About Didcot Girls' School
Didcot Girls’ School is a secondary academy for girls in Didcot, Oxfordshire. The school is single-sex up to age 16, with a co-educational sixth form. Didcot has around 1200 pupils, around 300 of whom reside in the school sixth form, making both the sixth form and the school itself noticeably larger than average. The school’s sixth form is shared with a local boys’ school, St Birinius School. Both of these schools are members of the Didcot Academy of Schools, a multi-academy trust comprised of schools in the local area, with Didcot Girls’ School’s headteacher also serving as the executive head for the trust.
Values and Vision
Didcot Girls’ School is heavily committed to recognising and maximising the potential of all of its students, and so operated a strong curriculum based around high-quality teaching in core subjects. The school also encouraged students to be outgoing and strong-willed, with a number of opportunities available for them to test their leadership skills, through things such as the School Council and Leadership Ladder. The personal growth of pupils is considered to be a crucial part of their ability to function well in further education or employment when they leave school post-16.
“Teaching is excellent in Years 7 to 11. It is interesting, inspiring and imaginative. In the sixth form, teaching is consistently good and is rapidly improving. The school has a very broad curriculum which meets the needs of pupils very well. Pupils have a wide choice of relevant subject options.”
