Known as 'The Wroxton Experience' by those who have shared it, it provides all the essentials - and more - in a comprehensive package, enabling you to combine a high quality academic program with the opportunity to travel and experience new cultures. So, recharge your expectations, broaden your horizons, strive to be extraordinary, and come be a part of the Wroxton experience.
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. The College continues to meet its founding vision of an intellectual community, cloistered in an idyllic setting. Housed in a remarkably beautiful, modernized 17th-century manor house, to Henry James, Wroxton was part of the essence of England:
"Everything that in the material line can render life noble and charming has been gathered into it with a profusion which makes the whole place a monument of past opportunity."
However, the quiet country setting belies a close proximity to leading cultural and entertainment centers that provide an important dimension of the program. With Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford, London and Birmingham all close by and easily accessible, an outstanding selection of theaters, concert halls, museums, galleries, restaurants and major shopping areas are at hand. In addition, the mainland continent of Europe is but a short distance away, with group excursions arranged and individual visits possible. Wroxton's rich tapestry of diverse cultural, intellectual, recreational and social activities are all intermeshed with its own unique challenges. Quite simply, involvement at Wroxton is contagious.
