Host family


This is an ideal option for students who want to immerse themselves in the daily life of an English family. Families provide half-board or breakfast only, and single rooms. Highgate is a residential district and families live about 40 minutes from the school. During the high season, students under 18 years may be placed in a twin room with another student of a different native language but of the same age. If travelling with another student, you can benefit from a better price by booking a twin room. Contact us for more information.

Note: during the summer months, the accommodation may be located at a greater distance from the school.
