“Non scholae, sed vitae discimus”
English: We Learn Not For School But For Life
Oswestry School is a proven pathway to UK universities: 45% of overseas pupils go on to Russell Group universities
Pastoral Care & Boarding
Boarders live on the campus; there are no exeat weekends and boarders can (for an extra charge) stay in school during the half term breaks. Boarders share two, three or four bedded rooms; Sixth Form boarders occupy twin rooms. There is a full programme of clubs, supervised homework sessions and activities after school and at weekends.
Extra-curricular & Personal Development
Oswestry School prides itself on the ability to nurture each individual child to enable them to achieve their academic potential, but the school is about so much more than just academic study. Developing knowledgeable, independent, confident teenagers who leave school with the skills to succeed at their chosen university or foundation course is the school’s aim. Sports, music, drama, art, design and technology, debating, the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Young Enterprise, and community service are just a few of the many extracurricular options on offer at Oswestry School.
