One in four OHS girls travel into the city from surrounding areas, taking advantage of the bus, coach and train connections into Oxford.
Oxford Schools’ Bus Partnership Network
We currently a member of the Oxford Schools’ Bus Partnership network. This provides our students with access to eleven different routes covering the Oxfordshire area, providing reliable transport for families from Bicester in the north to Reading and Goring in the south, Lewknor in the east and Faringdon to the west. Visit the OSBP website to view the full network and to reserve your daughter’s place.
From September 2023 the OSBP service will cease to operate. We are delighted to confirm that we are launching our own minibus service to support current and future pupils, from Year 1 to Year 13, with all their transport needs to and from Oxford High School. This service will be run in conjunction with Vectare, who manage minibus routes across the GDST.
The school will operate one service each morning, and then two services each evening. We will be running late services to a number of key hubs so to allow pupils to be involved in activities.
We have been working hard over the last few months with Vectare, to determine the most suitable routes for the OHS community (based on post codes and survey data). We have produced a guide to outline the new service, we have tried to create a network that works for the majority of pupils and we would welcome your feedback if you feel this is not the case. The guide is designed to operate as a consultation document, and we recognise that there will need to be changes to routes and timetables depending on demand. We will be collecting feedback between now and 31 January 2023, so we can look to make changes. Please complete this consultation form.
London to Oxford
There are good train and coach services to Oxford. Oxford has its main station in the centre of the city and now has a new Oxford to London Marylebone rail link serving the north of the city at Oxford Parkway station, with services running to London Marylebone in under an hour. For up to date information on this new service, visit Chiltern Railways for news of the new timetable. Both train stations have public bus services which serve Summertown where Oxford High School is situated.
Girls who live in the city typically choose to walk, cycle or take the city buses to school. Others get a lift with family members.
