We work with various agencies offering a range of accommodation including local host homes, student residences and bed breakfast establishments.

Host homes

Ideal for students who would like to live with British hosts and experience first-hand native speakers' lifestyles.  Hosts will provide a room and breakfast or, If desired, students can opt for half-board where home-cooked, evening meals are provided.

All hosts homes are inspected for their suitability and placements are made to suit student preferences.  Most homes are located within a 30 minute travel zone, some may be walking distance.


Our preferred local agent is called McKennas Homestay and they have been matching students and hosts for many years now.  All host homes are inspected for suitability and carefully monitored once a student is placed there.

Student residences

The student halls of residence are 30 minutes’ train journey from the school and offer single rooms in flatlets with communal kitchens/dining area.
