Students arrive at Jowett Walk today, stepping off plane, train, coach and taxi to take part in two weeks of learning, friendship and fun. We cannot wait to welcome them to Jowett Walk!
Over the next two weeks, the students will be engaging in some brilliant lessons and discussions with peers from around the world. With dozens of nationalities at ORA, there will be a true intermingling of thought and origin, which can only lead to some great ideas and friendships perhaps greater still.
Outside of the classroom, students will have plenty of chances to do what they love, whether it be chatting with friends, painting, playing sports (a particularly popular option in the previous session— those fond of sports are fortunate to have the Balliol College sports pitches a few feet from Jowett Walk), or exploring picturesque cobbled streets and rambling art galleries. When they aren’t independently launching themselves at culture and entertainment, there will also be a long list of organised activities taking place: there are trips planned to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, plays by Shakespeare, and Hampton Court Palace, as well as ample opportunity to get to grips with the famous Oxford punts.
