MORE THAN JUST ENGLISH
The majority of our students choose to live with our specially selected and monitored homestay families. All of our host families live within a 25 minute walk of the School.
We recognise that having a relaxed and welcoming family to live with is one of the most important factors to a successful and rewarding stay. Your comfort, happiness and welfare are vitally important to us, and we are committed to making your time in the UK as enjoyable as possible. Many of students stay for a long period and we spend a lot of time selecting the right family. Staying with a family is the best way to get to know a country and its language and is the cheapest option for living in the UK.
On the booking form you have the opportunity to put any special requests such as dietary requirements, allergies to pets, special needs and interests, etc. This information is important to help choose the right family for you.
Your accommodation is arranged from Sunday to Saturday. You will have your own room with sufficient storage areas, and you will be the only student from your own country staying with the family unless you have requested to share with a friend.
Homestay Dining Options
Students can choose one of the following options when living with their homestay family:
At weekends, accommodation is on a Half Board Dinner basis with your homestay family.
The School has a dining area and kitchen which provides fresh wholesome food (including vegetarian) each day.
A snack bar and a la carte menu is available Mondays to Fridays. With advance notice we can also provide for special diets such as gluten-free, vegan, lactose-intolerant or allergies. For some extreme diets or those with gluten allergies an extra charge may be made.
