At Oxford Manor College we passionately believe that all students can successfully pursue his/her dreams if they show real effort and determination to do their best.

We celebrate success and applaud effort and determination whenever our students really go ‘the extra mile’ to be the best that they can be. This may be reflected in lessons, clubs,  homework, or through any contribution to the rich life of our school.

Rewarding effort and determination is at the heart of our philosophy as a school. We have many academically able students in our school, but our system encourages students of all abilities to be outstanding. That’s one of the reasons why our students make outstanding progress in their learning.


The values which underpin everything we do are expressed in our Mission Statement:

  • At Oxford Manor College we encourage ambition, a positive self-image and pride in achievement.
  • Within a stimulating learning environment, we motivate, challenge and support all members of the school in pursuit of excellence.
  • We value each individual and confront all forms of prejudice.
  • In partnership with parents and the wider community, we seek to enrich the quality of school life, make learning enjoyable and empower all our members to realise their potential and to contribute fully to the society of which they are a part.


We recognise that a top quality education consists of much more than just academic qualifications. The skills and qualities which we instill in our young people will have a profound impact on the quality of their lives and their future opportunities. Their personal and social strengths will be integral to everything they achieve. At Oxford Manor we work hard to develop students who are:

  • Confident
  • Creative
  • Expressive
  • Independent
  • Collaborative
  • Empathetic
  • Resilient
