Bucksmore Education

Four decades of experience running summer schools has made Bucksmore one of the leading providers of summer education in the UK. Students aged 13-18 have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a British boarding school or University as they delve deeper into one of the extensive range of subjects on offer. Bucksmore takes particular pride in their innovative ‘study-in-action days’, where students take their theoretical learning outside the classroom and visit places where they can apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios. All courses provide at least 25 hours / week of tuition, along with at least 2 cultural excursions.

Bucksmore operates from world-renowned venues such as University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, King’s College London, and prestigious boarding schools based in Oxford, Kent, Surrey and East Sussex. View all dates and fees for summer 2023 here.
