Academic

At Bloxham we aim to foster a passion for learning. We look to kindle the fires of intellectual curiosity and to challenge students to think outside their comfort zones by travelling beyond the confines of the examination syllabus. At the heart of our teaching is our belief that all students should be inspired and encouraged to explore their learning further. We help our pupils to develop independent critical thought, reflect on their learning and use their intellect to problem solve.

We resist fads and hold on to what is good about our traditions, though we employ the latest methodology from educational research to unlock potential in order to provide a first class education for all our students. Bloxham is genuinely co-educational, to the great benefit of all its pupils, and your child will be taught in ways which enable both girls and boys to thrive and learn from each other.

We pride ourselves on our students reaching their potential, a goal we achieve by giving individual attention, in small class sizes, with innovative teaching. Bloxham has a dedicated, enthusiastic teaching staff who are reflective and forward thinking in their approach. Staff go beyond expectations to help students achieve, by offering one-to-one sessions, clinics and workshops outside timetabled teaching. Our enrichment programme is extensive, with trips and academic clubs and societies used to complement what is learned in the classroom and to help students delve deeper in their learning. Our academic results are strong and each year most Sixth Form leavers go on to study courses at the universities of their choice, which are as diverse as reading English at Oxford to Maths at Boston.

Academic progress is monitored and reported upon six times a year through a challenge grade system. Our system provides a vital opportunity for tutors to talk about work with the pupils and develop student improvement plans when required. Parents are involved at all stages of the process which also includes regular parent-teacher consultations, both formally and informally.
