  11. What facilities are there on the campuses?

    Our course is held in the beautiful campus of Wychwood Girls’ Boarding School, which was established in 1897. This secure campus contains residential accommodation, classrooms and sports facilities, and is situated on Banbury road very close to heart of Oxford and University Colleges.
  12. If my child is allergic to food and/or other things who do we notify?

    When you enrol your child, we will issue a Parental Consent form where you can let us know about any dietary requirements, allergies or special requests. This form will be issued to you at the time of enrolment and must be completed and returned to us at least 7 days before your child is due to arrive.
  13. How can I communicate with my child during the trip?

    Your child will have free wifi so an internet call is the best and cheapest option. In an emergency call the centre manager and they will put you in touch with your child as soon as possible.
  14. Can my child bring his/her cell phone to the program?

    Yes but they may have to hand it into the teachers during some classes
  15. How much pocket money should my child bring?

    Everything is provided so they shouldn’t need any money but they do go to some of the best shopping locations in the world so discuss with them what you both consider to be a reasonable amount. There is no lockable safe on campus so it is not recommended to send your child with too much cash.
  16. Is there any safe place where my child can leave their valuables?

    They can leave them in the top drawer of their bedrooms and lock their bedroom door. Please speak to the local centre manager if there is a special request.

    Yes, but there will be a small fee (approximately £2.00 per load)

    Everyday clothes to wear to school, loose clothes suitable for sport and definitely something waterproof. The weather in the UK is unpredictable so pack something warm as well.

    In Oxford, the rooms are 4 person, single sex sharing dorms.
  20. Can my child leave the campus anytime?
