Welcome to The Henry Box School
We are a popular, over subscribed 11-18 comprehensive school providing a high quality education in the market town of Witney. Our school was founded in 1660 by Henry and Mary Box and was for over 300 years the Grammar School for Witney. On 1st June 2012 we gained Academy status. The Latin motto of The Henry Box School is "Studio Floremus" translated as "By study we flourish", a philosophy we continue to promote to this day. We are proud of our tradition and excited about our future.
We aim to provide a safe, happy and secure environment for our students. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
The Henry Box School has had Specialist Language College Status since 2001 and was the first school in Oxfordshire to gain a second specialism in science/maths in 2006.
Ofsted recognised the high standards across the school in its 2010 inspection report, judging many aspects as outstanding. Inspectors commented that Henry Box School is a school 'to which students and staff alike are proud to belong' and where 'students develop admirable personal qualities'. Building on our traditional values of respect, self-discipline, responsibility and hard work, we at Henry Box encourage students to aim for excellence academically, and to develop as individuals socially and personally.
