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.
To find out more about the transition process and Year 7 at DGS, please watch this brief video from Mrs Pearl, Transition Leader and Mrs Berrill, Head of Year 7.
Current Year 7 students, Yasmin and Larika, would like to share their experiences of their first year at DGS.
Our A-Z of Information is based on the questions that we are frequently asked by prospective parents, on School Tours and during Open Evening.
Please enjoy reading about school life at DGS in our Panorama publication.
As an Academy, the Governors of Didcot Girls' School adopt the same admission arrangements as those for Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools. All applications for places should be made via the Local Authority on 01865 815175. For more information about the Local Authority Admissions Policy follow this link:
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.
