Welcome to Bucksmore English Language Summer Schools



The d’Overbroeck’s summer programme allows international students to experience a UK independent boarding school environment. Each week is themed around a set topic with lessons adapted from the year-round d’Overbroeck’s curriculum. The lessons focus on advanced English skills based on GCSE and A-level subjects.


d’Overbroeck’s Oxford is a traditional city-centre boarding school in the city of Oxford. Consistently ranked among the top co-educational boarding schools in the UK, d’Overbroeck’s was first founded in 1977 by Malcolm van Biervliet (the name “d’Overbroeck” comes from part of his family name, which has Flemish origins).

The school quickly established itself as a forward-thinking and highly-successful boarding school with a reputation for highly quality academic tuition.

d’Overbroeck’s and Bucksmore will work together in partnership to run the Summer Boarding School Experience programme, combining d’Overbroeck’s boarding school expertise with Bucksmore Education’s summer school background.
