Teaching Philosophy and Faculty

Teaching Philosophy

Engaging, personalised teaching is the foundation on which all programmes at Yarnton Manor are built. Our commitment to small class sizes means that the academic needs of each individual student are met. The combined aim of meeting students’ academic goals and ensuring they develop as individuals is at the heart of all of our residential study programmes.

Also at the core of each of our programmes is the idea that learning is not just in the classroom. We supplement each of our programmes with enriching activities that are designed to make students think more deeply about the subjects they are studying. Academic and cultural trips, debates, shared meals and a mix of nationalities are key to the learning process at Oxford Royale Academy. We believe that every student will leave here having grown socially, personally and academically.

Students should feel relaxed, able to ask questions and to challenge and debate with their teachers in class. We take the academic experience of our tutors extremely seriously and are committed to ensuring that our teaching standards are maintained at the highest level.

Tutoring Faculty

Our tutors come from the UK’s top institutions including the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and London. Each tutor has been hand picked by Oxford Royale Academy. The attentive and thorough education students receive at the International Study Centre, ensures  that they progress rapidly. Our tutors enthuse, inspire and provide regular, personalised feedback to their students enabling them to  flourish academically. Their academic expertise and interactive teaching style means that the student experience is both rewarding and stimulating, allowing them to develop a range of skills and knowledge.
