In addition to the academic competition, students will participate in a full and exciting cultural programme during the BEO. The BEO excursions normally include visits to London and either Oxford or Cambridge and either Brighton, Windsor or Stratford–Upon-Avon. So that everyone can make the most of their time in London, all excursions are extended full days (9am departure from the centre and 8pm departure from London). Schools can also book a musical and then one of their London days will be extended to 10:30 pm.
All excursions will be accompanied by Oxford International and BEO staff.
Before going on these excursions, students will attend our Culture Workshops; these will prepare them for the visits and introduce them to the most important aspects of British culture and history.
BEO Evening Activities
Making new friends and sharing ideas and experiences are key aspects of the ethos of the BEO. We place great importance on the evening activities. These will include The Inter-School BEO Mystery Challenge, the BEO International Night & the BEO Talent Show but also regular discos, karaoke and sports evenings.
