Whatever their age, Oakham offers its pupils an exciting and dynamic academic learning experience. Our aim is to equip our pupils with the knowledge, attitudes and skills to thrive at School and beyond.

Through our outstanding academic curriculum, we encourage our pupils to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers who can make links across the different subjects they are taught. Like many schools, we are able to help our pupils to achieve outstanding results in their examinations; the Oakham difference is that our genuinely holistic approach to education via our Connected Curriculum teaches our pupils how to take their studies further and rise to the intellectual challenges that they will encounter in their later lives.
