At Bloxham School we are justly proud of our facilities and are pleased that we can make these available for commercial hire when the school is not in session. There are two elements:

  • Public use of Bloxham School sports facilities -enquiries to [email protected]
  • Hire during school holidays

The school’s facilities are perfectly suited to events including wedding receptions, private parties, corporate retreats & seminars, group residential trips, summer school programmes and sports events.

We can offer residential lets in one or more of our six boarding houses during the Christmas and Easter holidays or day hire in our school holidays or half terms (excluding 24th-27th December inclusive, when school is closed). We can provide a tailored package making use of our academic and recreational facilities, our range of performance areas and our sports facilities. We can also provide a full catering service, where needed, with the same high standards that our pupils enjoy.

We pride ourselves on our friendly and flexible customer service and will work closely with you to meet your requirements. For enquiries, please contact Viv Wilson on 01295 724321 or at [email protected]
