About Wychwood School
Wychwood School is located in the city of Oxford, and is an independent secondary school for girls aged 11-18. First established in 1897 upon Christian principles, the school has around 120 pupils, making it significantly smaller than the average secondary school. The school accepts both day and boarding pupils, with boarders making up a smaller minority of the school roll. Wychwood can boast of a wide range of modern teaching and recreational facilities.

Values and Vision
Wychwood School sets a high academic standard for its pupils. Admission for prospective pupils involves an entrance test, with entrants into the school sixth form being required to take examinations in whichever A Levels they are looking to study. As well as its high-quality curriculum, Wychwood takes great pride in the personal and spiritual development of its pupils, and to this end offers a range of extra-curricular activities, including numerous international field trips, performing arts opportunities and sports. The school also seeks to create a strong sense of community among its students, particularly boarders, and as such encouraged older boarders to support new students.
“The teaching methods used are devised to enable good progress for pupils by encouraging them to develop skills and understanding, and acquire new knowledge. Time is managed effectively. Teaching is characterised by well-planned lessons that take into account individual needs and prior attainment, including for those with SEND, English as an additional language (EAL) and the more able pupils.”
