About Wychwood School, Oxford
Established in 1897, Wychwood School in Oxford is an independent day and boarding school for girls aged 11 to 18 in the heart of Oxford that seeks to deliver academic excellence through the creativity of thought.
The school has a long and rich history of educating girls. From the beginning, our founders had a clear vision of what a small girls’ school should be and what Wychwood girls could achieve.
Along the way, the school has remained committed to that ethos, celebrated in 2017 with a 120th birthday party attended by 500 alumnae, students and parents.
The school believes that education is about more than just the exams that its pupils take, but it recognises that these exams are their passports for the future, and, therefore, it is taken seriously. Academic life is the backbone of the school day.
Sports and PE are an integral part of school life, and the girls are encouraged to develop a lifelong love of sport and physical activity through the varied sports programme.
There is also a wide-ranging programme of clubs, activities and trips based on the girls’ preferences and requests. Activities happen each week at lunchtime, as well as before and after the school day.
