The first recorded instance of girls wanting to become involved with the Scout Movement in Oxford came in May 1909, when the Vicar of Headington applied to the Scout Executive Committee for recognition of a group of Girl Scouts. The application was refused, but Girl Guide groups continued to flourish, and by 1910, a local Oxford newspaper was reporting that there were about 60 Girl Guide groups in the region. In 1911, Mrs Sanderson Furniss was appointed the first County Commissioner and by 1917/18, there were 326 Guides in Oxfordshire.
Oxfordshire now has:
- 11 divisions
- 41 districts
- 71 Rainbow Units,
- 164 Brownie Units,
- 90 Guide Units,
- 17 Ranger/Senior Sections Units,
- a number of Trefoil Guilds
