Oak House School first opened its doors on September 19, 1968 on a rural site situated at No.12, Sant Pere Claver Street in the upper part of Sarrià.
In those days, the combination of the adjacent land and the original tower made it a location of outstanding beauty, but as the number of students grew, the school started to gradually increase its facilities, completing the rural land with a series of modern buildings.
In September 1989, OAK HOUSE SCHOOL S.A. changed to the current OAK HOUSE SCHOOL PRIVATE FOUNDATION, inscribed in the Generalitat de Catalunya Private Foundations Register, number 460, as a non-profit organization.
Nowadays, OAK HOUSE SCHOOL has become an important prestigious institution but still remains its humble beginning aim, to educate and help their students personal development.
The school shield created in 1968 has been modified during the years
Initially, it was composed by St. Georges red cross against a golden background, with a green pine with a brown trunk superimposed and the schools name at the top. The red and green colours that were present on it, stood out for the two houses in which students were grouped at the time – red for the “Maple House” and green for the “Pine House” –.
However, the shield was changed in 1988. The red cross turned white and the gold background blue. Instead of a pine there was a leafy oak tree and a yellow band with the inscription “esse quod videris” which means “act with integrity” was placed at the bottom part.
