St Clare's Oxford is an independent, co-educational, day and boarding college located in elegant north Oxford and has been offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma for over 40 years, longer than any other school or college in England. It is also an IB World School. The college has a worldwide reputation for expertise in providing the IB Diploma and embraces internationalism and academic excellence as its core values.

Students from over 45 countries study at St Clare's, including a significant number of British students. The atmosphere is informal and friendly, with an equal emphasis on hard work and developing personal responsibility and mutual respect between staff and students.

St Clare's has an especially wide range of subjects on offer at higher and standard level and, in addition, can teach literature face-to-face in over 25 different languages, something that is not available in any other school in the UK. In recent years, 19 of our students have gained the maximum 45 points and obtained places at top ranking universities worldwide.

The college also offers a one year Pre-IB course which includes English and Maths GCSEs, a two year Middle School Programme including 5 GCSEs and a three week IB Introduction Course in the summer to prepare for the start of the diploma in September.

Students live in college houses close to the central campus, under the care of residential staff. St Clare's also welcomes students from the local area as day students.

There is an extensive programme of social, cultural and sporting activities and students are encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities that Oxford provides.

St Clare's is most definitely different to any other college in Oxfordshire and rightly so. We have a different approach to studying, living and developing the students as young adults, creating knowledgeable, open-minded and inquiring minds.
