Become a Host Family

Families with or without children, as well as responsible single adults can become host families. Families provide a warm and caring environment in which the student becomes an active member of the family where they can experience British culture and improve their English.

The experience for both the familiy and students can be enriching and memorable. Both students and families are selected with great care and students are expected to abide by the customs and reasonable expectations of their host family.

As a Host Family you:

  • Welcome a student into your home as a family member
  • Provide an individual bed and meals
  • Maintain contact with the school Accommodation and Welfare Officer
  • Assist students in settling in and arranging transport to and from school
  • Attend host family induction, student welcome meetings and farewell parties

All adult family members are required to understand the school's guidelines and code of conduct, and to sign an declaration confirming their acceptance of these. Those families hosting under-18s have additional responsibilities under our Safeguarding procedures and adults require a current DBS Certificate.
