Headington School

Headington Road, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX3 7TD

Why Headington?

Academic excellence – consistently ranked in top 50 UK schools, with girls typically achieving higher grades than their predictions on entry
Choice – more than 20 options at GCSE and around 30 subjects to choose from at A Level
Flexibility – as a day school with boarding, drop off from 7.30 am and collect up until 6.00 pm, or stay overnight as an occasional boarder
Facilities – state-of-the-art Library, Dance and Fitness Centre, Theatre, Music School and Art School add to fully equipped, digitally-enabled classrooms
Location and Travel to school – set in 23 acres a mile from the centre of beautiful and historic Oxford, a seat of learning for over nine centuries. We have excellent transport links, including our 11 shared bus routes, two school minibuses and the Oxford Tube bus to London stopping at the school gates

An all-girls environment with ample opportunity to interact with boys (from shared bus routes to formals); and girls excelling in STEM subjects. The latter is driven by Head Caroline Jordan, an Oxford Earth Sciences graduate and physics teacher, whose enthusiasm is infectious: one alumna taught by her is now an F1 McLaren engineer. That’s not to say these pupils aren’t artistic. Last year’s foray into Brechtian theatre with The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui was hugely impressive, as was the visit from Ai-Da, the world’s first ultra-realistic AI artist. From September 2021, pupils will be painting, sculpting and designing in ‘The Hive’ Creativity and Innovation Centre.

Headington School

An all-through school covers junior and senior education. It may start at 3 or 4, or later, and continue through to 16 or 18. Some all-through schools set exams at 11 or 13 that pupils must pass to move on.

Overseas candidates must sit an examination for entry at any age, and this will incur a fee of £250. Where appropriate, an interview may also be arranged in the candidate's home country.

ISEB Pre-Test, CE or school’s own entrance exam
