Today marks another important milestone for Nord Anglia Education. Three of the UK’s leading independent day and boarding schools will join our family of schools from the Oxford International Education Group as of 31 March 2021.
Our three new schools are Oxford International College, d’Overbroeck’s, and Oxford Sixth Form College, all of which are based in Oxford, England and are amongst the highest-ranked schools in the UK. The schools’ students regularly achieve amongst the top 1% of results in A-levels and GCSEs and go on to study at the world’s top universities including the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge.
We are delighted to welcome our schools in Oxford into the Nord Anglia family, and you may be interested to know that 50 years ago Nord Anglia started life in the north of England. We are now the world’s largest premium schools organisation, and these schools in the UK represent a significant addition to our global network.
Oxford International College, established in 2002, is recognised as one of the UK’s best Sixth Form colleges. In 2020 and 2019, the school was named the best-performing college by The Times School League, The Daily Telegraph School League, and the Educational Advisors’ Independent School League Table.
D’Overbroeck’s, founded in 1977, is a leading independent, co-educational day and boarding school. The school is made up of Years 7 to 11, a Sixth Form teaching A-levels with boarding, and an international school delivering IGCSE.
Oxford Sixth Form College, established in 1988, is an independent day and boarding Sixth Form college for students aged 15 to 19 which specialises in A-levels, GCSE, and other courses.
In addition to the three schools, we are also pleased to announce that Bucksmore Education from the Oxford International Education Group is also joining the Nord Anglia family. Bucksmore provides award-winning academic short-term courses for students ages 10-18 in the UK and USA.
Our new schools share our educational philosophy and are a strong cultural fit with Nord Anglia. In becoming part of our global family, our 1,100 new students will join Nord Anglia classmates around the world through access to Global Campus, our technology-enabled learning platform. Also, over 200 new teaching colleagues will benefit from shared resources through Nord Anglia University and our world-class professional development.
With this announcement, Nord Anglia’s global family of schools now includes 73 premium schools in 30 countries. Please join us in welcoming our new colleagues and students to Nord Anglia Education.
