English school in Oxford

Ancient libraries, Gothic cloisters, and medieval colleges built of golden stone

Our Oxford school

If you love learning, then Oxford was built for you. Just an hour outside London, the “city of dreaming spires” has been nurturing great minds for centuries: from John Locke to Oscar Wilde to Malala Yousafzai. An idyllic boating picnic inspired the creation of Alice in Wonderland, while the Harry Potter films borrowed the city’s magical atmosphere for scenes in Hogwarts.

  • Our Oxford English school is housed in a large Edwardian house in the elegant Summertown area where Tolkien wrote The Lord of the Rings, and only five minutes by bus or bike from the center of town
  • A stylish on-site café serves hot and cold food, including vegetarian and halal options
  • A large private garden is the perfect place for socializing, outdoor games and summer barbecues
  • Arranges weekend trips to famous European cities such as Paris, Amsterdam and Edinburgh
  • Can accept Teen students aged 14-18 in closed groups.
