Oxford Semester Programme

This comprehensive programme combines traditional academic subjects with exciting options that are not normally available at school. The programme has been designed for International Students who might be seeking credits to complete High School, or who are on a Gap Year or at College looking for a quality 'study-abroad' experience. Teaching is based upon the Tutorial System employed by Oxford and Cambridge, with tuition taking place on a one-to-one basis or in small mini groups (3-5 students). Please contact us for full details.

Holiday Revision Courses

We offer intensive revision courses for GCSE, IGCSE, AS, A2 and IB during the school holidays and half-term breaks through our partner organisation Oxford Science Studies. The courses prepare students for public exams, deepen their understanding of any given subject, improve exam technique and give them a head start for the next school year. The Easter and Summer courses are one to three weeks long, and can be attended on a residential or non-residential basis. At Christmas, there are courses at the end of December and beginning of January, both of which can be attended on a residential basis. Half term courses can be attended on a single day basis, up to the length of the whole course, on a non-residential basis.

Oxford Summer Academy

The Oxford Summer Academy is a unique cultural and academic programme for 16-19 year old international students who wish to experience at first hand what it is like to study at Oxford University. These residential programmes are held every July at St Edmund Hall, Oxford University, and are lead by tutors and graduates of Oxford University and other leading universities across the world. For full details and booking enquiries please visit Oxford Summer Academy.

Boarding School Preparation

Our boarding school preparation programme allows students to settle into the UK and grow accustomed to the routines and expectations of a British educational system before embarking on their longer-term boarding school path. When students leave us to move onto their boarding school, they are more confident about the British way of life and less likely to feel alienated or encounter cultural difficulties than students who arrive directly in their new school.
