As Principal, I wish you a very warm welcome to Our School! I do hope this website will give you a flavour of all that we achieve here.
Tower College is a private yet affordable co-educational school for pupils aged 3 -16 and offers a stimulating curriculum and a supportive environment to ensure our pupils experience success every day. We focus on scholastic development, personal growth, and ethical enrichment. The result: students who are independent and confident, inquisitive and enthusiastic, responsible and compassionate. “Achievement, Belonging and Compassion” underpin all that we do at Tower College.
Tower College has a happy, secure, family atmosphere in which the pupils thrive. This is particularly satisfying as the school was founded by my late parents, Charles and Muriel Oxley, in 1948, and my cousins were among the first pupils, with my brothers and me following on! The family atmosphere is still evident: staff members include past pupils, and former and current parents.
My father’s wish for the school was to have successful pupils in academic work, in sport and in music. Each year our successes in all these areas make me realize how his vision is now a reality owing to the hard work of staff and pupils, and the support of parents. My mother just wanted the children to be kind to one another – a simple enough aim, but one that does take patience and time. The children from Nursery onwards learn to share with and care for others, and the older children work and socialize in an atmosphere free from bullying.
We consider our pupils the very best advertisement for all we do here.
