Located in the medieval town of Uppingham, Uppingham School is one of Britain’s most prestigious boarding schools, with an impressive history that dates back to its founding in 1584.
Its superb buildings and grounds offer a stunning mix of old and new, with beautiful quadrangles and cloisters set alongside modern accommodation, classrooms and a state-of-the-art sports centre. The safe boarding school environment provides our junior students with everything they need to live and learn happily during their stay with Oxford Royale Academy.
Students can choose to stay for a week studying one subject, or for several weeks studying subjects within exciting disciplines including Arts, Business, Law, English, Medicine, Science, Tech and Coding. All of our courses have been created with the specific aim of challenging children to achieve their full potential while having fun in the process.
When students arrive at Uppingham School, they will be struck by the calmness and beauty of their British boarding school surroundings.
And with all classrooms, accommodation and sports facilities located on-site within the safe and secure grounds, students will enjoy a sense of independence within a safe environment, guided by Oxford Royale’s experienced and supportive staff.
In addition to its traditional buildings, Uppingham School offers a range of impressive, modern facilities for learning, leisure and relaxation to give students an exceptional experience both in and out of the classroom.
With some of the UK’s best drama, music and sports facilities, students can expect a varied and exciting extra-curricular programme.
Tutors on our junior summer school programme are experienced, friendly and welcoming, ready to teach students of all abilities and backgrounds. We pride ourselves on our excellent faculty, which has grown over 15 years of running summer schools all over the world.
Spending time away from home can seem like a daunting prospect, so we take great care to ensure that all of our students arrive to find a welcoming and safe environment where they can feel comfortable, be themselves and become more independent.
By forming friendships with children of different nationalities and cultures, students gain a more rounded view of the world as they exchange ideas and inspire each other in an atmosphere that promotes mutual support.
