The centre of Oxford is to be avoided at all times unless you are very familiar with the one-way streets, so whether approaching from north, south, east or west it is better to take the ring road and approach from the roundabout at the north of Banbury Road.

Parking

Parking at Oxford High School is very limited, but there is plentiful parking on the residential streets surrounding. A residents’ parking scheme is in operation with generous parking times (most are three hours) but please check the bay instructions carefully before leaving your car. Please make sure you don’t park across driveways or to restrict access in any way. A paying car-park is available in Summertown, a short walk from the school.

BY TRAIN

There are good train and coach services to the city. On reaching Oxford you can take a taxi to the school. If you ask when you arrive we can book a taxi for your return.

If you would like to to travel by bus from the train station, take buses 14 and 14A  from 6:30 to 18:20. The bus runs  approximately every 30 minutes from 06.17 to 19.14 from the first stop on the Banbury Road after Marston Ferry Road.
