Head Teacher’s Philosophy
d’Overbroeck’s is built on personal relationships, a lack of stuffiness and a strong conviction that every individual lies at the heart of the school. Students are creative, think for themselves and relish stretching the boundaries of their knowledge and do very well academically. A forward-thinking school full of energy, laughter and achievement.
Inclusive, collaborative approach with strong focus on learning being enjoyable as well as successful. Students’ views are valued and listened to; teaching is interactive and motivating in small classes. Students gain confidence in expressing themselves more effectively, in questioning, being independent thinkers, debating and feeling happy in themselves. Large direct entry at Sixth Form (day and boarding). Outstanding value added: Top 2% in country for progress at A-level. 25% A* at A-level in 2018. Superb new sixth form, and boarding facilities.
