The road is the location of the Dragon School, a well-known preparatory school. The second headmaster, Charles Cotterill Lynam (known as the "Skipper"), took a building lease on land to the southeast of Bardwell Road in 1893. In 1894, Lynam's Oxford Preparatory School was established on this site. £4,000 was quickly raised through subscriptions from local parents for the erection of new school buildings. The school moved from its previous location at 17 Crick Road within a year. The choice of its new location proved to be a wise one and the school has prospered as the Dragon School on this site to the present day.
