A safe environment for young learners of all ages, OISE Telford is located in its own extensive grounds with excellent recreational facilities including tennis courts, heated swimming pool, playing fields and a football pitch.
The school is situated in the small and typically English market town of Wellington in the county of Shropshire approximately 5 miles from the centre of Telford in the county of Shropshire. Telford, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, is one of the UK's fastest growing and most successful new towns.
OISE's philosophy of total language immersion plays an important role, meaning the whole learning experience is structured to teach relevant vocabulary and expressions, and to provide constant opportunities for students to reinforce what is studied by applying it to natural, real-world situations, both in the classroom and outside of it.
The Intensive Summer Curriculum is a full time course of 27 hours of tuition per week, with a maximum of 8 students per class. Through this course, we aim to develop in our students an intellectual and social understanding which will lead to a fulfilling life, both personally and professionally. We do this by delivering a full day of learning which focuses on language, academic literacy, subject literacy and social and cultural fluency.
In the evenings, students spend time with the host family. One evening per week there is a social activity for all students, such as a barbecue, ice-skating, bowling or a party. Every Saturday, there is an excursion to Chester, Shrewsbury or Stratford-Upon-Avon.
