Welcome To Oakham
Oakham School is an Inspirational place, where opportunities abound, talent is nurtured and characters are formed.
At Oakham, we aim to provide an education that not only acts as a preparation for life after school, but also recognises that these years are precious and should be enjoyable, memorable, and transformative.
