Course Details

We are delighted to announce that we are now accepting bookings for our campus-based residential summer school programme following the government’s announcement last month. We now anticipate that all lockdown restrictions will be lifted by mid-June allowing our residential summer school to resume in July/August.

While Covid-related restrictions are likely to be lifted, we leave the aftermath of another disrupted year of studies in our wake. With many students having spent a large proportion of the year confined to online tuition, we expect many students to feel behind in their studies and in requirement of some additional support for content that has been missed for their GCSE/IGCSE/A Levels, and International Baccalaureate. We understand the struggles students have been up against and so there will be a special focus on the ‘catch-up’ element of our summer school this year.

Digital (Online) Summer School

The OXSS summer school will also be available via online tuition, providing students with the same support, digitally. As per our usual courses, students will prepare for their GCSE, A Level internal exams using market leading digital classroom technology (Microsoft Teams).

Our summer school combines revision courses for GCSE, IGCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate providing valuable catch-up material, with introductory content to the next academic year of study. This system has been tried and tested over the past 20 years and neatly bridges the gap between year groups in a 1-, 2- or 3-week format.

Students joining us in Summer 2021 will benefit from:

  • Experienced tutors to help them with bridging gaps in the schooling.
  • Small group tuition – typical size 2-4 students, with a maximum of 6.
  • Revision course designed to help students make up for “lost” schooling.
  • Assisting students prepare for the upcoming academic year.
  • All major exam boards offered.
  • Detailed feedback on practice exams/written work

Guaranteed one-to-one tuition

To further assist our students through another difficult year, we will now be offering guaranteed one-to-one classes on our summer school programme. This is something traditionally only offered on our half term courses but has now been extended to our residential summer programme!

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 & thanks to his teachers.


Why choose to attend a Summer Course?

Although it is great to enjoy some time off over the summer holidays, it is also a great idea to keep your studies active! A Summer Course with Oxford Science Studies isn’t just a chance to revise material covered last year but to gain a fresh insight into material that will follow in the coming year. It is the perfect chance to get a head start on new material, key if you are moving from GCSE or IGCSE up to IB or A Level, where the difference in content and knowledge required can be quite substantial.

With the outbreak of Covid-19 leading to the closure of schools, students have missed out on fundamental teaching time and face to face contact.  Our interactive online course offers them the chance to spend time with a specialist, working through any questions that may have come about during their recent home schooling.  The aim of these courses is to put the student in the best possible position for the forthcoming academic year – catch up, revise and prepare.
