All of our accommodation is located in the centre of Oxford

My experience at Oxford Scholastica is honestly very difficult to put into words. When I arrived at St George’s I didn’t know anyone and was very far away from my home. That all changed in a matter of minutes. Everyone welcomed me with bright smiles and I then realised that the upcoming weeks would be a time of my life that I would never forget.

Experience Oxford

You’ll get to experience the real Oxford as you’ll be living centrally in the “city of dreaming spires”.

St Thomas'

Cherwell House

Lampl

St George's

Edwards

St George’s

St George’s is owned by St Peter’s College, one of the 38 colleges of Oxford University. St George’s is used by second and third-year Oxford undergraduate students during term time. It houses our students aged between 15 and 18.

St Peter’s College was founded in 1928, with the aim of providing an education at Oxford for around 40 bright students with limited funds. Along with St Thomas’, St George’s is one of the college’s annexes.

During their first year, most Oxford students live on the main college site, while in their second and third years many live in their college’s annex accommodation in various places around Oxford.

St Thomas’

St Thomas’ is a also owned by Oxford University’s St Peter’s College. It is used by second and third-year undergraduate students at the college. St Thomas’ accommodates our students aged 15-18.

St Peter’s is the youngest Oxford college within the old city boundaries, and has been referred to as “the laid-back teenager of the Oxford college family.”

Students at St Peter’s are known as ‘Peterites’, and their famous alumni include: Mark Carney, former Governor of the Bank of Canada and current Governor of the Bank of England, Edward Akufo-Addo, former President of Ghana and Reverend Wilbert Vere Awdry, creator of Thomas the Tank Engine!

Students on our 7th July session will be accommodated at St Thomas’, Lampl or Edwards. Students on our 21st July session will be accommodated at St Thomas’ or Lampl.

Lampl

The Lampl Building is an annex of Corpus Christi College, Oxford University, and is used by undergraduate students at the college. It houses Oxford Scholastica students aged between 12 and 18.

Corpus Christi is one of the oldest Oxford University colleges, founded in 1517. One of their earliest members helped translate the King James Bible in 1611.

Like St Thomas’ and St George’s, Lampl is near to the famous Oxford Castle. Used in the English Civil War of the 17th century, the castle’s main function afterwards was as Oxford’s local prison. The prison was closed in 1996, and the castle buildings are now used as a trendy hotel with the jail cells converted into guest rooms!

Students on our 7th July session will be accommodated at Lampl, Edwards or St Thomas’. Students on our 21st July session will be accommodated at Lampl or St Thomas’. Students on our 4th August session will be accommodated at Lampl.

Cherwell House

Cherwell House is our newest building, and is a purpose-built home for students at Cherwell College, an independent college in the city. It houses Oxford Scholastica students aged between 12 and 18.

Cherwell is next to the site of the old Osney Abbey, founded in 1129. While not much of the abbey remains today, it was Oxford’s original cathedral and has been described as the greatest building Oxford has ever lost.

Founded in 1972, Cherwell College is separate from Oxford University. Its beautiful boarding house was built in 2015 and provides state-of-the-art student accommodation.

Students on our 30th June, 14th July and 28th July sessions will be accommodated at Cherwell House.

Edwards

Edwards, or to give its full name, The EPA Centre, is an annex of Lincoln College, one of the colleges of Oxford University. The building is named after Sir Edward Penley Abraham, a Fellow of Lincoln and a pioneer of biomedical research who helped to develop the first antibiotics penicillin and cephalosporin.

The building is situated centrally in Oxford, a few minutes walk from the city centre. Nearby is the iconic Keble College, with its multi-coloured bricks, as well as the beautiful Oxford University Parks.

You’ll get your own bedroom and bathroom, and the building includes a common room and dining room. Please note that we have no formal connection with Lincoln College or The University of Oxford, and the programme is not sponsored or organised by Lincoln College.

Students on our 7th July session will be accommodated at Edwards, Lampl or St Thomas’.
