The British English Olympics
for the next generation of young ambassadors
Our competition is an exciting English language and academic contest designed for the world’s brightest international students.
Our Olympics is a great opportunity for teams of specially selected 12-16 year olds to spend an unforgettable two weeks in the UK. These students represent their schools, their cities and countries in an academic competition, while also enjoying an amazing British cultural experience.
The British English Olympics is about academic excellence. The competition provides an opportunity for bilingual schools to challenge and develop the academic and leadership skills of the students. Students compete in a series of debates, presentations, role-plays and song and dance performance in a completely immersive environment.
Students stay in some of the UK’s most prestigious boarding schools and visit some of the country’s best cultural attractions.
During the competition, students meet other participants from all over the world. They develop a healthy sense of friendly competition, and also engage in a multicultural exchange to learn more about each other.
History of the BEO
Since the BEO began, Oxford International has welcomed nearly 9,000 students from more than 250 schools. Every year, our Olympics has grown further and we now host participants from around 20 different countries.
In 2018, we are celebrating our 10th anniversary!
