Details of fees for 2020 are included below and a deposit of £250 must be sent with your Application Form (which is non-refundable if accepted onto the course). Please note that the increase in fees is due to increased venue hire costs passed on by Loretto School and you may wish to take out personal insurance if there’s a chance you might cancel your booking.

Cheques should be made payable to Oxenfoord International Summer School and payments can also be made by bank transfer:

Oxenfoord International SCIO,

IBAN number: GB26 TSBS 3025 8301 3239 79

You’ll see that a number of resident, non-resident, observer, day and whole week options are available. Please note, due to an increase in venue hire at Loretto School, we have had to raise fees accordingly to accommodate additional costs:


Fees are fully inclusive of all tuition, entry to all concerts plus accommodation on a full-board basis (breakfast, lunch and dinner). All fees are per person, per week unless indicated otherwise.

  • Balcarres/Holme House Resident (single occupancy)= £985 (whole course)
  • Balcarres/Holme House Resident (shared occupancy) = £805 (whole course)

N.B. Most bedrooms will be allocated on a shared occupancy basis, particularly to those allocated a bursary, with a limited number of single occupancy rooms available.

Non resident

  • £95 per day – Minimum of three days, excluding lunch and dinner.

N.B. Non-residents please add £18 per day to include lunch and dinner which is passed on at cost.

In addition to classes included in the course fee, extra classes may be chosen at a cost of £40 (or two for £70). These classes may be requested either in advance or once the course has started and will be allocated according to availability.


Observers are welcome to attend and can purchase tickets for £20 per half day and full-time music students may observe for free. Visitors are encouraged to attend all performances, but a donation of £5 is requested towards the Oxenfoord International Bursary Fund. Visitors and non-resident students may also purchase daily delegate meal tickets at £18 which is passed on at cost from the catering team at Loretto School.
