Students and families often ask us why we’re different from other schools. The answer? It’s because we always focus on the individual in all aspects of school life. We stretch our students academically, but make sure they’re having fun at the same time. And most importantly, we’re preparing all our students for their next step by giving them independence, developing their skills beyond the curriculum and encouraging mutual respect between students and teachers.

d'Overbroeck's - Independent school in Oxford

d’Overbroeck’s was founded in 1977 by Malcolm van Biervliet, who taught at the school until 2007. We teach a wide and varied GCSE, IGCSE and A-Level curriculum to students from the UK and around the world. We truly are a global community and are committed to our core values:

  • A focus on the individual
  • Be your best and achieve academically
  • Future-focused to prepare all our students for their next step in education and the world of work
  • Fun and laughter – we believe education is better when you’re enjoying yourself
  • Non-traditional. It’s not about stuffy traditions, strict uniforms or sticking to the status quo. It’s about expressing yourself and achieving your ambitions
