Living in Oxford

Live and study in one of the most famous centres of education in the world

Our International School is conveniently located just outside the city centre. We also recently opened our new Arts Centre site with state-of-the-art facilities in Summertown, a 10-minute walk from the main school building. Our extensive gardens offer the perfect place for students to read, relax and socialise. With frequent travel links to London in only an hour, students can also enjoy cultural school excursions to the capital as well as to other key cities throughout the UK. Students can enjoy visiting the city to attend public lectures at the Saïd Business School, take part in sport fixtures at the University of Oxford’s sport facilities, compete in debating competitions at the Oxford Union Society or make the most of the wide range of leisure opportunities on offer including the local museums, galleries, libraries, cinemas, theatres and restaurants.

Living in Oxford is ideal for international students; with two universities and many schools, you will always be surrounded by other young people – both International and British. It is of course one of the most famous cities in the UK – perhaps the world; a small, friendly, beautiful city, full of impressive buildings, green parks and fascinating libraries and museums.


We are delighted to be affiliated with the Oxford Union, a debating society in the heart of Oxford. The Oxford Union has a tradition of hosting some of the world’s most prominent individuals across politics, academia and popular culture. If our students stay on for d’Overbroeck’s Sixth Form, they can purchase a short-term membership to the Oxford Union of one, two, or three terms. With a membership, they will be able to attend events on the Oxford Union’s term card, and have access to their facilities. Memberships can be purchased through the Oxford Union’s website.
