Accommodation and Food

Oxford Residential


We have two boarding houses and your child could be placed in either of these, Cothill Main House and Cothill New House. Students stay in homely dorm rooms usually sleeping 4 to 6 students with plenty of bathrooms for all students. Girls and boys always sleep in separate areas, and nationalities are mixed to ensure everyone gets to meet new friends from different countries with English as the shared language. There are communal areas where students can socialise, relax and access Wi-Fi at specific times of the day.

Food & Meal Times

Meals are taken in the Cothill dining room where our students are given 3 meals a day plus healthy snacks. We offer a range of healthy and nutritious hot and cold food choices every meal time varying from classic English dishes to popular international cuisine and a varied salad bar. We cater for specific dietary requirements including vegetarian, Halal, gluten free etc.

We make sure meal times are social occasions, mixing nationalities on each table and ensuring British children and staff are spread amongst the international students to foster more English conversation.
