  • On the right just to the north of the New Theatre is St Mary Magdalen School for Girls
  • The large school to the south of George Street and west of New Inn Hall Street is Oxford Boys' High School
  • Two Wesleyan Schools are behind New Inn Hall Street Methodist Church
  • To the south is the Central Girls' School, now part of St Peter's College.
