UK independent school joins OIEG

11, December, 2014

Oxford International Education Group (OIEG), a provider of educational programmes, including university preparation, in the UK and North America has partnered with d’Overbroeck’s, a leading independent co-educational day and boarding school based in north Oxford.

The Swan Building is the oldest part of d'Overbroeck's and houses the Sixth Form College.

Identifying a need for further investment in facilities and physical space for its growing Sixth Form College, Sami Cohen, Principal of d’Overbroeck’s, said the partnership with OIEG would provide them with the perfect platform for expansion.

“We are proud of what we – staff, students and parents – have achieved over the years. This is a vibrant and highly successful school with an outstanding team of staff and an educational ethos which is both robust and distinctive. For the school to continue to grow and to develop further, we will need new teaching and boarding space; and we have come to realise that we can’t achieve this on our own,” said Cohen.

Established in 1977, d’Overbroeck’s currently caters for approximately 460 students aged between 11 and 18 and offers GSCE, A-levels (age 16+), iGCSE (age 14+) and summer English courses (ages 14-to-17). The school also has a dedicated international study centre and was ranked 14th in The Times’ national league table of co-educational independent schools in 2014 based on the strength of its A-level results. Seventy one per cent of students who took A-level exams at the school in 2014 achieved an A* or A grade. A further 47 per cent of candidates achieved three or more A* or A grades.

David Brown, Co-founder of OIEG, noted that the school would retain full autonomy in terms of staff infrastructure and academic provision, adding, “d’Overbroeck’s is a well-known school with a very strong ethos and clear educational values. We are excited to support Sami and his team to continue to grow and develop the school’s provision in the future.”

OIEG was founded in 1991 by owner-managers David Brown and Robert Darell and rebranded from ISIS Education Group earlier this year.
