What the school says...

At Oxford High Junior School we offer a broad and exciting curriculum, with specialist teaching in Music, Art, PE, Science and French from Key Stage One to ensure that our pupils not only fulfil their potential but reach beyond it to the highest academic levels and personal development.

Visitors are very welcome, either at open days, special events or individually; please contact the school.
