There is no typical Headington pupil and there is certainly no typical Headington applicant! We welcome applications from girls from a huge range of different academic and cultural backgrounds into our Senior School, locally as day girls and from all over the world into our boarding community. We also welcome applications from girls and boys into our Prep School.
