Oxford is a wonderful place to live, visit or study.

Oxford has something for everyone – an incredibly rich history, some of the best museums in the world, exciting nightlife, beautiful parks and rivers, and a huge variety of cafes, restaurants and pubs.

On top of this, Oxford is only an hour away from central London by train, and is very well connected to other fantastic cities that can easily be visited for a daytrip or over a weekend. For nature lovers, Oxford is also a great base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside.

School activities

Kheiron School of English is a real community. In the summer we go on outings two to three times a week, taking advantage of all that Oxford has to offer.

These have included Shakespeare plays, punting trips along Oxford’s rivers, strawberry picking, visits to the city’s famous museums and colleges, and a late night Halloween tour of Oxford.

Oxford’s location also makes it easy to explore beyond the city – it is easy for students to make the most of their time in the UK by visiting fantastic places like London, Bath, Stonehenge, and the birthplace of Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon.
