5 reasons to choose Oxford Royale Academy



A peaceful location for learning and enrichment

Set within its own grounds in the British countryside, the peaceful environment found at St Mary’s School provides the perfect setting for learning and enjoying new things.

And with cultural and historic sites such as Windsor Castle a short coach ride away, students will enjoy a true British summer school experience.



Outstanding British boarding school facilities

St Mary’s boasts a wealth of high-quality facilities for learning, sports and relaxation which enable students to take full advantage of everything the site has to offer both during and outside of lessons.

After working hard in class, students can enjoy exploring the grounds and spending time with their new friends as they benefit from the range of facilities on offer.



An historic setting within which to live and learn

Students who attend a course at St Mary’s School will be walking in the footsteps of many famous alumni. The school was founded in 1885 by Mary Ward, a visionary who firmly believed that women were just as intellectually capable as men, and that they deserved an education that reflected this.

Our inclusive summer schools reflect these values of diversity, inclusivity and opportunity for all.



Gain a sense of independence in a safe environment

Attending a summer school at St Mary’s is likely to be many students’ first experience staying away from home, and the safe, secure British boarding school environment is the perfect setting in which to take those first steps.



A true taste of British education and boarding school life

Boarding schools are characterised by a sense of community, and St Mary’s School is no exception.

Students who attend our summer courses here can enjoy feeling part of a close-knit group both during and outside of lessons as they learn with their classmates during the day and then eat, socialise and have fun together after class.
