Boarding students reside at the College’s purpose-built student accommodation, Cherwell House, which is comprised of 55 en-suite single study bedrooms, and located within a short walking distance from Oxford’s main train station and the major transport links.

All meals are provided by an esteemed chef, and boarders are looked after by the residential welfare team who are responsible for pastoral care and support.

  • Traditional 2-year A-Level and GCSE programmes;

Enrichment activities are a large part of the student life at Cherwell, with regular student club meetings, professorial talks, debate workshops and sporting activities.
