Dragon School

This big, buzzy, hugely popular Oxford powerhouse has everything youngsters could want. There are enough pupils for everyone to find their tribe and yet somehow, it retains a small school feel that nurtures and celebrates the individual, generating top-notch results without pressure. Located down a quiet side street in leafy north Oxford, Dragon School is sandwiched between a clutch of university colleges, and isn’t far from Oxford High School and Teddies. It doesn’t have a long driveway or grand façade; instead, its school buildings meld with the residential ones. Pupils...

    Bursaries
    The school aims to award up to five bursary places to pupils entering Year 4 each year. There are currently 26 bursary recipients in the school, and the award remains in place throughout the child’s time at the Dragon, with the level of fee reduction based on the particular circumstances of each applicant. The school looks at both financial criteria and the onward trajectory of any potential recipient, and the bursary committee will make awards to those most likely to benefit from the opportunities on offer. 

    They also offer discounts on full boarding fees to children of employees of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, the UN, and of those serving in the armed forces.
