-changing world. At Bloxham, the individual matters and the expectations are that every child will flourish.”
A Bloxham education aims to develop students by providing them with enriching educational experiences that help them to mature intellectually, physically, emotionally and spiritually. A balanced curriculum encourages the students to learn to become leaders, develop resilience, become independent and creative thinkers, and foster passions, as well as to be empathetic and compassionate to others. Students will develop well thought-out core values, be givers rather than just takers, and will achieve their potential in public examinations to open the doors of opportunity beyond the school gates.
