School profile

Didcot Girls' School

We are an outstanding school both in terms of Ofsted grading and what it feels like to work and learn here. We have high standards in everything we do and we match this to a welcoming, supportive culture that ensures staff and students alike have a great experience every day.

Leadership, community and commitment are key values for us and we are keen to offer school experience to anyone who shares our ethos and wants to see what a career in education might hold for them.
