Oswestry School is an independent school, overseen by a board of governors who agree the fee levels each year. Founded by David Holbache in 1407, Oswestry School is a charity (no. 1079822) and as such reinvests any surplus made back into the school, ensuring that future generations of Oswestrians receive the very finest of British education that their predecessors have experienced over the past 600+ years.

Oswestry School aims to keep its fees as low as possible and sits at a very competitive level compared to schools of a similar type nationally. We appreciate what a commitment it is for parents to pay for a leading education and as such would recommend that you gain independent financial advice to secure the best method for paying these fees.
