The Good Schools Guide

The Good Schools Guide

Capturing all aspects of School life, The Good Schools Guide review always provides an in-depth look at life at Oakham. This year, we were delighted to receive a fantastic review which shone a light on our connected curriculum and vast co-curricular offering.

The Good Schools Guide team summarised their review by saying: “Taking a hint from the school motto, ‘Et quasi cursores vitai lampada tradunt,’ (‘And, like runners, they pass on the torch of life’), this is a place best suited to those who want to be involved and active all day long, on the sports field and off”.

Muddy Stilettos Best Schools Guide

Known for its quirky and stylish approach, Muddy Stilettos visited Oakham for its Best Schools Guide 2022 and captured the history and “impressive facilities” at Oakham.

We loved what they said about our pastoral care:

“Oakham is a fast-paced, joiner-in kind of school so pastoral care is paramount. To its credit, Oakham’s pastoral offering doesn’t appear to be Covid bolt-on and is central to the school’s ethos. Aside from AS tracking and the normal PHSE, work is done in houses to encourage ‘self-checking’ which includes working on routines like developing a healthy sleep routine.”

Tatler Schools Guide 2024

Tatler Schools Guide 2024

Oakham is honoured to be included in the Tatler Schools Guide, with a fantastic write-up in the 2024 issue. “The emphasis on tradition is balanced by a modern outlook”, says the review.

While commenting on Oakham’s long-standing reputation for excellence in sport, it also references the “ample opportunities for creatives”.

SpOken Magazine is a pupil-led literary magazine. Each issue is packed full of poems and stories written by Oakham School pupils of all ages and compiled by a team of pupil editors.
