Accommodation

Homestay

Living with a British family is a great and effective way for you to improve your English and learn more about British culture while living in London. It gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself fully in the local culture and to feel part of a family. With carefully-selected host families, you will be treated as a member of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas. You may choose to live with an English-speaking family in their home. ‘English-speaking family’, as used here, usually means a husband and wife, or a husband and wife with children, living in the same house. However, there are many families which have one adult and child or an adult living alone. Whatever the family you live with, they will be friendly and willing to help you improve your English and ensure you get the most out of your time in London. All homestays are in convenient locations for the school.

However, you may prefer independent accommodation, either in a separate part of a family home, or in a house with other students, but with no landlord on the premises. We are continually expanding the range of accommodation available, including residential accommodation.
During the busy period (June – August) homestay agencies are used.

Homestay Plus

All our homestay residences are conveniently located for the school. However, if you want a homestay closer to the school and of an exceptional high standard, homestay plus is for you. When choosing this option, we guarantee at least one of the following:

  • wi-fi
  • ensuite bathroom
  • closer location to the school
  • larger bedroom
