It is set in 50 acres of its own grounds and boasts some of the most beautiful countryside in Britain on its doorstep.

Peter Middleton, Headmaster at Oswestry School

A message from our Headmaster

The poet WB Yeats once said that “education is not the filling of a bucket but the lighting of a fire”.  At Oswestry School, we are firmly committed to providing that kindling with a distinctive whole person education that seeks to inspire, enlighten and empower. 

Founded in 1407, Oswestry sits alongside the oldest schools in England and is one of very few ‘ancient’ schools to have a truly independent foundation.  From that first acorn of an idea has grown a mighty oak with deep roots and a wide-reaching canopy spanning six centuries; we remain proud of that rich history and heritage and continue to celebrate it to this day.
