d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form

Based in North Oxford, d'Overbroeck's Sixth Form has over 240 students. Our approach is based on the premise that sixth form should be different from what's gone before. Challenging - exciting - dynamic. As an A level student, you'll be discussing, exploring and analysing ideas in depth, enthused by energetic teachers and small, energetic classes. Our aim, through these pages, is to introduce you to student life at d'Overbroeck's, as well as to give you detailed information about the teaching and support we provide - alongside a broad range of extra-curricular options. Each year we have over 240 students in the two years of the Sixth Form. About 30 of these join the Sixth Form from our own Year 11 or our International Study Centre, but the vast majority join us from other schools following their GCSEs.

Oxford United F.C. is an English football team currently playing in Football League Two. The club is owned by chairman Firoz Kassam and managed by Brian Talbot. Its home ground is the Kassam Stadium in Oxford with a capacity of 12,500.

In 1960, Headington United was renamed Oxford United in order to give it a higher profile.


Studley Wood Golf Club - Oxford

As our name suggests, woods play an important part in the topography of the course. Designed by Simon Gidman, the par 73 course is set in 170 undulating acres of what was once an extensive woodland. Two loops of nine holes play in opposite directions around a 30 acre wood, which lies at the centre of the course. Testing natural hazards come courtesy of 13 lakes, some impressive ground vegetation and a richness of fine, mature trees, most of which are specimen oaks. Great care has been taken to set out the 18 holes in such a way that each fairway and green has its own distinctive character and offers its own particular challenge.

Standlake Arena - Standlake

There has been racing at Standlake since 1972 and it originally started off as a dirt track. In April 1983 the Hook family took over the promotion of it and are still running it today. After the first meeting the decision was taken to concrete the bends and later on that season the straights were done. The promotion of the Track changed hands in the mid 90's from Mike Hook (who is on the PA on race days), to his son Keith. The track originally had a ditch running around the outside and although it was fairly popular amongst racers, the decision was taken in 1995 to replace the ditch with the current Armco barrier. The following winter the race control building was moved from what is now the back straight to its current location, giving the track its current layout.


Hadden Hill Golf Club - Didcot

The course was built to the highest standards, with no expense spared on its greens, which are superb, and the fairways where the ball sits up waiting to be hit. It is a pleasure to play, and a real challenge for all players whatever their standard. It has already been chosen for two County events. The course has spectacular views to the Berkshire Downs and the historic Wittenham Clumps. Visitors are always welcome to come and play the course. Tee times can be booked up to a week in advance by visitors. Pro-shop and Driving Range opening hours are 0830 - 2000 Monday to Friday, 0700 - 1900 Saturday and Sunday.
