You don't tailor your PS to Oxford. You have one PS which gets sent out to all of your choices.

A PS is there to tell the admissions tutor WHY you want to study Computer Science. That's it, that's all you need to put in. You can demonstrate that by mentioning any books you've read, lectures you've been to etc.

I'll tell you what not to put in - don't put in stuff like having teamwork skills through doing DofE or working part time at Waitrose. They only care about WHY you want to study CS.
