The ethos of our school is one of intellectual challenge combined with real heart, resulting in an atmosphere of true originality. We create learning opportunities and environments that encourage girls to take risks, make connections and develop strength as well as insight. Our girls are encouraged to be individuals, but as part of a closely bonded network of friends, teachers and parents.

Our values

Oxford High School leads the way in educating high-achieving girls, who have the drive and determination to change the world for the better.

We develop resourceful girls who are unafraid of challenge, with the confidence to lead and the self-assurance to question. We value creativity.

We are a friendly and down to earth school, where every girl is encouraged to find her own voice.

Through inspiring teaching and warm relationships, girls are encouraged to make the most of their individual strengths.

We encourage every girl to reach her academic potential while learning skills for life through a broad range of cultural, spiritual and sporting opportunities.

We are the longest established girls’ school in Oxford and we have a committed, outward-facing approach to our community.
