Welcome from the Head of College

Welcome to Oxley College. We are an independent school for students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12 located in Burradoo, in the beautiful Southern Highlands.  We are a vibrant, respectful, and inclusive community, large enough to provide opportunities for our students to find their place, but small enough so that they are known. I hope this website provides you with a glimpse into our College and the learning that takes place.

We are proud to be co-educational, non-denominational and regional. Oxley is a special community, where our core values of Kindness, Courage and Wisdom are at the centre of all that we do. Our focus is development of character, care for the whole child and importantly enlightened academic rigour. Each student is encouraged to be intellectually curious, to be strong independent thinkers and to take on the challenge of being the best they can be. This is reflected by our candidacy as a Round Square school.

Our staff are professional and dedicated and demonstrate a deep commitment and care for each student’s education. Our learning spaces are amongst the trees, on a beautifully landscaped campus in the Southern Highlands. The environment here really does inspire students to think, encourage them to dare and to enable them to dream.

We place a high value on experiential education. It is through participation in sporting, performing arts and outdoor education programs that our students have further opportunity to shine. Students are at the heart of our work, and their breadth and depth of involvement is extraordinary.

Being only an hour and a half from the centre of Sydney, students at Oxley really do have the best of the city, but the heart of the country. I very much welcome you to visit us and I look forward to meeting you when you do.

Mr Scott Bedingfield
Head of College
