HISTORY OF OXFORD COMBINED SCHOOL
Oxford Combined College was founded by the Director Mr L.S. Moyo, on 08/08/1999. Noticing the need for a good education in the area, the intention was to develop a combined school with a rounded and balanced educational ethos.
This was the beginning of greater things to come. A school name was chosen, the emblem was designed and decisions were made on colours for a school uniform. Mr President Manyathela was the first teacher to be recruited.
On 01 January 2000 the school opened its doors for the first time to 389 pupils from Grade 1 to 12. Oxford Combined College began as a combined school which catered for primary school and high school learners in separate buildings. Teaching and lessons started seriously in Kempton Park CBD and new students from surrounding areas like Tembisa, Edleen, Cresslawn continued to join the school.
The first matric group, matriculated in 2001 with 24 pupils and they attained a 94,% pass rate with Mrs Amanda Steyn as the first Principal after her resignation she was followed by Mr N. Sithole. .
Mr P.J. De Lange also contributed to the school’s success as the Principal during his years. The school continued to grow to the extent of accommodating 650 pupils.
The current Administration structure is led by Mr M. Ncube as the Academic Director, Mr V. Ndlovu as the Principal, Mr M. Mathe as Vice Principal (High School), Mrs D. Ngwenya Vice Principal Primary School. Currently the school is looking forward to constructing a state of the Art Boarding School. Planning is through and the school should open around September 2019.
