1584 Society Virtual Cocktail Hour

The annual 1584 Society luncheon may have been cancelled this year, but the members found a way to come together through a virtual cocktail hour, hosted by our new 1584 Society President, Peter Lawson. An OO (‘60), former parent and trustee, Peter took over stewardship of Oakham’s giving society just before the pandemic struck, so this was his first event as the society president.

The staff in the Art department have been impressed by how innovative and resourceful all the pupils have been this term, sharing their experiences of lockdown and considering their own environment.

A new type of Classroom

For a long time, Oakham has used the phrase ‘Learning isn’t limited to the classroom’.  Never before has this been truer than this term.  With classrooms closed and learning taking place at home – the kitchen table, or pupils’ studies or bedrooms, have replaced classrooms and science labs!

This is such a friendly school, everyone is so welcoming

My name is Catherine and I have the privilege of being one of the Heads of School this year. I started at Oakham in the second term of Form 3, in Hambleton House...

Catherine -  HEAD GIRL


My name is Lucy and I am this year's Deputy Head Girl. I joined Oakham in Lower 1 in Ancaster House, making this my 8th year at Oakham.



My name is Alex and I am your Deputy Head Boy this year. I joined Oakham in Form 3 from a prep school called Spratton Hall in Northamptonshire.


From the Head Boy

My name is Alex and I have the honour of being this year’s Head Boy. As a nervous and reserved thirteen-year-old, I was fairly apprehensive at starting my time at Oakham in Form 3, as it is a big school compared to my prep school, Witham Hall.


It's not just about the amazing education you get at Oakham, it's about who you are when you leave
