Games & The Arts
Tudor is proud of its extensive co-curricular programme. Over recent years it has developed a series of activities that now numbers in excess of 180 and spans the full day, from early morning until after supper, seven days a week. The breadth of choice allows the girls to work as a member of a team, to lead others, compete at county level and beyond, or just have fun developing new interests with their friends. Where possible they run multiple sessions of activities to enable all girls to access the wide variety of clubs on offer.
Whether a full boarder or day girl, at Tudor, the aim of the pastoral care is to help parents’ daughters develop into grounded young women with the self-respect to become all that they want to be, the resilience to withstand the pressures of modern life and to face the challenges that come their way head-on.
Tudor Hall students achieve outstanding A-level results with all students achieving excellent outcomes and going on to a range of top universities.
Head Teacher’s Philosophy
The academic results are excellent, produced by young women who have been selected for places at the school not just on their academic ability but also their personal strengths. The girls are not of one type and this creates a community where everybody recognises and celebrates its members as individuals.
Staff work with pupils to ensure that each one is encouraged and supported to do her best. The girls are ambitious and determined to make the most of the many opportunities in school and further afield. The recent introduction of the Aim Higher programme across the school year groups affords the girls a range of academic opportunities beyond the classroom, allowing them to pursue their intellectual curiosity whilst developing psychological and physical resilience.
As Headmistress I never cease to be amazed by the achievements of our pupils in all areas of school life but what still impresses me on a daily basis is how they genuinely care for members of the Tudor community as well as those in the outside world. They live out the school motto ‘Habeo ut dem’, I have in order that I may give.
Tudor Hall is unique in so many ways. It is a thriving, vibrant, full boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18, based in Wykham Park near Banbury, which definitely ‘punches above its weight’.
