Testimonials

"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

"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 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

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

“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

"Thank you very much for all of the help you have given me over the past four years . I can't wait to start at St Anne's (Oxford) this October and I'm sure your excellent courses enabled me to achieve my A-level grades of four As. I am extremely grateful for the support and superb teaching I received from your courses. Many thanks and best wishes"  Sarah C.
