School Policies

Dragon School has a number of policies which are regularly reviewed and updated when necessary. The most important ones can be accessed via the links below.

Any of these documents may be viewed at the school on request. Please contact the School Office at either the Prep or Pre-Prep site, the Head’s EA or the Compliance Officer. You can also request to view the following:

  • Particulars of the school’s academic performance during the preceding school year, including the results of any public examinations
  • A copy of the report of any inspection carried out under sections 108 or 109 of the Education and Skills Act 2008 or section 87(1) of the Children Act 1989

The Dragon School Trust Ltd is a company registered under the Companies Act 1985 (number 524331) and a registered charity (number 309676). It is a company limited by guarantee.

The Dragon School Trust Ltd’s primary object is to run the Dragon School, Oxford, though the company’s objects allow it to run any other school. The company was first incorporated 6 October 1953. Revised Memorandum and Articles were adopted 8 November 2008.

The Governors of the Dragon School are also trustees of the charity, directors and members of the company. New governors are appointed by the members of the company (who are congruent with the board of governors). Governors hold office for six years, whereupon they may be reappointed. Governors retire at the age of 70 unless a Special Resolution is passed to allow continuation in office. There may be no more than 20 and no fewer than seven governors. The liability of the members is limited to £1 each. If you are interested in finding out more about becoming a Governor, please contact the Bursar, Martin Johnson.

All correspondence to the Chair of Governors should be sent:

The school invests the whole of any surpluses generated in its buildings, infrastructure and equipment. The latest accounts are available on request from the Bursary or may be seen online, together with other summary information, from the Charity Commission Website.
