Boarding in the Sixth Form

Accommodation that provides a welcoming, safe and independent boarding experience

Sixth Form Boarding School

Once your place in the Sixth Form is confirmed, a boarding house place can be reserved for the first year, or, if the host family option is chosen, we will provide detailed information on specific families and arrange visits where practical, so that you and your parents can make an informed choice. Please note, that although on enrolment, it is possible to express a preference for a single or a shared room but we cannot guarantee a particular house.

We have two boarding houses for students joining us in the Lower Sixth: Islip House and St. Aldates. Both houses provide an excellent boarding experience. Most of our boarders in the Lower Sixth live in Islip House. This is our brand new boarding house which provides a modern, welcoming and comfortable place for our students to live in – literally across the road from 333, our Sixth Form teaching site. Our other main boarding house, St. Aldates is located in the city centre.


Islip House

A new, purpose-built building for 60 students.


St. Aldates House

All single room en-suite in the centre of Oxford.

Family Boarding

Many students at d’Overbroeck’s, both from the UK and abroad, live with host families for all or part of the time they are studying with us. These families are carefully selected; we know how important where students live is to the overall experience of being at a school, particularly if they are studying a long way from home.
