Welcome from the Head of College (Interim)

Welcome to Oxley College and thank you for visiting our website.  As one of the pre-eminent regional schools in New South Wales, we are proud to provide a quality education in a co-educational non-denominational setting.  The website will provide you with a glimpse of life at Oxley and you are most welcome to visit the school.

Oxley College is a very special community; it is a place where each child is valued and supported to discover their talents and flourish in an increasing complex world. Our students are known by the staff and are valued for their unique gifts each one brings to our community. Each student is encouraged to be intellectually curious, to be strong independent thinkers and to take on the challenge of being the best human they can be.

All fine schools look to engage the body, mind, heart and spirit. One of the best things about Oxley is the positive environment for learning which permeates through the entire College. Students are at the heart of our work, and their breadth and depth of involvement is extraordinary. The staff here are professional and dedicated and demonstrate a deep commitment and care about each student’s education.

At Oxley opportunities abound for our students, within and beyond the classroom.  It is about stretching minds and broadening horizons, providing a cultural richness and focusing on the education and care of the whole child. Our learning spaces are amongst the trees, on a beautifully landscaped campus in the Southern Highlands.

Oxley has been known to be ‘big enough to cater’ and ‘small enough to care’.  The strength of positive relationships creates a rich climate for personal growth.  Students moving from being youth of promise to young adults of substance inspires our mantra for students to think, to dare and to dream.  Our values of justice, humanity, wisdom, fortitude and mindfulness guide our policies and programmes.
