An International Summer School Experience

At Oxford Royale, we pride ourselves on our international mix, and students on all of our programmes are encouraged to learn about each other’s cultures and backgrounds – both in lessons and while partaking in our rich and varied extracurricular programme.

Those on our Junior English Programme enjoy shared excursions and activities with native and fluent English speakers, boosting their conversational ability.

Students enjoy a junior summer camp the ORA way

From fascinating classroom projects to excursions around the UK, we ensure every child’s timetable is action-packed and full of fun.

Just like our programmes for older students, our Junior Summer School seeks to foster a love of learning, paired with a sense of belonging to the ORA community; many students make friends on their ORA summer course and then return year on year to catch up and try out new subjects or locations.

A variety of inspiring junior summer school courses

Our Academic Discovery (ages 8-10) and Academic Discovery Plus (ages 11-12) programmes explore the Arts and Sciences through a different ‘key question’ every week. As well as our academic programmes we offer a junior ‘learn English’ course enabling students aged 8-12 to develop their language skills in a fully immersive environment.

The Junior English Programme is differentiated by ability and integrates perfectly with our extra-curricular activities, giving non-native speakers a real head start in the language, perfect if they wish to study in an English-speaking country in the future.
