The pastoral staff at Wycombe Abbey are trained to assist children with their specific needs, 24 hours per day. Oxford Summer Courses for 9-12 year olds guarantees one staff member to every five students for our 9-12 year olds, and experienced house parents and highly trained pastoral teams are all trained in first aid. Pastoral staff live on site for the duration of the programme, and are available to assist students at all hours. We also have a trained nurse on site. We prioritise your child’s safety and comfort, while also making sure that they are adjusting well and enjoying their summer.Founded in 1896, Wycombe Abbey is a leader in boarding education. It offers a host of modern facilities, including a 25 metre indoor heated swimming pool, sports hall, performing arts centre and a foreign languages centre. Located in the English countryside, the dormitories are comfortable and secure. Students can also use the cosy house common room and library, available at their disposal during their summer course. Beyond the classroom and workshops, 9-12 year olds require time away from learning to socialise and relax. We provide fun in-house activities at Wycombe Abbey, such as movie nights, scavenger hunts, yoga, and more. Students often play a game of football in their spare time on the sprawling grounds. We also offer excursions that may include Harry Potter World, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace, tour of Oxford University, and more.
