Information for students under 18

Students aged 16 and 17 are welcome to attend Kheiron, but please note that they will be in classes and on school-organised activities with adults aged 18 and over.

Students will not be supervised outside the classes or outside school-organised activities so please make sure that parents and guardians are aware of this before booking their child on to a course. We will ask parents or guardians to read and sign a consent form before their child’s place is secured on the course.

Students under the age of 18 are not allowed to attend the evening classes. They are, however, very welcome to attend the free evening classes when there is a member of the senior academic management team on the premises.

We carry out suitability checks on all our staff and homestay hosts as the safeguarding of under 18s is of maximum importance.

We ensure that there is a safeguarding manager leading the activities, who is First Aid trained and risk assessments are carried out before any activity.

Buying and consuming alcohol and tobacco in the UK is illegal for people under 18. Kheiron operates a very strict policy and we may ask your child to leave with no refund if he or she has broken any UK law (including being in possession of, or under the influence of, illegal substances).

I chose to study in Kheiron since it is a little school located in the heart of Oxford with excellent reviews and accredited by the British Council. As far I am concerned, my expectations were not disappointed from the first moment. Personally, it is the most suitable place in Oxford to learn English in a very stimulating atmosphere, where teachers are always focused on eliciting the best of you. What is more, they are continually adapting methodology and learning materials in order to make you reach a better comprehension and production of spoken English. Teachers are also friendly and animated, so you feel as if you had a second family in Oxford. I would doubtless come back!
