Headmistress

Welcome to Headington School.

There has never been a more exciting time for your daughter to join our wonderful, vibrant community.

We want to give all our girls the best possible start in life and that means inspiring them with our teaching to progress and learn every single day they are in our care. We understand how important your daughter and her education are and my promise to you is that we will create a world of opportunities for her, both in the classroom and beyond.

Our students leave us with outstanding academic credentials, but this is not the only way in which we help them to achieve great things. Girls make friendships that last a lifetime and leave us with broad horizons and a global outlook. Our pastoral care, extensive extra-curricular programme and the many opportunities we provide for your daughter to explore the ‘real world’ beyond the school gates all help her to develop into a self-assured and capable young woman, possessing the academic and life skills to fulfil her potential.

Our students benefit from the classrooms and facilities in the Diamond Jubilee Building which opened in September 2012, adding to our existing outstanding modern facilities which include a purpose-built Theatre and state-of-the-art Music School. In 2015 we opened our new Dance and Fitness Centre with facilities to rival the best in schools in Europe and part of our vision for accessible 'Sport for All' at Headington.

Whilst you will get a glimpse of school life from our website, this will never be a substitute for a personal visit. We would love you to come and see our students and teachers in action to find out what makes our school really special. Please contact us to arrange an individual visit, or come along to one of our regular open days.

I look forward to welcoming you and your daughter to Headington School.

Warm regards

Mrs Caroline Jordan, MA Oxon
