Oxford School of English Junior Summer School, Oxford, Oxfordshire

Locations

Our Junior Summer School provides a memorable experience for students from all over the world, blending first-class English language tuition with masses of fun in a unique environment. Now in its fourteenth year the Summer School has been hugely successful, gaining an international reputation and each year attracting hundreds of students from across the world.

Our team of teachers are all qualified native speakers who follow a dynamic and interactive course.

Students are aged 12-18 and come to us either as part of a group or individually. Once here they soon make friends with other students from the very diverse range of nationalities that visit us each year.

As well as our Junior Summer School, we have a busy main school which is open all year-round for groups and individual students of all ages. We work hard to create a fun, friendly and welcoming environment for students so that they can get the most out of their stay with us. We pride ourselves on a high level of care and attention to detail, and are always on hand to answer any questions or help in any way we can. Students settle in quickly and many return year after year. We provide everything students need to have an enjoyable and productive stay in Oxford.

Students just need to choose their accommodation, course and social programme. We are looking forward to another successful year for our Junior Summer School in 2015 and we hope you will join us in the beautiful city of Oxford!

The Junior Summer School is based at Magdalen College School, located a short walk along the High Street from the centre of Oxford. Dating from 1480, Magdalen College School is one of the most successful schools in England and was voted Independent School of the Year in both 2004 and 2008. Originally founded as part of Magdalen College and Oxford University, the school educated the sixteen boy choristers who sang in the college choir. The school retains many traditions from its rich history, for example students play King Ball, a sport unique to the school and there's a bell ringing in the college Chapel. The world-class education has produced famous alumni such as St Thomas More, William Tyndale, Cardinal Wolsey and, more recently, Sam Mendes, director of the James Bond film ‘Skyfall’. Surrounded by the Oxford University colleges, it's also just a short walk to the residential accommodation. Students are accompanied at all times by an Activity Leader.

In addition to our General English course, we offer exam preparation courses (Trinity and IELTS) with Academic English, as well as University Preparation courses with academic writing.

The school has twenty fully-equipped classrooms with internet, projectors and whiteboards to provide a variety of ways to learn. With average class sizes of 12 students (and a maximum of 15) you will receive plenty of attention from the teacher and lots of opportunities to ask questions. Classes have a mix of nationalities and are organised based on their level and ability. In 2014, we welcomed students from 30 different countries to our Junior Summer School, providing a place where you can mix with and learn about many cultures.
