A current parent perspective on the UK's top schools


INSIDE SCOOP St. Edward’s, Oxford Woodstock Road, Oxford, OX2 7NN Admissions: 01865 319200 • Day/Full 13-18 The Inside Scoop from a current parent… We chose Teddies because it catered for both of our wildly different children! It is every bit as impressive academically as it is with drama, music and sport. We love the fact that it’s a mixed school and our son and daughter could be together plus it is set in an awesome city and isn’t too shiny! It was important to us that they could escape the school environment to grab a hot chocolate in Summertown during their busy week. That way, they felt they had some independence and the school allowed them to grow. We initially chose it because of the full boarding aspect but now we all love the flexibility of coming home too. I have to say… it’s a secret gem! SE As parents, we love: That it’s a very normal school, a perfect balance of kids from various backgrounds and locations. That the children can come home at weekends or if they wish to stay in, there is plenty to keep them busy. The ability to take either the IB or A level which are both taught brilliantly. Our children love: The increasing levels of trust from the school. The wide variety of sport. My son’s highlight is watching the annual English Rugby team training camp at Teddies. The size and harmony of the school. HEADS UP “St Edward’s is a refreshingly different kind of school, whose community fizzes with diverse interests and enthusiasms. Innovative teaching delivers energy and vitality to the classroom, whilst collaborative learning is the lifeblood of the Teddies curriculum.” Stephen Jones, Headmaster Open days: Saturday 18th May 2019 and Saturday 21st September 2019 (Sixth Form). 74 Read the full review on ★ 2019
