Oxford High School is a leading independent day school based in the heart of Oxford for girls aged 4 to 18 years. It was founded in 1875, making it the city’s oldest girls’ school.
Oxford High School regularly ranks as one of the country’s highest achieving independent schools in terms of examination results. The school was ranked first in the South East in a Sunday Times survey based on exam results and “value for money”. In the 2011 examinations it was ranked amongst the top 20 independent schools nationwide for GCSE results and the best performing girls’ school in the A Levels.
In 2006, the school became the first in Oxfordshire to make Mandarin a compulsory subject. Pupils will study it at least a year and can choose to either continue or learn another language.
