About Headington School

Headington School is an independent girls’ school in Headington, Oxford, England, founded by a group of evangelical Christians in 1915. The Good Schools Guide called Headington “A delightful school, [which] nurtures and entertains its pupils while at the same time achieving excellent academic results… fun and stimulating to be at.”

Headington School was founded in 1915 by a group of evangelical Christians to provide “a sound education for girls to fit them for the demands and opportunities likely to arise after the war”. It started at Headington Lodge on Osler Road with just ten boarding and eight-day girls. As the school rapidly expanded after the war, more buildings were bought and added to the school.

In 1920, Davenport House, one of the current boarding houses, (on the corner of London Road and Pullens Lane) was taken over by the school. The house had a two-acre garden and another 19 acres of farmland attached stretching as far east as the White Horse pub. The main school then moved to its current building, built in the neo-Georgian style, in 1930. Chiang Yee, “The Silent Traveller”, describes it as having an “atmosphere of spacious dignity”. In 1942 it was registered as an educational charity, in recognition of the benefits that it provides to its pupils and the wider community.
