Half Board or Full Board

Shared Room: we can provide shared rooms for couples/friends/family.

Staying in a homestay is an ideal way to practise your English and get to know British culture. You will live as part of the household, taking meals together and sharing the common living areas. We have many wonderful hosts of different backgrounds: families with children; single hosts living alone; couples without children or whose children have grown up and left home. Your host will provide you with a comfortable room where to study and relax. They will give you a change of towel and bed linen every week, and will wash your clothes. However, it is a home and not a hotel, so we ask you to respect the house rules.

For all students under 18, the main host will be DBS-checked (police-checked) as part of our safeguarding procedures. Our welfare staff at the school reception are always available to talk to if you have any concerns about your homestay. If it becomes necessary, we will find you a new homestay as quickly as possible.
