    Yes, it is possible for students to do laundry on site with the help of our staff. We recommend students bring enough clothes for a 2-week stay, the programme is busy and finding time to do laundry can often be difficult. We also recommend that students label all their clothes prior to arrival.
  14. What clothes should students bring to the summer programme?

    British weather can be unpredictable! We recommend everyday comfortable clothes to wear to lessons and clothing suitable for sports and activities. It often rains (even in the summer!) so definitely something waterproof and warm is advised.

    The residential accommodation at Wychwood School is a classic boarding school style accommodation. Students are accommodated in single sex dormitories with up to 5 people per room. If you have any sharing requests please communicate this information prior to arrival, we cannot guarantee your request, but we will try to accommodate requests if possible.
