For maximum contact and conversation.

This is not just accommodation, this is your home; the perfect way to learn about the British way of life, food, customs and traditions. You will join in the host’s activities and daily life. This is definitely the best way to practise your English conversation skills outside of school. Our families come from interesting backgrounds and want to learn about you!

Our accommodation coordinator carefully matches each student with their host. Please let us know when you register if you have any allergies or preferences. We will send you a profile of the host family we have selected for you about 2 weeks before you arrive. Once you full fees have been received.


Your host will provide you with bed, breakfast, a packed lunch to bring to school (full board only) and an evening meal each day. Your host will provide towels and bedding and will offer you a weekly laundry service. You will have access to bath or shower facilities every day.


Adult students always have their own room. Some hosts can accommodate more than one student at the same time, but never two students that have the same mother tongue.

Teenage students will have either a single room or share a larger room with a student of the same sex but different nationality.

Homestay accommodation is possible for adults or teenagers (accommodation fees are included in Teenager Summer English & Activity courses).  All teenagers will be full board.

Our inspecttions meet British Council standards.
