Welcome to d'Overbroeck's!

d’Overbroeck’s is a leading independent day and boarding school in Oxford, UK. We teach students aged 11-18 across our three school sites: Years 7-11, The International School, and the Sixth Form 

We are consistently ranked among the top schools in the UK for academic progress and we achieve this by encouraging our students to think strategically, analytically, creatively and imaginatively. Here students will find an intellectually challenging and inspiring environment wherein they receive expert guidance on how to make the most of their experience with us considering their long-term goals.  

We prioritise excellence throughout every area of school life, promoting a love of learning far beyond just the acquisition of knowledge, and we ensure that each student achieves their personal best. 

But we also ensure that on the way to achieving their best, students are having fun and enjoying their time with us. We believe that happiness and laughter bring education to life, and we strive to bring this into the classroom every day. Our students thrive on this approach, and it makes for a very enjoyable learning experience for all. 

Our school structure enables students to benefit from everything a modern school has to offer, whilst also learning in specific environments tailored to their studies and age group. Students can take part in whole-school productions, concerts, co-curricular activities and academic programmes. They can access a range of specialist facilities both onsite, including our new Arts Centre, and further afield, such as the University of Oxford’s sport facilities. At the same time, each of our three sites offer a unique and supportive atmosphere in which students can flourish. A d’Overbroeck’s education sets students up for life as resilient, well-rounded individuals ready to thrive in their university or professional lives.

What is #metacognition?

Metacognition enables students to understand themselves better as learners. Often decribed as ‘learning to learn’, it is therefore an essential skill for life-long learning.

The Education Endowment Foundation website states, “Metacognition and ...self-regulation approaches to teaching support pupils to think about their own learning more explicitly, often by teaching them specific strategies for planning, monitoring, and evaluating their learning.”

STORY UPDATE:
Further to her wins at the World Acrobatic Gymnastics competition earlier this year (see this article on our blog: https://www.doverbroecks.com/news/student-wins-world-acro-gymnastics-championship/ ) , we have received the fantastic news from Natasha that her dream has come true. ...She has been given a contract with Cirque du Soleil and will be performing with them in their new show 'O' in Las Vegas, starting in March 2023. There will be four months of training before the show.

d'Overbroeck's Head of Sports and Co-curricular Jonathan Richards said, "I am so pleased, what an achievement. Natasha cited this as an aspiration in her scholarship interview with us three years ago and it's already a reality: phenomenal. It's a testament to her hard work and dedication."
