We Are


If you’re seeking an education which fosters Kindness, Courage and Respect, builds children’s confidence, embraces fun, and emphasises curiosity and freedom of thinking over everything else, then the Dragon could be for you.

A School of Opportunities

Here, we celebrate the individual and the power and sense of identity that comes from being part of a group. Our dedicated teachers do inspirational work every day helping students explore their passions and find new ones. 

We’re excited that you’re interested in joining us, and we’re here to help you discern whether the Dragon is the right choice for your child or children and your family.

Our Admissions Process

The usual points of entry to the Pre-Prep are Reception (4+) and Year 3 (7+). 

The key entry points for both day and boarding pupils in the Prep School are Year 4 (8+) and Year 5 (9+). Some children also join in Year 6 or Year 7 as they prepare for boarding at senior school. 

The Dragon is very much an international community. As well as advising local families, we’re very experienced in helping those who are relocating to Oxfordshire and the surrounding counties, as well as those coming from overseas.



Complete a simple form and we’ll send you our prospectus.



Discover the school at one of our Open Mornings, or by booking an individual tour.



Complete our registration process to move ahead with the process.



Spend some time at the school and get to know the teachers.



Your child is now a Dragon and their adventures can begin!
