Lord Williams’s School is a thriving and popular comprehensive school serving the Thame community and its surrounding rural area. We are a split-site school, with Years 7 – 9 on the Lower School site at Towersey Road and Years 10 – 13 on the Upper School site at Oxford Road. We pay particular attention to each individual student by promoting their personal, social and educational development to enable all to achieve at the highest level possible. As a result of our continuing success, Lord Williams’s School is consistently oversubscribed.

We promote high quality teaching and learning. We attract talented, committed and conscientious teachers who produce stimulating and challenging learning activities helped by experienced support staff. Teamwork is a key feature of our work.

We are an inclusive school; we cater for all abilities and we provide access for all students. This is reflected in our work with the more able, with students with a range of learning and other difficulties and in our admissions policy for the Sixth Form.

The school has excellent teaching facilities on both sites with accommodation that is suited to the demands of the curriculum.
