What the school says...
Oxford High School is Oxford’s oldest girls’ school, a leading independent day school based in the heart of Oxford for girls aged 4 to 18 years.
We are a vibrant and happy school full of bright, clever, interesting pupils. We have a wealth of alumnae who have become leaders in their chosen fields across the world, and we have consistently high academic results at GCSE and A Level.
We encourage our girls to be ambitious in all areas of life, to develop self-confidence, aware of the impact of their actions on those they care about, on the wider world and upon themselves. We live life to the full, proud of our past and preparing for the future.
Oxford High School is one of 26 Girls’ Day School Trust schools. All GDST schools share a common set of values that support our aims and place girls first. ...Read more
