Currently based in two large Edwardian buildings in leafy Summertown, north Oxford, within easy walking distance of each other and the Senior School, Oxford High Preparatory and Pre-Preparatory are proud to offer a personalised, positive and inspiring start to life at school.


We believe that the best way for a child to learn is through exploring the world around her with confidence and curiosity. Our girls are given the time and freedom to discover their strengths, their passions and the person they are becoming. Our classrooms and outdoor spaces are happy, nurturing environments, that echo the sound of laughter and inspiration, discovery and delight.

There is a sense of pride that comes with being an OHS girl, as well as being part of an extended family. Our girls are inspired by their learning and kind-hearted in their support of each other. Their teachers are proud to guide them through the first important steps of a lifelong journey of learning, that will see them flourish, not only in the classroom, but far beyond it. We encourage their independence in the knowledge that the questions they ask now will be the solutions of the future.
