St Oswald’s and Oswestry School have a relationship of more than six centuries, with the original school building still standing beside the churchyard. The School supports the Church’s musical life with generous scholarships. Oswestry School holds weekly chapel services as well as its larger celebrations, including Founder’s Day, in St Oswald’s Church.
