Head Teacher’s Philosophy

During her time here, we help each girl discover what it means to be happy, as this is the foundation upon which lifelong success is built. Girls finish their school days being able to deal effectively with the adult world into which they emerge, knowing that they will always be part of the Wychwood community.

Outstanding Characteristics

A current parent says: ‘Wychwood is an amazing school. It is caring, positive and very much about working with the individual. The staff work closely to bring out the best in every girl. If you’re after a school that genuinely cares for each child and looks after them as an individual, challenging them and finding their true potential – then you’ve found it.’
