D’Overbroeck’s College in Oxford offers A level, and one or two year GCSE programme as well as Summer English Courses. d'Overbroeck's is known for its excellent preparation of students for the top universities in the UK; 10% of students are offered places at Oxford or Cambridge University every year.
Whilst being predominantly a UK school attracting students from Oxford and elsewhere in Britain, the Collese has always welcomed the cultural diversity that international students bring.
A LEVEL PROGRAMME
Of the 240 students in the Sixth Form, 40% are from overseas and come from 30 different countries. According to Good Schools Guide, d'Overbroeck's is: "Quite possibly the leading independent Sixth Form in the UK." Students can choose from almost 40 different subjects. Alongside the more traditional subjects, students can also take a broad range of more unusual options such as Accounting, Business Studies, Latin, Law and Psychology. Every year students achieve excellent academic results thanks to a small number of students in a class (on average 7 students), the dedication of teachers and the friendly atmosphere.
