    What it’s like

    Founded in 1930, the school moved in 1939 to its present site on Headington Hill, a mile or so from the city centre. There is a steady building programme and good modern facilities of all kinds. Modern buildings harmonise with Victorian houses in 12 acres of grounds with beautiful gardens. Christian principles are fundamental to the life and work of the school. It is the only girls’ Roman Catholic independent school which is a lay foundation. There is considerable emphasis on personal attention and tuition and examination results are good. Music is strong; half the girls learn one or more instruments. Art is very strong throughout the school; a range of options is available in design, textiles and ceramics. Drama is enthusiastically supported with outstanding results. Good sports facilities and a wide range of sport is available; high standards are attained with regular representation at city, county and regional level. Many girls are involved in local community service. The school has an outstanding record in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Extensive use is made of Oxford’s cultural amenities.
