In line with our boarding ethos, the Oakham School week is structured to enable all our pupils – boarding and day – to make the most of the countless opportunities available to them, both inside and outside the classroom. Lessons for pupils from Form 1 (Year 7) to Form 7 (Year 13) take place from Monday to Saturday morning, with time for co-curricular activities built into the weekly timetable.
A typical school day starts with Roll Call at 8.15am, followed by morning lessons lasting 50 minutes each with a half-hour mid-morning break. An hour at lunch gives everyone a chance to relax and enjoy a delicious and nutritious cooked lunch in the Barraclough Dining Hall. Depending on the day of the week, there are lessons, sports training and fixtures in the afternoon, followed by leisure time for House socials, interhouse competitions, a chance to catch up on Prep, or simply relax.
