The creative arts are also a highly valued aspect of Bloxham’s well-rounded education programme, and the school was shortlisted for an Independent Schools of the Year Award for performing arts in 2020.

Bloxham School welcomes international pupils from all over the world. Although international students are a relatively small proportion of the school community at Bloxham, international pupils are always warmly welcomed and settle into life smoothly and quickly at Bloxham.

Overseas pupils who need support with their English language are provided one-to-one or group classes to improve their level of English. International pupils also have the opportunity to sit Cambridge ESOL exams if this is something that interests them.
