Oswestry School’s academic curriculum is part of the school’s “total curriculum,” which is the term used at Oswestry for the complete educational experience of being a pupil at a school where so much takes place in addition to formal, academic lessons.
This culture of total education and focus upon the development of the “whole person,” playing to the strengths, separately, of each pupil, has been a part of the tradition of the school for many centuries. Pupils leave the school as rounded individuals, with interests in many areas of human endeavour and well equipped for the outside world. This ethos is reflected in the school motto: “We learn not for school but for life.” The philosophy of the school has been, and is, the development of each individual pupil through his or her own areas of strength.
