About Oxted School

Founded in 1929, Oxted School is strongly rooted in the local community, and combines the traditions and values of the last 90 years with the very best facilities and the latest developments in Quality First Teaching. Our size allows us to provide a very broad curriculum and an extensive range of opportunities for our students. However, we work very hard to make a large school ‘feel’ small and ensure our students have a clear sense of belonging. Consequently, we believe that students get the best of both worlds: all the diversity and opportunity a large school brings with the personalised care, guidance and support a small school offers.
