Our Campus and Facilities
Our experience is matched by our academic resources, including well equipped science laboratories, art studio and modern teaching spaces. Over the last 70 years our campus has grown to accommodate our increasing student population. From our original location on 141 Banbury Road, we have expanded to 25 buildings in North Oxford. In 1999 we bought our premises on Bardwell Road, which has become the location of our International College for the last 23 years.
The Banbury Road Campus
Our Banbury Road Campus is for the exclusive use of students studying the IB Diploma from September to May and our Summer teenagers taking English language courses in June, July and August.
The campus for teenagers is based at 139 Banbury Road – Oxford – OX2 7AL. We have several beautiful buildings for you to use during your time with us.
You will live in our college houses which are no more than a five-minute walk to lessons, activities and the dining hall. Students who come in the summer can choose to live in homestay and will travel to college by bus or car.
We are just a 10-minute bus ride from the centre of Oxford. At times, when there aren’t any lessons or activities, you will be able to take the bus or walk into town to go shopping, visit museums or enjoy the famous sights.

The Globe Cafe and Dining Room
In November 2015, our award-winning 121 residence and Art Studio opened after a £5.5 million investment. The Art Studio was purpose-built and offers an inspiring study environment. The studio is equipped with an intaglio press, mannequins, sewing machines, a photographic darkroom, and a high resolution interactive digital screen, among many more art materials.
With having a purpose-built art studio, our students get the opportunity to explore their creativity and experiment with range of techniques: 2D forms (drawing, painting, printmaking, graphics), 3D forms (sculpture, designed objects, textiles, site specific) and lens-based/electronic/screen-based forms (animation, storyboarding, film, photography, vector graphics, software generated).
Students have their own individual storage spaces for A1 portfolios and sketchbooks. The studio is well-lit and the north wall is covered with magnetic exhibition boards for easy and flexible displays of work.
Named after one of our founders Pamela Morris, we invested £3.3 million in a new Science and Mathematics building, which includes 3 well-equipped science laboratories, preparatory rooms, as well as 3 large Mathematics classrooms. The building was carefully designed to complement the surrounding Victorian and Edwardian architecture.
Our large library is a fantastic resource for students, offering well equipped study spaces and access to a broad range of materials. These include books in a variety of languages, journals, as well as e-books and an extensive collection of online databases, including JSTOR, EBSCO, Digital Theatre plus, Gale News Vault and Learning on Screen (BOB).
