A School with a Difference.

Padworth College was founded in 1963 by Oxford University tutor, Peter Fison, and a group of Oxford dons whose vision was to bring Oxford’s educational philosophy of tutorial teaching to school-level education. Our founders saw the potential for a different, modern approach to learning in contrast to rigid, traditional teaching methods, which allowed little room for individuality.

Our aim is to uphold the innovative vision of our founders to offer a truly unique educational experience – based on small classes in a personal, informal atmosphere, which focuses on each individual’s personal talents. We aim to develop reflective, creative and caring thinkers with a worldview based on open-mindedness, intercultural understanding and respect. Since our founding we have remained true to our mission and kept our founding principles at the heart of what we are and what we do.

Are you Padworth? If you are a unique individual and open–minded global citizen, we are the right school for you.
