About Headington School

Located in the city of Oxford, Headington School is an independent school for girls. Established in 1915, the school was founded upon traditional Christian principles. Headington School is split across two sites, with one serving the upper school for pupils aged 13-18, and the second serving as a prep school for younger girls aged 3-13. The two sites are very close to each other, and are governed by the same body. Over the years, the school has seen extensive redevelopment and modernisation on both of its sites, and can now boast of over 20 acres of land and a range of sporting, teaching and even equestrian facilities.

Values and Vision

Most prospective new students to Headington School are required to attend an introductory open day, and pass an entrance exam. The school sets high standards for entry, and reflects this in its teaching, with students being provided with extensive support and guidance in order to fulfil their potential. Headington also strives for a strong sense of community among its pupils, particularly the minority of pupils residing in the school’s boarding facilities. 

ISI Inspection

“The pupils’ personal development is excellent. They behave impeccably, and enjoy positive, respectful relationships with staff and each other. Pupils of different ages and nationalities integrate easily. They are confident, open minded and tolerant. Pupils engage positively with the school’s Christian foundation and talk analytically about religious topics.”
