We often experience very positive feedback from parents regarding the quality of their child’s experience, and are always very pleased to hear from them. You can read reviews from some of our students’ parents below – contact us if you would like to leave a testimonial.

Barbra, mother of Fabien (Germany)

New Perspectives

“Fabian very much enjoyed his 2 weeks at SPC in Oxford. He particularly enjoyed getting into contact with students from other continents, in particular Asia. He was happy with the courses and the activities offered. He was amazed about the great team spirit which had only developed within 2 weeks and still is in contact with many fellow students. All in all he had a very good time and plans to enrol again for 2019.”
