We know how important it is to be happy where you are living so that you can get the most from your time in England. This is why we choose all student accommodation with special care. We offer three main types of accommodation.
Living with a family gives students an ideal opportunity to learn about the English way of life. Students of different nationalities are often placed with the same host family to encourage spoken English. Host families provide a very homely environment and are all within easy walking distance of the school.
In the winter, students are accommodated in single rooms, unless they ask to share. In the summer, students under 18 years old are accommodated in a twin-bedded room.
All host families are carefully selected and most of them have worked with the school for many years.
We try to ensure that:
- All host families are within easy walking distance of the school
- You will not be placed with another student of the same nationality
- Your room will be clean and comfortable with fresh bed linen and towels provided every week
Hotels or Guest Houses*
There are a wide range of small hotels and guest houses available in Southbourne and the surrounding area.
Centrally located, fully-equipped houses and flats are available.
Advice is always available from our Welfare Officer. If necessary, students normally see their host family’s doctor or dentist, but the school can help if this is not possible. Students are strongly advised to take out adequate insurance before travelling to Britain.
