What the school says...

Wychwood is a unique and friendly day and boarding school for girls aged 11-18, with excellent academic grades and outstanding pastoral care. Situated in the heart of Oxford, we offer an exceptional education for pupils of all abilities through small class sizes which allow for extensive individual attention.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

Lots of summer-born girls, fair few refugees from...
