Our Aims and Values

Oxford High School is part of the Girls’ Day School Trust.

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.

All GDST schools share a common set of values that support our aims.
