Our International Students are placed in homestay accommodation in the local community, usually close to the school. Homes are carefully chosen and monitored by our homestay coordinator throughout the year. Students may contact the coordinator at any time if they need help and advice.

Each student is met at the airport and introduced to their homestay family and the school by an orientation programme facilitator.
