Headmaster's Welcome

I am passionate about the importance of blending academic excellence with a richness of opportunity; learning must never be simply confined to the four walls of a classroom.

Welcome to Oakham School and thank you for choosing to take a look at our website. This website will give you a feel for what Oakham School is all about - the academic excellence and the many opportunities that our pupils enjoy. Without doubt though, the best way to get to know us, is to come and visit us – see the wonderful environment and meet some of our pupils. You are guaranteed a very warm welcome.

Choosing a school for your son or daughter is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make, and in a world that places ever-changing demands on young people, it is vitally important that schools provide a genuinely holistic education to prepare girls and boys for the challenges they may face on their journey through life. Oakham is such a school.

We are an outstanding community of learners. I am passionate about the importance of blending academic excellence with a richness of opportunity; learning must never be simply confined to the four walls of a classroom. With so much on offer academically and beyond, Oakhamians are sure to find their niche.

Oakham is a school that rewards ambition and hard work. I am hugely proud of all the Oakhamians who received Oxbridge offers this year, but I am equally proud of every student who exceeds their potential, in so many different aspects of school life, through perseverance and determination.

We want Oakhamians to leave us as well-grounded, hard-working individuals who know themselves well and are ready to go out into the world with the confidence and courage to stand up for what they believe in and make a difference.

Welcome to Oakham School.

 

Nigel Lashbrook, Headmaster
