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.
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.
All accommodation fees for our Junior Summer students are included in the chosen centre package cost.
If you require a vegan, coeliac, lactose-free or Halal diet in a homestay, a charge of £25 per week will be applied.
It’s sometimes possible to organise Residential year-round accommodation and fees are given on a quotation basis.
