Open Events and Admissions

We always encourage anyone interested in gaining a place at the school to visit us, for both the Open Evening and a School Tour. Due to ongoing Coronavirus restrictions we will update this page at the start of the Autumn Term when we have more information regarding these events.


In the meantime, we hope that the resources below will help to give you a flavour of what life is like at Didcot Girls' School.


To find out what life is like at Didcot Girls' School and to hear from Miss Georgina Littler, Headteacher, please watch our Welcome Video.

Secondary Schools Application Procedure

We hold an Open Evening and series of Open Mornings every year in September and October to which all prospective families are welcome to attend. We also hold an evening, with St Birinus Boys’ School, for potential applicants into our mixed sixth form in November. Information about all of these events is clearly signed on our website well in advance of the events themselves.
