For Theatre students, acting classes are offered in a partnership with the nearby Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-on-Avon. The class sizes are small allowing for close and memorable relationships with the highly qualified British faculty.
Living at Wroxton College provides the essence of life in England, complete with breaks for tea every morning and afternoon. A great way to relax between classes, students often find themselves looking forward to teatime with biscuits in the morning and cake in the afternoon. Wroxton Abbey retains its 17th century charm but has been completely modernized. There’s even a fully-equipped gym at your disposal; a nice way to blow off steam after a day of classes.
Wroxton is three miles from the market town of Banbury, on the edge of the Cotswolds, an area known for its outstanding natural beauty. Explore the nearby cities of Oxford or Birmingham. At Wroxton you will encounter the quintessential English village scene. Set in the rural heart of England, Wroxton offers a peaceful environment for learning amid a beautiful countryside of lawns, lakes, gardens and woodland. However, the quiet country setting belies a close proximity to leading cultural and entertainment centers that provide an important dimension of the program. Group excursions are part of each week’s program. London, less than a 90-minute train ride away, presents an outstanding selection of theaters, concert halls, museums, galleries, restaurants and major shopping opportunities.
Wroxton College continues to meet its founding vision of an intellectual community, cloistered in an idyllic setting, and housed in a remarkably beautiful, modernized 17th-century manor house.
