All students who are under 18 must attend classes and join the social activity programme as part of their course. If you are unaccompanied and aged 16-17, we will also check on your social activities outside the scheduled programme.

School Rules

  • All students must arrive on time for lessons. All classes start on time and students who arrive up to 10 minutes late may join the class with the teacher’s permission. Anyone arriving more than 10 minutes late may be asked not to join the class and the group leader must supervise them until after the next coffee break. Latecomers should not interrupt the lesson for those who arrive on time.
  • Students must come to class with their own pencils, pens and writing paper/pads/notebooks;
  • Homework should be done as requested by the teacher. Students should come to class ready to actively join in with all parts of the lesson.
  • No eating, drinking or chewing of gum is allowed during lessons or in the computer room at any time. The drinking of alcohol is not permitted.
  • Students are not allowed to use mobile phones or listen to music in class. Phones should be switched off before the lesson begins. If an urgent call has to be made the student should ask for the teachers’ permission to leave the class;
  • All classes and the school grounds, including the garden, must be kept clean and tidy. Litter should be put in the bins provided. No students should eat, smoke, sit, or stand in or around property in nearby streets. Respect must be shown to Anglolang’s neighbours.

  • No recording of lessons is permitted unless previously agreed with the school management;
  • English is the only language that should be spoken in lessons. It is unfair to force other student to listen to your first language if they have come to Anglolang to learn English;

In serious cases the school management may decide to remove the student from the school or report the matter to the police. Everyone in the school (students, teachers, admin staff) is to be treated with respect and politeness. You may also be excluded for theft; vandalism or damage to property; use of illegal drugs; smoking or using alcohol on the premises or off premises if under age; repeated unauthorised absence or lateness; or repeated or serious breach of rules relating to accommodation.

General Advice For Under 18s

Make sure your mobile phone is always fully charged and you have the school numbers saved in your phone.
Emergency school contact numbers: +44 7435134046 or +44 7387222310
Make sure we have your mobile number

  • Do not carry a large amount of cash with you and do not display expensive possessions (jewellery, phones, computers). It is a good idea to keep some change in a separate pocket so that if you forget or lose your bag, you still have some money to get home.
  • You don’t need to carry your passport or national ID with you, it would be better to carry your student card or other forms of ID. We can look after your ID.
  • It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to buy alcohol or cigarettes. It is also illegal to buy them on behalf of other under 18s. Drugs are illegal and may cause you to be in serious trouble and anyone caught using drugs will be reported to the police.
  • You must take part in the supervised social programme provided by the school if you are under 16. If you are unaccompanied and aged 16-18, we will check on your social activities.
  • Don’t go out alone after dark. Always travel in pairs or in a group.
  • Scarborough is a safe town, but you still need to be careful.
  • Avoid certain areas like the beach at night, especially around the amusement arcades.
  • If you go out at night, make sure you are home by your curfew time.
  • Your host family must know what time to expect you home.
  • You should contact them if you think you are going to be late.
  • Make sure there is always someone that knows where you are going.
  • Please be aware that it is dangerous to go near the cliff edges, to swim outside the recommended areas at the beach and also to cross train lines.

  • If you find yourself in a situation you think is dangerous you can:

  • Phone for a taxi: NIPPY: +44 1723 377 377

    Care should be taken with social media and the internet. It is best not to exchange such information with adults you meet in the school.

    If you have any worries or concerns, please speak to a member of staff you feel comfortable with. Our student
