Testimonials

"Our daughter, who attended 2 sessions with you earlier this year has had her results...a very big thank you to her tutors... 7 A*'s ,1 A**, and 1 A in her GCSE's...she tells us that it was particularly noticeable that she felt so supported in the subjects that your tutors focussed on...all sciences, so please pass on our congratulations to them for another success they have contributed so much to!!"  Mrs. N, Derbyshire, Multiple Courses 2017

"My daughter got a C in her AS Maths, so can now continue to A2. We are absolutely delighted as her school refused to raise her predicted grade from E. Sadly, many of her peers failed so we know that it was her OXSS courses that made all the difference. In particular she said that she was totally confident when she opened the paper as she knew exactly what to expect and look for." Mrs. Cheltenham, Multiple Courses 2017

"I just wanted to thank you for a really excellent course over the Easter hols. It was everything we had hoped it would be - great education and good fun. He really enjoyed it and is already talking about doing the course again next Easter. What is also really nice is his whole approach to learning has improved - the course gave him confidence in Maths." Mrs. West Sussex, Easter 2017

"I would like to say how pleased we were with the course at OXSS - the quality of teaching was superb and has really inspired him to get cracking with the work! It was quite a minefield choosing a course as there were so many of them - we got you through recommendation - and we were not disappointed." Mrs. Essex, Easter 2017

“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 2015/16/17

"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

more about Summer school


"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

"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
