CIE Junior & Teen Summer Campus
In the summer we hold our popular Junior Residential Course and Teens Residential Course at Wychwood Campus, a 120 year old girl’s school in the centre of Oxford.
Wychwood Campus is a residential school, which means all facilities, including bedrooms, are on site. It offers three meals a day, sports facilities, spacious classrooms with the newest equipment, common areas, and a big outdoor space to relax. It also offers WIFI, computers, and TV for students to use in their free time.
Wychwood Campus is a 15 minute walk to the main CIE Campus and just across the road from trendy North Parade. There you can find a number of cafes and restaurants.
The Oxford Union
During the academic year as needed, we often hire the Gladstone and Morris rooms at the Oxford Union, conveniently located just opposite CIE Oxford in St Michael’s Street.
These rooms can be used for small or large groups and offer students an opportunity to experience the tradition of this Oxford institution. The Union has played host to a huge variety of internationally-renowned guest speakers over the nearly 200 years of its existence:
According to the Union’s website:
“To name a few, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama and even Kermit the Frog have all found the time to come and speak at the Oxford Union. Every term, every year, the Union has a tremendous range of high-profile speakers unlike anywhere else in Britain.”
Wesley Memorial Methodist Church
We regularly use a number of rooms at the Wesley Memorial Methodist Church. These premises are just across the road from CIE Oxford. The church offers both larger rooms, which are suitable for testing in the summer, certificate ceremonies and junior classes, as well as smaller rooms used for classes during busy periods throughout the academic year.
According to the Church’s website:
“Our location, which is in the very heart of Oxford, has a very prominent frontage on New Inn Hall Street, right next to St Peter’s college. We are very easily accessible and are an ideal venue for all types of meetings.”

St Peter’s College
When we need extra classrooms we sometimes use rooms at St Peter’s College, which is a one minute walk from CIE. As well as the historic buildings, St Peter’s College also has modern classrooms with large TV Screens and a lecture theatre.
