We're so looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow for the Town and Gown 10K!

We have 55 runners this year and so for anyone who fancies coming along to support Team Headington, we would love to see you; it’s a fantastic way to spend a Sunday morning and the weather forecast is looking good! We have 15 Prep School pupils running in the 3k run which starts at 9:15am, with all other runners taking part in the 10k run which starts at 10am. Here is the link to the Oxford Town & Gown website which includes the running route.

The Headington School gazebo will be pitched opposite the Event Village and we plan to take a group photo of runners and supporters at 8:45am. Everyone is welcome to join us after the run for a celebratory drink and some light refreshments, so please do join us if you can.

The Whole School Photograph (with over 1000 pupils and staff) was taken on the field on Tuesday morning, the first in seven years!

Headington girls organised another incredible fundraiser last week as the Hive gallery was turned into a giant games room!

the girls have enjoyed the second week of the amazing new kitchens! We popped in to take a few photos of them making shortbread and chocolate cheesecake 😋

This week we said a huge thank you to our outgoing Head Girls and prefects, and welcomed our new team.

More than 20 members of the L6 were vying for a prefect position but after impressing staff and fellow students, Trinity St John Cox, Zara Jones and Alexandra Cutmore have been selected as Head Girl, Head of Day and Head of Boarding respectively. They took over the baton from outgoing trio Sophia Brehm, Tinu Baker and Anna McVeigh.

This year there will be 16 prefects in all, with Trin, Zara and Alexandra joined by Emma-Annalise as Chapel Prefect, Jessica R as Wellbeing Prefect, Khalidah as Diversity and Inclusion Prefect, Ellie as Charities Prefect, Kyla as Social Prefect and Ulyana leading U3, Sunniva L4, Chapelle U4, Sofija L5, Jessica T U5, Sally L6 and Emma U6. Each was given a notebook full of tips, advice and memories from previous postholders.
