We make sure that all our students have a happy, safe homestay to return to after school.

We carefully select all of our hosts and we have been working with some for many years.  A typical homestay provides a family feel, and could be one or more adults with or without children. We have a large selection of homestays to choose from and any that host under 18 year olds are guaranteed to be police checked.

We also have a designated Homestay Accommodation Officer who visits the homes to ensure they are of a high standard. We believe that choosing the right host for you is very important, as we want you to feel comfortable, happy and safe during your stay.

Most of our homestays are within walking distance of the school and adults aged 18+ are guaranteed single rooms all year round.

When living with a host, you’ll enjoy home comforts and learn a lot about the English way of life.

Using every opportunity to practice your English is important to learning faster. We will try to accommodate you in a twin bedded room with a student of the same sex and similar age. They may be from the same country . You’ll learn much more by speaking in English at every opportunity.

“My host family is really good. They are polite, communicative and help me in all situations if I need it. The food is very tasty and my room is very tidy so I’m happy.” – Victoria

During our quieter seasons, students can have a room to themselves, unless they ask to share. As it’s busier in the summer, students under 18 years old share a twin-bedded room to help with demand.

What we need to know from you

The more we know about your needs, the more we can do to help. Whether they are special accommodation requests, allergies or dietary requirements, let us know before arriving. We want to match you with the homestay best suited to you.

Many hosts in England have pets. Therefore, if you do not want to stay with a host that has animals please tell us and we will do our best to help.
