Since 1875, generation upon generation of young women has left Oxford High School. They depart these classrooms and corridors, and the friendships they made within them, eager to take their place in the world beyond school, to embark on stellar career paths and achieve successes notable for their common spirit of independence, fearlessness and originality.

Having left, many old girls decide they want to stay in touch with OHS, keen to remain connected to the place that shaped them and the memories they have here. Very often, our old girls are keen to give something back, whether that’s popping in for a chat, volunteering at an event or simply sharing their school stories over a cup of tea and a slice of cake or something stronger at one of our many reunions.

In the following pages, you’ll find many of those stories recounted in loving detail within our archive, as well as information about forthcoming reunions, news about OHS alumnae and more information about the incredible advantages offered by being a member of the GDST Alumnae Network, a unique club of 70,000 members and the largest of its kind in the UK.
