Testimonials

"I’d just like to say thank you for the Easter revision course that Rachael attended this year to do English and Geography. She achieved an A in both subjects, and according to her teachers she was just 2.5 and 2 marks respectively off an A*. Thanks again for a very fruitful course!" Mrs. D, High Wycombe (Easter 2018)

"Simply put... I went from a D to an A...with only 3 sets of sessions. I was really struggling with maths and I couldn't understand why but just a few days with these courses and I was really understanding how having an excellent teacher can help. All the teaching staff are friendly and clearly love the subject. I remember each one individually and everything they taught us. The environment was very calm and small classes make asking questions easy and getting detailed answers in return. The coordinating staff are always helping out and solving any issues. They're all extremely friendly and supportive. Certainly money well spent as I made my first choice and vastly exceeded what I thought I could achieve!" Sam, Reading, (Multiple Courses - February Half Term, Easter and May Weekends 2018)

"Thank you for sending the reports for each area - did not expect that and was pleasantly surprised. He really enjoyed his experience with Oxford Science Studies and I can not recommend it enough to friends. Hope he comes back in the future for potential A level studies. :)"  Mrs. I, London, Easter 2018

"It gave me an opportunity to re-learn sections that my course teachers hadn't fully explained, or explained in a way that didn't help me. I was far more productive than I would have been at home and gained confidence by seeing lots of exam papers and getting to know the structure. All the tutors were confident with discussing the course material and happy to try several different approaches to help further my understanding. Regards and thanks again for a superb week at Easter. OXSS has made a huge difference to her confidence and ability to apply her knowledge of content to the exam questions." Mrs. F, Cheltenham, Easter 2018

"I would like to thank you and your colleagues for the most fantastic experience that our Son has enjoyed in Oxford.  The first thing he said to me on getting into the car was that he wanted to get a summer job and earn enough money to pay for a week next year himself, it had been that good!" Mr. M, England, Easter 2018

"Our son has really enjoyed his stay. He told us that the teachers were fantastic. We would like to thank you all for the good time he has spent and the help in his studies. We are sure he will come back!" Mr. L , Germany, Easter 2018

"Thank you for the feedback and for taking such good care of my son.  His feedback was that he had the time of his life and we can see that he is very inspired about stepping it up with his studies.  As before, your program was impeccable both as an academic experience and a super fun time.  I'm sure we'll be in touch again very soon.  Please extend our best regards & thank yous to his teachers." Mrs. G, Greece, Summer 2017 

"I would like to thank you for working with me, and provide a little bit of feedback: My boys were ecstatic about the high level of tutoring in their classrooms at OXSS. They both were enjoying every day of classes, as well as activities after the school. Lecturers were well prepared. Boys told me that they have never felt as motivated to study . They both learnt a lot in their study subjects, and it was accomplished in a very short time. They found tutorials much superior to that in their school. I think that this is the best outcome I could hope for them." Mr. P, Spain, Summer 2017

"She did really well in her A levels gaining A* Psychology, A Chemistry A Biology and is pursuing a first degree in Physiotherapy and then probably post grad medicine.  She credits the Summer School Course 2016 as playing a large part in this success preparing her extremely well for A2 and providing excellent content, practice and feedback which gave her confidence and a solid grounding.  I think her exact words when she got her results were ‘credit to the tutors at the Summer School, they were brilliant!’ Thank you for your company's contribution to her success." Mrs S, Hong Kong, (Multiple Courses 2016)

"I am so incredibly touched at reading the two reports.  I cannot thank the entire team enough, for an incredibly fruitful week had with OXSS.  On pick up he even asked if he was going back at Easter!  Please pass on my sincere gratitude to all involved.  I am very pleased to hear of his effort, attitude and progress. Mrs. Dorset, Summer 2016

"This is the description our daughter Anna gave of the course she took under your aegis: 'Everything about it was fantastic - the food, the accommodation, the surroundings and the amount I learnt. Chemistry and Biology are among my biggest weaknesses yet I felt I gained most from my teachers in these subjects. I cannot wait to return, I am so grateful for the confidence, and pleasure, the course gave me.' Our thanks are heartfelt."  Mr and Mrs J

"Our son attained the grades needed to study Physics at Sussex and he is now on course to receive a First in his first year exams. Thanks to the courses he attended at Oxford (as well as generally being more diligent in year 13!) he improved his AS grades significantly when he retook them including going from an E to an A in Maths!"  Mrs S

"Thank you a lot for the reports and please send my gratitude and appreciation to the teachers. Reports are extremely useful. Anatoly is going to print them and use as a guide for further study. He loved the course and already asked me to book another one in summer. I have already recommended It to my friend for his children."  Iraida, February Half Term 2018

"He really felt inspired and motivated after attending the sessions last week.  He learnt a lot and has moved forward with his revision and feels more confident."  Mr. G, London, February Half Term 2018

"I must say his grades have improved markedly and last night at his parents' evening his form teacher was extremely positive. So thank you." Mr. J, England, Multiple Courses 2017

"My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the two days and has already noticed the benefit.  She had to complete an essay on respiration and thanks to the extra tuition was able to give a much more detailed response."  Mrs. F, Cheltenham, October Half Term 2017

"I was really impressed by William's response to the classes, he found them really stimulating and enjoyed the personalities of the tutors which added an extra dimension. He's found it has really given him a boost now he’s back at school." Michelle, October Half Term 2017

"Just wanted to say thanks to you and the team as my son got his GCSE results today and he got a 9 in English Literature. He was over the moon and I'm sure in part it was down to the work you did with him. So thanks. Money well spent.  He really had no belief in his ability in English before he came to your sessions but the tutors truly gave him the confidence and belief that he had the knowledge and helped him understand how to plan and create responses to the exam questions. To take him from his 5 in his mocks to a 9 is incredible." Mrs. H, Reading, May Weekends 2017 and other courses.

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for Jacob's amazing learning experience with OXSS.  It's been such a fantastic confidence builder for him and I've been really impressed with the tutors who seemed to have grasped his weak points very quickly.  The system of working through questions and having the feedback has been invaluable as his school teachers have done little of this.” Mrs. London, May Weekends 2017

“We feel our son gained an enormous amount from his sessions with your tutors and his confidence has grown too.  With many thanks for your help with arranging everything.” Mrs. Oxford, May Weekends 2017

“I can honestly say I have never seen my daughter so enthusiastic about a day's study as she was yesterday, when I picked her up! She was positively glowing! She kept on saying "but he actually taught me things, he was brilliant, I really learned new stuff"…She was delighted with the day, the tutor clearly helped her both in terms of knowledge and understanding, but also gave her a bit more confidence in he own ability as well, so it was a great success. We hope she gets the chance to do this again next year, in the second year of her A Level English studies.” Mrs. Newbury, May Weekends 2017
