It is described by The Good Schools Guide as 'a place of energy and laughter, of single-minded determination among students to do the best they can. And d'Overbroeck's doesn't let them down.'[1] The College has three main parts, all based on different sites in North Oxford: Leckford Place - the youngest section of the College, taking boys and girls aged 11-16. This section of the College is for day students only. The Sixth Form - teaching A levels to sixth form students (both day and boarding) aged 16+.

Unlike many independent schools, the Sixth Form of d'Overbroeck's College is on an entirely separate site, meaning that its facilities and teaching are entirely geared towards sixth form students. The Sixth Form is located in North Oxford, with the main teaching centre being The Swan Building, 111 Banbury Road, Oxford. Students The Sixth Form has a total of around 250 students, with an even mix of boys and girls. Approximately 50% of students are boarders and 50% day students. The majority of students at d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form are from the UK, but international students are also integral. Students from a large range of countries are welcomed to the Sixth Form (30 different nationalities at present). Of the 250 students in the Sixth Form, around 40 will have stayed on from Leckford Place or the International Study Centre. The vast majority, however, join from other schools post-GCSE. Results and accolades A level results achieved by students at d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form are consistently strong. In 2010 27% of grades were A* 59% A/A*, placing the College at number 106 in the national league table for independent schools[2] In the academic year 2009-10 the Sixth Form achieved a contextual value added score of 1,102[3]. This was the highest score achieved by any school nationwide. d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form is described by the Good Schools Guide as 'quite possibly the leading independent sixth form in the UK'[4] Entry The Sixth Form is selective, and entry is typically by application, reference and interview. Entry requires at least 8 GCSEs at grade A* to C, normally including Maths and English, or equivalent. A number of Sixth Form scholarships and awards are available, including: Academic scholarships Science scholarships Performing arts scholarships Art scholarships Environmental awareness scholarships Enterprise award d'Overbroeck's also offers a number of bursaries (which, unlike scholarships, are means-related) and an Access Award for students of outstanding academic ability who wish to move from the state sector into independent education. Curriculum Students at the Sixth Form study A levels, choosing their subjects from a list of nearly 40. Because these are not organised in option blocks, practically any combination of subjects is possible.

Students choosing to study the AQA Baccalaureate do so in addition to their normal A levels, and will also complete an extended project participate in an enrichment programme to encourage and recognise out-of-classroom achievement take an examined AS level in Critical Thinking The AQA Baccalaureate has proved popular amongst students, with 25% of Lower Sixth choosing to take the qualification in 2010. Pastoral system Pastoral care and academic monitoring at the Sixth Form are carried out by a system of Directors of Studies. Each student is supervised by a Director of Studies - one of a team of senior staff. Each Director of Studies supervises a small number of students for whom they have pastoral and academic responsibility. In many cases a student will also be taught by their Director of Studies. A student will meet his or her Director of Studies regularly, one to one, to discuss pastoral and academic matters. The Director of Studies also helps students individually with all aspects of university application coordinates students' study programmes liaises with students' subject teachers to maintain an ongoing overview of progress Outcomes The vast majority of Sixth Form students go on to study at UK universities. Top university destinations from 2007-2009 were: 1 University of Leeds 2 Oxford Brookes University 3 University of Oxford 4 University College London 5 Cambridge University 5 University of Edinburgh 5 Imperial College London 5 London School of Economics 9 University of York 10 King's College London Leckford Place (11-16) Leckford Place is located in Leckford Road, Oxford.

The International Study Centre The International Study Centre (hereafter referred to as ISC) is located on St Giles, close to the centre of Oxford. The ISC takes international students aged 15+, and is therefore a boarding school. Students at the ISC will study the College's GCSE Programme, designed specifically for international students as a preparation to study A levels or the International Baccalaureate at a British school. Students The ISC takes around 40 students each year, with a broad mix of nationalities. As is the case throughout d'Overbroeck's College, the ISC is coeducational. Students are required to have at least a Lower intermediate (B1) level of English language for entry into the ISC. Results and accolades In the ISC's most recent British Council inspection, it was awarded points of excellence in six separate areas: Teaching Pastoral care Learner training Leisure programme Aspects of course design Aspects of administration of students No other UK international study centre scored more points of excellence, according to a summary of organisations' results published in the EL Gazette[6] The GCSE Programme The GCSE Programme at the ISC is a 1-2 year course in which students study a range of GCSE subjects and take examinations at the end of the course. Alongside their academic studies, students receive expert tuition in English. GCSE subjects available on the programme include: English Maths Chemistry Physics Biology Combined Science History Art French Geography Business Studies Citizenship Project Award Own language Students are grouped according to ability, and the programme is designed to be flexible enough to fit with students' various aptitudes and aims. Extracurricular activities The ISC aims to furnish students with a knowledge and appreciation of British culture. To this end, students go on numerous trips to cultural and historical locations, in Oxford and elsewhere in the UK. All students take part in an annual pantomime, typically performed in a professional theatre. Students also have regular sports/activities sessions. Outcomes By the end of the GCSE Programme, students are equipped with academic credentials and English language skills to ensure success at A level. The majority of students on the GCSE Programme go on to study at the d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form. Others have gained places at other UK boarding schools.
