All pupils entering Oakham aged 13+ and 16+ join one of our 10 Boarding and Day Houses, situated in the heart of the School campus.
With all of the School’s fantastic facilities just a stone’s throw away, pupils can get stuck into School life straightaway and take advantage of everything we offer.
Form 6 (Year 12) pupils have the opportunity to lead their House and act as a role model to the younger years before moving to the Final Year Houses in Form 7 (Year 13) where they enjoy greater independence and can focus on their studies and plans beyond School.
