By leaving us a gift in your will, you can help us continue to make a difference to the education of bright, talented girls and make a real impact for generations to come. You can make a bequest for something specific, like bursaries, or you can give to where the school’s needs are greatest, and whether the gift is big or small, it really makes a difference to our pupils. If you are thinking about leaving us a gift we have lots of information to help you. If you intend to make a bequest, or have already made provisions in your will for the school, please do get in touch and let us know you are thinking of us. You only need share the details you would like to tell us, and we would very much like to thank you.

You may of course wish your gift to remain anonymous but by letting us know of your pledge, you are helping us plan for the future. All discussions will be in complete confidence. If you would prefer to talk to OHS or the GDST about leaving a legacy please contact our Director of Development on 

You will also, should you wish, become part of our Sunflower Circle, which was set up as a way of thanking all those who have kindly pledged to leave a legacy in their Will in support of our school. It is an opportunity to gather together alumnae, past members of staff and friends of the school and to enjoy events and lunches in and around Oxford. We have had delightful lunches hosted by several of the Oxford colleges (venues include St Hugh’s, Oriel, Balliol and St Edmund Hall) each bringing together a wonderful mix of interesting people all connected by their love of OHS. Our lunch this year will be at Balliol and we would be delighted to see all our legacy pledgers there.
