For a better future
This is a very intensive and high quality summer spring winter and autumn English Language Learning camp in UK with campus accommodation for teenagers.
25 hours a week with the teachers.
Each course is designed to meet a precise set of learning objectives.
A maximum of 8 students per class.
Students are taught by a number of different teachers each day.
A bespoke education structured around:
Accuracy and fluency in the English language
Development of intellectual and social understanding
Knowledge growth in a wide range of subjects
Effective autonomous learning
The acquisition of cultural and social literacy
Personal growth through a broad curriculum of subjects
OISE Newbury is a safe and special place delivering a ‘trajectory education’. As a stepping stone from pupils’ backgrounds towards their ambitions, the course helps potential high-achievers forge their own learning practices in harmony with their personality.
Pupils also learn to think independently.
The academic programme
New language, knowledge and skills in the service of better thinking and becoming a better learner generally. Academically literate pupils can successfully face the challenges of understanding and responding creatively to complex ideas in English and can generate both informed and personal opinions. Over the longer term the programme provides an ideal transition for international pupils into mainstream UK education.
Intensive Exam Skills
These programmes teach exam strategies, for example IELTS and IGCSEs and provide extensive practice tests with feedback against mark schemes so that pupils feel confident going into the exam. Pupils also have dedicated language lessons to ensure they cover the exam vocabulary and grammar.
Pupils develop a confidence founded on genuine improvements in their knowledge and skills, and in increasingly proficient English. Whether a pupil stays for a week, a month, a year or more, the format of individual lessons is similar each week while the specific content and outcomes change. This allows students to establish formative routines to hone their core skills, all the while acquiring broader general knowledge and improving their English.
