Teaching & Learning

New College is a small community school, but it has first-class teaching and learning facilities. Our award-winning sports hall – also housing a music/IT suite and art room – was opened by Lord Patten, the Chancellor of the University of Oxford. We have a state-of-the-art junior and senior Science laboratory, comfortable library and media room, hall for music and drama, DT room, beautiful sports fields, and we share access to the spectacular fourteenth century New College Chapel, as well as using the College gardens, cloisters, library and archives to support boys' learning. All classrooms at NCS are bright, airy and full of lively displays of work and engaging visual material. All are equipped with data projectors, many with interactive whiteboards and all with access to sets of iPads. In the younger part of the School, pupils are taught much of the time in one classroom, which is also their form room. As they grow older, they move round the School to specialist teaching rooms, but always keeping one classroom as their form base.
