International Students at Bloxham School
At Bloxham, we extend a warm welcome to students who join us from overseas.
We are a friendly and inclusive school which celebrates diversity and values learning about other countries and cultures. Though only a small proportion of our community, international students settle very quickly into life here.
"Overseas boarders are swiftly made to feel part of the school community, and pupils take the initiative in making sure that significant festivals that would be marked in their home countries are recognised in the house." - ISI
We are a small, nurturing school with an excellent reputation for pastoral care. International students are fully integrated into our pastoral system and placed alongside British students in six senior boarding houses. This ensures they have every opportunity to meet and mix with British children, improve their English language skills and become fully engaged with our culture.
In general, international students follow the same curriculum as native English-speaking children, though we offer additional support and a course in English as an additional language where there is need.
We welcome applications from students of all nationalities, with main entry points at 13 (Third Form) and 16 (Sixth Form), along with some shorter boarding places at 14 (Fourth Form).
We would encourage any prospective family to browse our website, international student brochure and school prospectus to gain an initial feel for our school. More information about our entry requirements and the application procedure is contained within the following pages. Alternatively, please get in touch with our Admissions Team who will be delighted to guide you through the process.
