A summer with OSC is guaranteed to leave you with fun memories of the adventures and laughs you shared with your fellow IB students. Through our 24-hour pastoral care, our team of Social Supervisors and Course Deans make sure your time outside of class, mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends, are filled with activities and excursions that make the most of your time in the UK. 





Our social programme includes popular sports and interests, aimed to challenge you and your friends to try something new, compete with your peers, and, most importantly, have a memorable summer in Oxford. Morning activities will be on offer for those that enjoy an active start to their day, and, to join in, all you need to do is sign-up during your stay.

Our team of Activites Coordinators will be on hand throughout your time with us, to make sure that you enjoy the activities and that there is something to suit everyone. Our team will run sports activities each week, take you to enjoy new experiences, enourage you to take on new challenges, and even get you involved in some of the activity running too!

At the end of each week, you are invited to the Friday Night Dinner so that you can get together with all of your friends, take your last snaps, and find out which of you will be awarded ‘World's Best Goalie’ or who might be ‘the most likely to become the next Justin Bieber!’.

The whole social programme is included in the price; we wish to enhance your experience with us and help you balance your studies so that you learn new skills, make new friends, and generally brighten your future even more.

Thorpe Park Resort

There’s no better way to relieve stress, socialise with your new buddies, and enjoy your weekend, than experiencing the adrenaline rush of a theme park!

Thorpe Park is one of the UK’s most popular attractions and offers over 30 rides of all sizes and excitement levels. Twist and turn through the ten almighty loops of Colossus, go from 0-80mph in under 2 seconds on Stealth, or risk getting soaked on Tidal Wave. Students can expect a day full of thrills and exhilaration.


The best thing has been meeting wonderful people from all over the world. The friends I’ve made here are friends I will keep forever.
