About EF Academy Oxford
EF Academy is part of EF Education First, the world’s leading private education organisation. Founded in 1965, EF has helped more than three million students realise their ambitions of studying abroad. With more than 200 schools and offices around the world, EF has a truly global reach.
EF Academy Oxford, an international boarding school for students in their last two years of secondary school, aims to offer its pupils a superior education abroad, thorough preparation for university and access to a future that knows no borders. Our students maximize their potential through the IB Diploma or A-Level programme and a majority of them progress to university courses in the UK.
EF Academy presently operates in two UK locations, with the second school in Torbay; our school in Oxford will go into its eighth year of operation in September 2016 and currently has 200 students from 60 different countries. We understand the many difficulties overseas student may encounter studying abroad and we place great emphasis on our responsibility to support, guide and assist our students in adjusting to life in the UK. The majority of our students are housed in one of our purpose-built modern boarding houses whilst a few are housed with local families who have been visited and vetted by our staff.
EF's vision is to grow; because it is challenging, exciting, rewarding, and creates opportunities for everyone. Growth means not only an increase in size, but also in the quality of our programmes and the personal growth and development of EF's most important asset, our people, both professionally and personally.
EF's mission is to break down barriers of language, culture and geography.
