Homestay Accommodation

Staying in an English home is the best way to practise English and experience the British way of life, sharing the social life of the family, such as mealtimes and conversations. Hosts help our students to feel at home in their new surroundings by providing a genuine warm welcome and comfortable environment. Homestay accommodation also offers good value for money as breakfast, packed lunch and evening meals are provided every day.

Most of our host families are within a maximum of 30 minutes walking distance of the school. Students living in a host family more than 2 kms from the school will receive a free local bus pass.

We take great care in selecting our homestay accommodation. We visit each host before using them, and continue to visit regularly. Being in constant touch with our hosts means that we get to know them very well and that also helps us to match students with hosts.

If you choose homestay accommodation, you can expect:

  • a carefully chosen home to match your needs
  • to be treated as a member of the home during your stay
  • a single room if you are 18 or over (unless otherwise requested) furnished with a bed, storage, bed linen and towels (under 18s share a room with a student of a different nationality unless otherwise requested)
  • your host to do a reasonable amount of laundry for you each week
  • although there can be up to a maximum of 4 guests, no two students with the same nationality will be placed in the same homestay (unless otherwise requested)
  • full board (breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal)
  • a key to the house (if you are over 18 years old)
  • the opportunity to learn more of the British way of life
  • a chance to practise English in social situations
