OISE Taunton is ideal for the younger student and has a safe and friendly atmosphere.

As all staff live on campus there is 24 hour supervision which gives the centre a real family feel and encourages younger learners to flourish in their linguistic abilities.

The Full Study programme for children aged 7 to 13 years has been designed specifically for this age group with tuition tailored to their cognitive ability, equipping them with skills that form a foundation for their future academic and professional life. The safe and comfortable environment created by staff in OISE schools allows children to concentrate on the dynamic and stimulating tuition with no distractions.

The school is set in beautiful grounds in rural Somerset and enjoys fantastic facilities for sports, arts, crafts and drama. The dedicated staff aim to make the children feel at home, especially as it may be the first time away from family. The intensive programme and the excellent activities keep students occupied and most importantly they leave the school with far better English communication skills.

Dating back to the Saxon age, Taunton is situated between the Quantock and Blackdown hills in the heart of the south west of England, with the beautiful River Tone running through it. The town itself is situated 50km from Exeter, 80km from Bristol and 230km west of London.

OISE Taunton has a wide range of facilities including a sports hall, tennis courts, heated outdoor swimming pool and a woodland assault course. Every Saturday, there is a full day excursion either to Crealy Adventure Theme Park, Wookey Hole or Bristol Zoo. Sunday is filled with activities such as sports, music workshops, swimming, bouncy castle, wacky races, art challenge and music games.

The Full Study programme for children aged 7 to 13 is taught at OISE Taunton and OISE Sherbourne Priors. There are 3 hours of lessons each morning, with one and a half hours of tuition after the lunch break, totaling in 22.5 hours of tuition per week.

Classes are taught in groups of up to eight children of the same level of English. The programme aims to challenge and develop capacity for listening, reading, writing and conversation through use of authentic materials such as texts, multimedia, activities and songs.

The small number of participants ensures maximum individual attention and continuous monitoring of the child throughout their stay, to ensure both academic progress and pastoral care.

The Full Study programme for children aged 7 to 13 can be taken all year round at OISE Sherbourne Priors or for a duration of either 1, 2, 3, 4 or 6 weeks during the summer in OISE Taunton, according preferences.

The programme is designed specifically for children aged 7 to 13 years of age, and aims to encourage learning of the English language in a comfortable and well-equipped environment, that is both safe and stimulating for children.

The Full Study programme is a dynamic and challenging course designed to teach students to communicate and express themselves effectively in English.

OISE motivates the young students in language learning at a crucial age when it can make a big difference to their capacity to absorb English, allowing them to build on their language skills easily in the future. Teaching at this age and with a curriculum tailored to their cognitive ability means that strong communication skills are quickly materialised, leading to an excellent command of the English language.

OISE has a long history as a leader in the language industry and ensures maximum results and reliability in the method of teaching and quality of care, ensuring their safety and welfare at all times. Children are supervised 24 hours a day by highly qualified personnel.

All activities take place within the school grounds, except for scheduled excursions during the weekend.

Lessons aim to captivate the imagination of students and drama, music and storytelling activities are organised to provide learning in a number of stimulating contexts rather than offering simply traditional classroom teaching.

Every morning teachers introduce a topic through a story, and the theme is used throughout the day. Classes focus on learning vocabulary, narrative development and comprehension, which are taught at a lively pace encouraging the children’s creativity. Students perform various activities such as performing role-plays and songs that apply and foster newly learned vocabulary.

During the afternoon students continue to develop the theme for an hour and a half through a craft workshop.
