Oxford English Centre in England has changed ownership. After more than 30 years under the leadership of Dr Graham Simpson, the English language school in central Oxford has passed to Ms Gaye Dixon, who began her career in international education as a teacher at the neighbouring college of St Clare’s.
Through the acquisition of OEC, Gaye has realised a longstanding dream to own a leading independent school in Oxford. “There is a niche for independent schools in this world of mass markets,” she says. “The Oxford English Centre offer is one that has stood the test of time and is still in high demand from students and agents. We plan to continue the amazing work for which Graham and his staff are renowned.”
Gaye and the new centre manager, Terry Malone, each have over 25 years of experience in international education. Graham Simpson will also remain on hand to enable a smooth transition.
The new owners of the Oxford English Centre must apply to retain IALC membership and if successful, the school will be re-inspected within the next 12 months.
