Oxford is a very small city (you can cycle to the other side in a lunch hour) and therefore, Larkrise pupils walk to most external activities. For example:-
- To the University of Oxford sports ground (where Roger Bannister ran the first under-4 minute mile) on Iffley Road for special events, swimming lessons and sports days.
- To the internationally renowned Ashmolean Museum, Pitt Rivers Museum and Natural History Museum, and the Botanic Garden in the city centre.
- To the local church and mosque.
- To local secondary schools, St Gregs and Oxford Spires Academy, for special events, Master Classes, sporting activities, etc.
Also close by are the Donnington Doorstep and Florence Park Family Centre and Oxford City Farm.
