OISE Newbury Hall

Newbury, United Kingdom

Newbury is a traditional English town where the famous TV series Downton Abbey is filmed.

OISE Newbury is located in an impressive Victorian building which dates back to 1859 and was originally a primary school for local children. The interior has been modernised to combine the atmosphere and character of schooling in days gone by with the comfort and excellent study facilities of a modern college. The most recent addition is a residence, opened in 2009.

Every Saturday, there is a full day excursion to a city such as London with shopping, sightseeing and a museum visit. Alternative destinations are Oxford or Reading. Homestay students spend Sundays with their host family, residential students have activities.

Young Learners are greeted by members of the OISE courier team at London airports or the Eurostar terminal within standard hours as part of the package. Students are then accompanied to the Welcome Lounge, a facility with food and refreshments as well as activities to keep students occupied until they are taken onward to the school.
