‘Oxford High has helped my interest in Engineering to flourish, and has given me opportunities to see where my love of Chemistry can take me. Being able to apply the Maths we do to broaden the Physics and Chemistry specifications means I fully develop my understanding of the fundamental principles. The GDST Engineering Conference also gave me useful contacts at Procter and Gamble’. Sephe Tapper (Year 13, 2015)
When our students arrive at university, they are often instantly recognised as ex-Oxford High. Universities praise their intellectual courage and self-confidence, and describe them as unafraid to debate and challenge even if the only girl in a male-orientated subject. Our 360 Programme for Sixth Form gives girls a huge head start at university and in the workplace. As one of the highest performing schools in the country, our success is achieved through exceptional teaching of an academically challenging programme. What sets Oxford High apart is our focus on the future skills and strengths our students will need when they launch their careers.
Being part of a GDST Sixth Form brings unrivalled benefits to all OHS Sixth Formers. You automatically become part of a 70,000+ strong network of career women in the GDST Alumnae Network who are on hand to guide you from choosing your course and university, to social gatherings once on campus and to mentoring through your career. Whilst at OHS, you can participate in the Careerstart workshops and the Young Leaders’ conference, represent the OHS student body on the GDST Student Council, attend a range of university pre-interview test preparation courses plus the GDST Oxbridge conference, compete for scholarships and awards (often with generous financial prizes), and apply for career-focused internships with prestigious global companies such as Rolls Royce, Deloitte, HSBC and Nomura Bank . All of which give you a clear edge when it comes to university applications and preparation for future careers. Our girls really are the leaders of the future in their chosen fields.
We are a school filled with endless energy and constant laughter. Why not come and explore what we can offer you at Sixth Form?
