About Us

Oakham School Enterprises Ltd (OSEL) is a dedicated team based in the Oakham Sports Centre at the heart of the School campus. We manage conference venues for hire, residential lettings and sports facilities at Oakham School.  During the Easter, some half terms and the summer holidays, comfortable boarding houses are available for hire for residential training and team building events. With an extensive range of teaching and sports facilities, Oakham School is ideal as a corporate conference venue, training venue, whether you need function rooms or provision for sport academies.

Founded in 1584, Oakham School is rich in history. Our extensive campus and grounds offer a blend of traditional and modern facilities. We are located in the historic market town of Oakham, in the heart of rural England. Oakham School is easy to get to and benefits from excellent road and rail links to London, Stansted and Birmingham airports.

Event Managers and Group Organisers are welcome to visit us to explore our campus and facilities for yourself.  Experience our welcoming atmosphere and delicious catering and we look forward to discussing potential opportunities for a memorable stay.
