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 1 to ensure that our pupils not only fulfil their potential but reach beyond it to the highest academic levels and personal development.

Based on two sites in North Oxford, we have excellent facilities so are able to provide a range of sporting and extra-curricular activities within the school day and beyond it, as well as well-regarded out of school care, that operates from 7.30am to 5.45pm. We are also proud of our pastoral care and the support offered to the girls.

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