Dr Philip Hills, Headmaster of Oxford High School, commented on the 2018 A Level Results:

I am delighted for and proud of every one of our Year 13. I have no doubt these young women are set to change the world with their ambitions which range from Natural Sciences at Cambridge to Archaeology at UCL. What I have found particularly interesting is the sheer volume of girls studying languages at a time when, sadly, so many schools particularly in the state sector are having to cut back on language teaching. 25% of our Year 13 at OHS took a language A Level and 14% are now heading to university for Modern Languages degrees. A handful of girls are going on from their Latin and Greek A Levels to study Classics, so our school motto seems as apposite as ever – Ad Lucem!”
