School Info

The Box BuildingThe Henry Box School is a successful, over-subscribed 11 -18 comprehensive school attractively situated beside the green in the centre of Witney. We have around 1400 students on roll and admit 225 into each year group in Years 7 - 11. Admissions are controlled by the Oxfordshire Local Authority and priority for admission is given to pupils living in the catchment area of the school. Entry to the Sixth Form is subject to performance at GCSE.

Our commitment to all students fulfilling their potential is demonstrated by a broad curriculum for all, with additional support for students with special needs, and those with particular talents. The school achieves very high academic standards as well as offering a rich and varied extra-curricular programme including residential experiences for all students, foreign exchanges, concerts, dramatic productions, sports teams and after school clubs.

Pastoral support for students is based on a Tutor system, supported by Year Heads and Key Stage Co-ordinators. We have clear policies and high expectations for all students. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Henry Box and will be pleased at any time to discuss the many educational and other opportunities provided for our students and the community we serve.
