The European School Culham is a unique all-age centre of excellence delivering a European primary and secondary curriculum through at least two of the official languages of the European Union. Most children acquire literacy not only in their mother tongue or dominant language but also in one of three vehicular languages: English, French or German.
The school campus is nestled in a large meander of the River Thames near Abingdon only ten miles from the historic and beautiful university city of Oxford. Much of the school is housed in charming listed buildings erected in 1852 as a Church of England teacher training college. Its founder was Samuel Wilberforce, Bishop of Oxford and third son of Sir William Wilberforce, the famous slavery abolitionist.
Although the all-age school has currently 835 pupils, these are spread over 14 year groups. Consequently, pupils benefit enormously from small scale education within a very closely knit school community, organised in Language Sections, which is very supportive, both academically and pastorally. This may provide one reason why ES Culham has achieved a 100% pass-rate in the European Baccalaureate for the last three years and also scored the highest Baccalaureate average of all the other European Schools.
