Aims and Objectives:
At OXFORD ENGLISH School, we introduce House System starting from the first year onwards where it encouraged personal responsibility amongst its pupils. These smaller school communities engender healthy rivalry in friendly games and other extra-curricular activities, building team skills, leadership skills and co-operation.
We introduce this House System into its thriving school life.
Pupils join a House in Year 1 and belong to their House until they leave. The House System will help build an individual’s strengths within a group and create a bond with other pupils of all ages. As pupils reach their senior years at the school they will become increasingly involved in running their Houses and co-ordinating House activities.
Students at OXFORD ENGLISH School will be assigned to one of six houses. The house system will provide the framework for students’ extra- curricular activities, encouraging participation in sporting and cultural activities and promoting leadership development. In addition the students will select their after school activities depending upon their assigned house.
There will be a keen, but good-natured rivalry between the six Houses to see who will win the coveted House Shield each year. Points towards this prize will be accumulated from the various sporting and cultural competitions that are held throughout the year. In the Junior School, these will include: English aptitude, Inter House Games, Athletics Carnivals and Music and Drama contests.
In the Senior School, the competition includes the three major Sports terms, Cross Country, Sports Day, Swimming Carnival as well as Drama, Musical, Choir, Instrumental and Debating Competitions.
During the Students “You-Time!” activities they will also be involved in accumulating points for their house through competitive but friendly competitions.
In the classroom environment, and around the school, students can gain house points for displaying positive behaviour, including completing work well, going out of their way to help others and showing initiative. Points can also be deducted for negative behaviour.
The Parent Teacher Auxiliary (PTA) welcomes parental involvement, encouraging parents to be active members of the school community. We believe that students and Oxford English School are better off when parents participate in the educational process. Parents are an invaluable help to families, staff, and the community affiliated with ISB. Parental involvement occurs in a variety of different ways. This parent body is always working on something — like planning dancing, singing, music etc. or sponsoring or assisting with many student activities — or just by supporting a positive school environment that enriches and supplements student academics through awareness. By volunteering in the classroom or on the sports field, the PTA and Booster Club give parents the ability to be on campus, get to know their children’s friends and teachers, and form lasting friendships. Please visit our PTA Office and discuss ways you would like to become active in your PTA or contact us at
It is our school policy that all the students including students who require ESL support have access to the full curriculum. ESL support is available to all the students who are not yet proficient users of English. Many of our students are not of native speaker , therefore, English may not be their first language and they do require extra support. ESL support is provided in the following ways:
Support to the subject teachers in developing strategies and materials which make access to the curriculum smoother. It should be noted that ESL is also an option for the TOEFL examination at the end of plus 2. They require a high level of proficiency in the language and good passes are recognised by top Indian and international universities as a proof of the student’s high competence in English, enabling them to undertake higher courses at the top level universities or colleges.
ESL students are generally identified during the entrance procedures, but teachers or parents themselves can also make referrals. We have a range of assessment materials to determine students’ levels and problem areas. Where a student is assessed as having only a very elementary understanding of English it may be necessary for the parents to cover part of the expense of employing extra staff to assist them.
