Testimonials

“I just wanted to let you know that my son who attended 1:1 tuition in October 2015 and a group course in March 2016 at OXSS has successfully passed his Cambridge IGCSE's. We are very grateful for the help and motivation he has received from the excellent teachers at your centre which certainly contributed substantially to his success in these exams despite his dyslexia. Thank you again very much. He will certainly come back to OXSS for some IB revision!” Mrs. Germany, Multiple Courses

"Just wanted to say that Bethan found last week extremely helpful, big lift in her confidence, she came back buzzing.  Already talking about opportunities to return next year.  I think the week will really make a difference to her studies and hopefully results." Mr Bristol, Easter 2016

"I thought you might like to know that Charlie, who attended maths and science revision with you last Easter, passed both exams at B grade. We are delighted. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help, pastoral care combined with teaching is something that doesn't always come in one package, thank you very much. I will do my best to spread the word about Oxford Science Studies. Thanks again."  Mrs Derbyshire, Easter 2015

"Max attended your Easter week's French revision course and turned a 'U' grade mock AS into a 'B' grade in the actual AS. He'd lost confidence in his French, chiefly by not having grasped some of the basics. The tutoring you provided allowed him to ask the stupid questions without embarrassment and cover his knowledge gaps. When he got back to school he was firing on all cylinders. Please can you pass on the terrific result to his tutor. Thank you and we will no doubt be seeing you again at Easter."

"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

"Just wanted to give you some feedback regarding the summer school course - I was impressed from the very beginning with the communication and organisation, I was quite confident that the three boys would find the course useful but I had no idea they would find it so enjoyable.  My son had a very good rapport with the three tutors and he felt each one had offered him both personal and valuable tutoring.  lt was a great week for all three of them.  Thank you for your help in organising it." Mrs M, Summer 2015

"We are so grateful for the opportunity you provided for our son. Many thanks for looking after him, he loved his stay. He said his one week learning from you is equivalent to school's six months. Proud of your establishment." Mr Muktadir, Summer 2015

"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
