Oxford is one of the world’s most famous university cities, known as a beautiful, renowned place. Studded with age-old buildings and steeped in history, it maintains the feel of a young city thanks to its large student population. The elegant honey-toned buildings of the university’s colleges, along with the labyrinth of cobbled lanes create a truly majestic atmosphere. The city’s famed spires twirl into the sky above, transporting you back in time to another age.
As a student at Oxford English Academy, you will be exposed to the beauty of this historic city while living in true British suburbia. Our school is situated ideally for you to explore famous landmarks such as the University Church of St Mary on the High Street, the Sheldonian Theatre, the iconic Bodleian Library and the Ashmolean Museum. However, for a great shopping experience you can take a short train ride to the famous Bicester Village and of course London beckons as well!
