Lessons and activities
The lessons are energetic and fun, and designed around the topics relevant to young learners. They focus on language development, individual and team projects, and communication. In the afternoon and evenings our students have organized cultural and recreational activities during which they can put their English into practice as well as learn about Oxford and England.

Safety and welfare
Oxford ILS has comprehensive welfare policies and procedures, with dedicated staff to create a comfortable and supportive environment for our young students. All staff, including Homestay providers, are friendly, approachable, DBS checked and safeguarding trained.
To keep students safe and comfortable, the School provides transport services after the evening activities. There is a dedicated staff member responsible for our young learners’ well-being, comfort and protection.

All our students under the age of 18 will stay with local English speaking families in Oxford, not too far from the School. Students will typically have a single or twin room.
Each Homestay provider is selected to a high standard by our Accommodation team They are also regularly inspected to maintain quality. Our Homestay providers are welcoming, friendly and happy to host our students. Staying with a Homestay provider extends the learning experience after the School closes, as students will learn about living in Britain and British culture.

Groups of twelve or more arriving at an Oxford meeting point are greeted by a staff member of Oxford ILS.Students are then met and collected by their Homestay host. For individual students arriving at a UK airport the School can arrange a taxi or Meet & Greet service at the chosen airport.

During the course
On the first day at School students receive a welcome pack and an induction to include: information about the School, Oxford, welfare, safety and emergency procedures. Each student will be told who to speak to if they need help or support. They will also receive an ID with a 24-hour emergency number. We have a high supervision ratio which ensures that there is at least one Oxford ILS staff member present for every 12 students. Additionally, every morning students are met at a central location by Oxford ILS staff and they walk together to the School.
