Welcome to The International School at d’Overbroeck’s. In this part of the school, we will help you to prepare for academic and social success in the British education system. In a small, caring atmosphere, our specialist teachers will help you to improve your spoken and written English and teach you a full range of academic subjects.
If you are 15-16 years old you can join our one year GCSE programme which will prepare you for success at A Level or IB, either carrying on at d’Overbroeck’s or at your choice of further school, and then on to university. If you are younger, you can join our two year GCSE programme. You can also join us for a shorter stay of one or two terms. Whichever course you join, we will help you achieve your full potential and move on to a bright future.
To parents, guardians and agents, I would like to say that we will send you regular updates regarding your child’s progress. We will get in touch to let you know about all their successes, not just problems. Please feel you can contact me any time to discuss anything or to ask questions.
Like the rest of d’Overbroeck’s we are more relaxed and informal than a traditional school. Students call their teachers by their first names, wear a “light touch” uniform and do not have to attend chapel or take part in traditional team games. However, the academic rigour of our courses and the high standards of pastoral care here are second to none. Additionally, students will benefit from living and studying in our wonderful facilities here in the centre of Oxford. Living in Oxford is an exciting experience and we will help you to get the most out of it, taking part in activities across the whole school with the British students and joining in the wider life of this world-famous university city.
You are welcome to visit any time and I look forward to meeting you and showing you the school.
Head of the International School
