The European School, Culham (ESC), Oxfordshire was opened in 1978 and it was one of fourteen European Schools around Europe and the only one in the United Kingdom. ESC had around 450 secondary (11–19 years old) students and the final two employees are due to cease employment there on 31 May 2018.
The former ESC campus is located on the grounds of the former Culham College, a teacher training college established in 1852 by Samuel Wilberforce, Bishop of Oxford. The Gothic Revival architect Joseph Clarke designed its buildings, and Sherwood and Pevsner described them as "institutional Victorian Gothic at its grimmest".
