Summer has officially begun at ORA as we welcome our students aged 8 – 12 to St Mary’s, Ascot! All of our students will be staying in this renowned location, voted public school of the year in 2015!
The site boasts 55 acres of land in the middle of the beautiful British countryside. It is equipped to the very best standard with facilities including; an indoor swimming pool, a theatre, newly renovated canteen as well as several sports fields. The building is a perfect blend of period and modern architecture and all of our students are sure to be impressed by the fantastic array of lessons, activities and excursions we have planned for them to enjoy during their stay with us.
Our Academic Discovery programme for students aged 8 – 10 will offer students an opportunity to investigate an important question during their stay. Our Academic Discovery Plus for students aged 11 – 12 offers student the option to choose a STEM stream, specialising in scientific endeavour or they can open their imaginations with the Arts stream. Outside of these, we also offer our tech focused programmes; Coding with Scratch, as well as Game Creation, both of which are sure to get our juniors excited about careers in this highly lucrative sphere.
Outside of their studies, the students will enjoy a full social programme designed by our committed team of staff on campus – it’s sure to be an exciting time! Alongside their fully tailored social programme, students will also depart on fascinating and educational excursions to see the best the UK has to offer. Students will always be in the safe hands of our Programme Directors, Junior Deans and Counsellors who are dedicated to ensuring every single student has a memorable and rewarding experience whilst here. Everyone will also have the chance to build international friendships which we hope will endure for years to come!
As the next two weeks progress, we’ll be posting updates, pictures and videos about all the wonderful things the students are getting up to – so make sure you bookmark this blog and follow ORA’s Social Media channels to stay up-to-date.
