Holbache House

Holbache is home to 33 boys in Years 12-13 and offers excellent facilities.

Most rooms are designed for two to share, but there are also some single bedrooms. House Prefects and Upper Sixth boys are given single rooms wherever possible. Each of the rooms has a washbasin, desks, as well as ample storage. There are kitchen facilities where the boys may prepare snacks, and a spacious common room/television lounge with a smart television and a PlayStation 4.

Holbache boys enjoy a variety of activities during the evenings (after prep is completed) and at weekends; from movie nights with pizza and popcorn to bingo. Boys can play basketball, volleyball and badminton in the Momentum Sports Hall, football on the astroturf, and swim in the School pool. House trips to the golf driving range, climbing wall, and cinema are popular.

The international community at Oswestry School provides a welcome diversity to the life of the school. Our aim is to keep a balance of international boarders, so that no single nationality dominates.
