Catherine Head Girl

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
