In 1863, the school-board of St Edwards School Oxford (St Edwards School) was founded in the UK, in the legendary University of Oxford: first its campus was located in the center of the city, and then moved to the cozy suburb of Summertown.

It is noteworthy that the programs of St Edwards School Oxford are suitable for students with different levels of development: for example, students with mild degrees of dyslexia are accepted for education, to which teachers are always ready to find an individual approach. Such attention and care have a positive impact on the academic results and psychological comfort of students:

  • GCSE: more than 96% of students take at least 8 subjects for points from C (positive evaluation) and above
  • A-level: in final grades 83% of students take 3 subjects, and 14% - more than 4 directions, and the final total score on exams exceeds 357.

  • 33% - engineering, science
  • 6% - art and design
  • 6% - business, management and economics, vocational and practical disciplines
  • 4% - veterinary medicine, dentistry and medicine.

All students are required to wear school uniforms - an exception is made only for graduate students on the Sixth Form, for which a businesslike, strictly official style of clothing is acceptable. The official religion here is Anglicanism: students can profess any religion and denomination, but a visit to weekly and festive services is required according to the church calendar. The general discipline on the campus as a whole does not differ from the accepted standards of British boarding houses: alcohol, smoking and drugs are strictly prohibited (under the threat of exclusion); in other respects, students bear punishment and responsibility according to the severity of their misconduct.
