Living in a homestay can be one of the most rewarding parts of the student's visit to England. The Mini-Stay programme gives students the chance to live in a home environment and experience the culture first hand.
All of our hosts have been visited in their home and they must meet British Council standards. They have been selected because of the comfort of the home and the warm welcome they will be able to give you. Most homestay are a bus ride away. We provide bus pass as part of the programme.
The school has its own café where students have lunch after class. We provide our students with good healthy food and balanced menus. On excursion days, packed lunches are provided by the host families.
Bournemouth benefits from excellent transport links. The fast train link to London from Bournemouth station means the capital can be easily reached within 2 hours.
Students can fly to Bournemouth International Airport or Southampton Airport which is only 45 minutes from Bournemouth. Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain and Italy all benefit from direct flights into Bournemouth and Southampton.
