What The Good Schools Guide says..
All schools say that they nurture every child as an individual, but common sense tells us that this is easier to achieve in a school of 120 rather than an academic super tanker of 800 or more. Girls we met were thoughtful, independent-minded – lacking the swagger of nearby sisters perhaps – and fiercely loyal to their school and its ways. Lots of summer-born girls, fair few refugees from...
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. Established in 1897, individuality has always been more important than conformity at Wychwood and the girls have opportunities for success in many directions. We pride ourselves on giving each pupil the consideration and total support of a highly dedicated staff, enabling them to discover, realise and exceed their initial potential. ...Read more

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2012, Mrs Andrea Johnson BSc (50s). Comes from a family of teachers and doctors and intended ‘never to do either’. She read chemistry at Durham, did a PGCE ‘because it might be useful’ and unexpectedly fell in love with teaching. Formerly assistant head at Tudor Hall where she worked for 20 years, she is the first head of Wychwood not to be an old girl. Teaches chemistry to year 7 and 11. Married to a retired scientist, two adult children, at least one intends to continue the family tradition and is training to be a teacher.
Mrs Johnson is energetic, genuine and very friendly – her presence is reassuring, rather like a wise owl, and one feels she could cope with anything (parents tell us that she does). Just as...
