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. Our teachers’ academic expertise, coupled with the Oxbridge tutorial style, makes the student experience both stimulating and rewarding. Students leave Oxford Royale Academy having developed a range of skills and knowledge that will be of use beyond exams. 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 teachers come from the UK’s top institutions including the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and London. Each teacher is qualified to Master’s level and has been hand picked by Oxford Royale Academy. Our teachers have excellent academic credentials, and have been selected based on their ability to enthuse, communicate and motivate students.

They all have a passion for the subject that they teach and are united by the desire to help students succeed. They engage with pupils both in class and outside of class, eating alongside their pupils, joining in with activities such as supper clubs and newspaper classes and sharing their experience on a daily basis.
