We aim to build strong foundations for success – inside and outside the classroom – throughout girls’ time at school. We strive for all children to feel happy, safe and confident when learning in order to be able to explore, question, investigate, communicate, persevere and collaborate.

Life at Cornflower Nursery

Cornflower Nursery is part of a fantastic supportive community at Headington School. Throughout her time in Nursery, your daughter will get to know and be inspired by older children, take part in whole school activities such as assemblies and learn what it feels like to be part of a school with a fascinating history and an exciting future. At the same time, the Nursery is discrete from the rest of the School and has a warm and caring family atmosphere, perfect for your daughter’s first introduction to the world of education.
