Oxfordshire is the most rural county in the South East of England. The county has a population of approximately 635,500 and, like other areas of England, is home to an increasing number of people aged over 75. Over half the population live in towns or villages of less than 10,000 people.

The Oxon LEA (Local Education Authority) sets the term dates for all community, community special and voluntary controlled schools. Governing bodies of foundation and voluntary aided schools are responsible for setting their own term dates.

Oxfordshire has consistently high levels of employment and the resident workforce is amongst the most highly qualified in the country.

Key industries include: international publishing, high-tech business and biotechnology, car manufacture, motorsport. The county is a popular tourist destination for its rural beauty, numerous market towns and Oxford City itself, which has earned a global reputation for its academic and architectural splendour.

Oxford: What to see and where to go on a vacation.

Shoppers in Oxford head to the High Street for a great selection of outlets, including a traditional tobacconist and an organic remedy store. Cowley Road is a great place to pick up some designer bargains, and for a true thrift shopping experience, the Bicester Village Outlet just outside the city is a fantastic discount outlet location with everyone's favorite brands. Templar's Square is great for indoor retail shopping, and if you're taking a hire car, make use of the park and ride system to ensure you don't struggle to find somewhere safe to leave your vehicle.

Explore Oxford with all the family.

Oxford has so much to see in this small area that you'll be spending a lot of time on your feet. Make sure you plan in advance because you don't want to miss any of these superb locations:

Blenheim Palace – birthplace of Winston Churchill and open to visitors

Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens – great for a day out with kids

The Ashmolean – one of the county's most famous art galleries and museums

Carfax Tower – 13th century remains of the ancient church of St Martin. Carfax Tower is located at the north-west corner of Carfax. The Tower is all that remains of St. Martin's Church and is now owned by the Oxford City Council.

Tours of BMW Group Plant Oxford are available for schools. However, we regret that children under 14 are not permitted on site for safety reasons.

Oxford University – wander through the many buildings and colleges

Sheldonian Theatre – built by Sir Christopher Wren and home to dramatic works

White Horse Hill – the image of a horse so large it can only be seen from the air
