d’Overbroeck’s is a leading, independent co-educational day and boarding school based in Oxford, offering exceptional academic and extra-curricular programmes for students aged 11-18. With physical open days unable to take place in 2020, d’Overbroeck’s looked into virtual possibilities. The purpose and set up of the virtual open day would closely resemble a physical open day, where prospective students and their parents would have the opportunity to engage with subject teachers and school staff, as well as get a look inside the school and campus.
