The College took its name from the famous early Australian explorer, John Oxley, and looks up to the hill named after him. His descendants gave permission for the family crest to be used as the basis of the College badge which incorporates their motto Patientia et Fortitudine—Patience and Fortitude and the College similarly adopted this as its motto.
At Oxley, our commitment to learning in breadth recognises that activities beyond the classroom are very much a part of our conscious programme of learning. Abundant opportunities exist for students to explore their gifts in cultural, sporting, community service and outdoor activities.
Interviews are currently taking place for Kindergarten, Year 3, Year 5 & Year 7, 2023 and beyond. Please enquire for all year groups. Our next Oxley College open morning is Friday 10 March 2023 at 11.00 am. Please register here.
