Host family

As the school is one of the oldest in Portsmouth, it has the advantage of being able to work with the best families in town. All families are situated within walking distance to the school (on average 20 minutes and 35-40 minutes in the summer).

During the week the students have half board and on weekends full board. As the school is accredited by the British Council, it puts emphasis on not placing two students of the same nationality in one host family. The families acommodate at least 2 students. This is the most adequate way for students that wish to practice their English with native speakers and have inclusive meals.

Executive Host Family

To enhance the social, cultural and intensive language experience, we encourage professionals to stay with a carefully-selected Executive Host family. These families are educated, hospitable retired people or professionals who love welcoming international students. Feedback over the years has demonstrated outstanding satisfaction levels. This accommodation is on half-board basis: breakfast and dinner on weekdays, and all meals at the weekend. Many of these families have a private bathroom available (subject to availability). The earlier you book, the more likely it is that you are able to have a private bathroom.  There’s no difference in cost if a private bathroom is available.

Residence

This self-catering residence is located a mere 3-minute walk from the school. It is centrally located and close to shops, restaurants and bars. The 20 rooms are spread over two houses and all have their own shower and wash basin. The rooms include a double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and a desk. Bed linen is provided, but towels are not included.

There are two communal kitchens, with their own dining rooms, and two further communal kitchenettes. There is also a laundry room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. Both buildings have a live-in house manager who lives on sight to ensure student safety and living comfort. All rooms include free WiFi throughout the building. Smoking is not allowed.
