Oxford House School of English was founded in 1983. Since then, a large number of students from a great range of countries, as well as some small specialist groups, have studied English at Oxford Language School.
School offers a high-quality and effective service to students, many of whom have commented on the friendly yet purposeful atmosphere at the school and on the way in which the different aspects of the programme interrelate and complement one another.
The school is situated in the large village of Wheatley, just a short bus ride (25 minutes) from the centre of Oxford – a tranquil setting with excellent access to the cultural attractions of the city. School is located in a beautifully restored listed building on the main street through the village, near to shops, cafes and local pubs.
Lessons are taught by dedicated and professional teachers, and the school has excellent self-study resources, a varied social and sports programme, weekend excursions and superior quality accommodation nearby with local host families.
Students appreciate the fact that the school remains open for some evenings during the week, so that it becomes rather like a club outside school hours. Students are able to use the self-study and leisure facilities at almost any time and meet their friends, relax and play pool or table tennis, watch a film, make tea and coffee and use the student kitchens. All this is provided free of charge, so students do not have to spend extra money in the evenings or at weekends.
