Welcome & Introduction

Welcome to Magdalen College School and to our website.

Our forward-looking school is very proud of its long and distinguished history.  An academy, since 2013, Magdalen is state-funded and provides mainstream education to young people from age 11 to 18.  Our founders, Magdalen College Oxford, and Magdalen College School in Oxford maintain their close working relationship with us and both are represented on our board of trustees and governors.

We provide a high quality of education to pupils from age 11 to 18 through a wide range of academic subjects.  Pupils who attend Magdalen achieve well because they work hard and are well-taught.  Our teaching staff are well-qualified and have the expertise to work with the wide range of pupils that attend our school.  Many go on to the very best universities in the country and to take up apprenticeships and other training.  Our aim is to ensure that, whatever their chosen future, they are well supported in getting there.

We take great pride in the work we do to support pupils’ individual personal development; we believe in educating the whole person, not just prepare them for exams.  This takes a number of forms and includes the wide range of extra-curricular activities and educational visits, our “Extended Learning Days” and our first-rate pastoral provision.

Whether you are considering joining our school as a pupil, parent or member of staff, we hope that you will enjoy browsing our website and that you will find everything that you need to know.  If you need any additional information about our school please contact us.
