About the School
Oxford High School is an independent day school which is the oldest girls’ school in Oxford and a member of the GDST. OHS students are also twice as likely to receive a Cambridge offer as students from other UK leading girls’ schools, as suggested by UCAS statistics.
With the strong links to Oxford University and the Oxford University Hospitals, OHS is also able to host visiting speakers from across the entire academic spectrum, and for students to extend their knowledge beyond the curriculum.
