Host family

This is an opportunity for our students to live with a local British family, enjoy the local traditions and cuisine and, most importantly, an excellent chance to practice English in a family setting. It is a fantastic way to meet new people and learn about the local way of life. Families never have 2 students of the same mother tongue unless the students ask to share with a friend.

Host families are carefully selected by the Globe Accommodation Officer and are within 25-30 minutes’ walk from the school. A free bus pass is given on the rare occasion families are located outside of this distance.

Daily transfers between the school/accommodation/activities are provided for the Explorers (7-10 years).


Families are carefully selected and are located near the school. They provide a comfortable, heated bedroom and offer breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal. They will do some light laundry on a weekly basis, if required.

 

Curfew

The times on which students should be back in their host family each day depend on the time of the year and the age of the student.
