Your child will follow a stimulating programme of lectures, debates and excursions designed to build their understanding of current political issues as well as nurture transferable skills such as leadership, collaboration and debating. This two-week summer school will equip them to take an active role in their schools and wider society, whilst also giving them a flavour of life as a student in Oxford.
Your child will be taught by leading academics and Rhodes Scholars, who will work with prominent national and international speakers to deliver a course based around the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development. Bespoke activities will develop their leadership and teamwork skills, building towards a final sustainability conference where they will debate their peers and experience democracy in action.
Additionally, your child will participate in fun and informative excursions, including visits to the Houses of Parliament and the British Museum. They will also gain first-hand knowledge of the Oxford application process from current and former students, along with advice on interviews and personal statements.
